            Gary Buzzell, Regulatory Specialist, Siemens Healthcare

Wrap up your 2011 on a high note … with this special one-time-only encore presentation.

A final rule from the FDA requires devicemakers to begin filing medical device reports electronically.

Once you begin filing electronically, the FDA will expect you to file everything electronically, including: initial reports; supplemental/follow-up reports; file attachments (as PDFs or zips); and source (e.g., user facility) reports.

It’s a learning curve, best climbed early, advises the FDA’s Indira Konduri.

Here’s your opportunity to have an FDA official answer your questions — and more. Read on ...

For devicemakers, a major change looms in dealings with the FDA — the way reports of death and serious injury are filed is to go electronic.

No more paper. No more Excel spreadsheets. You have a lot to learn about eMDR.

Who better to ask for guidance than the FDA?

Mark your calendar for Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011, when an FDA expert will answer your eMDR questions — all of them.

FDAnews has invited CDER official Eugene Reilly for 90 minutes of discussion and Q&A. And you can join in without ever leaving your desk.

The issue is 21 CFR 803, the rule requiring devicemakers to report serious and fatal events to the FDA. More than 600,000 reports are filed each year.

Two years ago, the FDA proposed switching to electronic filing. Despite criticism of the proposed regulation, the final one shows only minor changes, including the following:

  • Creating a test account with the FDA’s Electronic Gateway System (EGS)
  • Getting a digital certificate and authenticating your digital identity
  • Submitting test MDRs to CDRH and getting CDRH to approve your production account within the ESG
  • Submitting MDRs as XML files, with attachments encoded in Base64

Plan on taking extensive notes as Mr. Reilly covers:

  • How to submit reports and supplements — the basics
  • Automated vs. manual — deciding which submission route to select
  • 6 steps for getting onboard with the eMDR system
  • Best practices for submitting eMDRs
  • How to set up and test your system
  • Implementation tools and strategies
  • Implementation challenges and solutions
  • And much more

eMDR Conversion and Implementation is convenient to attend. All that’s required is that you be in front of a screen at the appointed time, whether you work at the office or telecommute from your office at home.
