Make use of digital solutions and contribute to advancing health and welfare with advanced technologies

Technological solutions for health and welfare maintain and advance the quality of life, wellbeing and health of people

Digital solutions are developed at an ever-increasing pace enabled by the health and welfare technology. Many equipment and software suppliers have taken up challenges related to this sector, which requires – besides new digital solutions – also knowledge of related legislation and quality requirements.

Equipment and software suppliers operating in the health and welfare technology must be familiar inter alia with the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and standards related to Total Quality Management and Risk Management regarding their own activities and products and solutions.
