Clinivation Global software automates and controls the management of highly-regulated business processes for worldwide medical device submissions and approvals.

“Smart companies understand that compliance with Section 406 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires internal controls for compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules, and regulations.

clinivation® Registry Suite® Solution Enables Better Postmarket Medical Device Safety
According to a recent study funded by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), in a one year period, 452,000 visits to emergency departments were for injuries associated with medical devices. During these visits, 58,000 patients died or were hospitalized for injuries associated with medical devices. And among patients hospitalized for other reasons, it is estimated that more than one million injuries associated with medical devices occur every year.
To address this growing problem, the FDA has launched the Medical Device Postmarket Transformation Initiative that includes the CDRH Medical Device Postmarket Safety Program. In addition, the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) is extending these postmarket safety initiatives to medical device companies worldwide.
Clinivation Registry Suite enables medical device companies to achieve better postmarket safety by reporting postmarket, real-world data to regulatory authorities and company executives faster and more accurately than ever before. It is the first complete solution to deliver on medical device industry and regulatory requirements for registry design, platform and architecture flexibility, and productivity features for more efficient data capture, tracking, validation, and reporting.
“We designed clinivation Registry Suite to transform the medical device industry and reverse the trend of ever-increasing patient injuries that now number in the millions,” said Joseph Kozikowski, M.D., clinivation’s Chief Executive Officer. “We expect widespread adoption, because achieving better postmarket safety is now a mandated goal of every medical device company in the world.”
