1:45-2:30 p.m. The Two Sides of Human Factors
Many involved with medical device manufacturing have some contact with human factors; for some, it’s from a design aspect, while others address it from a regulatory perspective. This session will seek to address the topic from both sides, discussing best practices for implementation, the benefits of it, and why it should matter to everyone from design team through to marketing. Join these two seasoned professionals as they have an open dialogue on topics including usability testing, formative vs. summative testing, human factors for a device used by a patient vs. a healthcare professional, and more.

Speakers:

    Michael Drues, Ph.D., President, Vascular Sciences
    Bryce G. Rutter Ph.D., Founder and CEO, Metaphase Design Group Inc.

What does it mean to be a purpose-led company and what is the business case for becoming one? This session will discuss the impetus for companies to adopt and live into a purpose that delivers both business and social impact. The concept of shared value will be discussed, as well as approaches to get started on developing a corporate responsibility strategy. Recent trends, examples, and tools will be offered, and participation from the audience to share their own experiences and shape the discussion is encouraged.
