This is what MedtecLIVE and MedTech Summit 2020 have to offer.
Agile app development in a regulated environment: Automate Everything
The development of medical apps will become even more attractive in 2020 with the German Digital Care Act. To meet the demands of app users, the providers of modern, medical apps must be able to react to user feedback quickly. Agile software development is a common approach to respond to feedback in short cycles and to iteratively develop a product. Given the regulatory framework the resulting short release cycles are not easily applicable in medical app development. Changing requirements during the development of medical apps requires a high level of process maturity and tool support. This means that manufacturers often shy away from changes and prefer to develop them in a classic manner with a upfront defined set of requirements.
QuickBird Medical develops medical apps for customers in the MedTech and pharmaceutical industry. As a young, dynamic team, we focus our work on how we to apply agile techniques to the development of medical apps. In this talk we give an overview of how modern tooling and lean, automated processes enable the agile development of medical apps. In concrete examples, we show our development process with a focus on requirements management, release engineering, verification and documentation.
Agenda: 1. Development without regulation vs. with regulation 2. Partial automation of the technical documentation within the IEC 62304 3. Tools to facilitate agile development 4. Optimization of the software verification process 5. Make the requirements analysis efficient and ensure traceability
