Health Business Breakfast: Agile co-creation in medical software creation

Innokas Medical and BusinessOulu/OuluHealth are arranging Health Business Breakfast in Oulu in June. The aim of the event is to share ideas and experiences on software as part of regulated medical devices – processes, competences and ways of working to support the development.

Time: 18 June 2019, 8.30 – 11.00
Place: Kirkkotorin koulutuskeskus, Asemakatu 5, Oulu
Topic: Agile co-creation in medical software creation
This event will be held in English or in Finnish, depending on the participants’ preferences.

Registration is open.

In recent years, one of the main growing trends in the medical field has been software. Different kinds of design challenges, which were previously solved by mechanical and hardware solutions, are now being solved with software. Additionally, the role of connectivity and wireless feature will have a significant impact on medical devices. This will increase software complexity even more.

Companies need to be able to develop even more complex solutions that will allow maintainability and testability over the long life-cycle of a medical device and, at the same time, meet the growing regulatory requirements as well as end users’ needs. Additionally, the development cycles should be closer to consumer electronics and allow agility for changes.

Keeping up with the global competition requires continuous development work from companies – both in software development and in their SW competences as well as SW testing procedures and working practices.

Join the event to find out more, discuss and network with the professionals in the field!
