FDA Voluntary Improvement Program: Fostering Medical Device Improvement

Digital Health Track

In 2023, The FDA announced a final guidance entitled “Fostering Medical Device Improvement: Food and Drug Administration Activities and Engagement with the Voluntary Improvement Program.” The program, facilitated through the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC), is intended to guide improvements to enhance the quality of devices. This session will provide an overview of FDA’s participation and engagement with the Voluntary Improvement Program.
