Medical software supports diagnosis and therapy in medical care. The software can be a stand-alone product, e.g. an app on a smartphone, or a component of a medical device, e.g. for device control.
Strict Regulations for Medical Software
In order to protect patients from harm, medical software is subject to particularly strict regulations. It is classified as a medical device. The requirements for the approval and operation of medical devices are very high. The European Medical Device Regulation, which has recently come into force, has significantly increased the requirements once again. Companies that want to market medical software are confronted with a regulatory jungle. Small and medium-sized companies are particularly affected.
