Overview
The scale-up of vaccines for the Covid-19 pandemic on such short a timeline is challenging already strained supply chains. We will discuss this process from clinical testing through production. Relevant examples will illustrate meeting those challenges, from process development and implementation to scale up and validation.

"Medical device packaging in a COVID and resource limited environment"
Jeff Barrett, CEO, J-Pac Medical
Many medical device companies leverage outsourcing relationships for manufacturing their medical devices including for device packaging, which is often thought of last in the product development process. However, FDA approval requires thoughtful packaging design and implementation for approval.  We will discuss the strategies MedTech startups can meet FDA packaging requirements and stay within their timelines and budgetLinkedIn

"Optimizing pre-clinical testing in a COVID world"
Jenny Zeroni, VP, R&D and Operations, VentureMed
Pre-clinical studies are critical to understand device performance and pharmacokinetics, however, COVID has created a challenge to move them forward. We adapted and conducted studies virtually by implementing multiple systems to live stream animal lab studies, allowing us make decisions live, as the studies progressed and to meet our timeline requirements.  We will discuss our solutions and their effects on the submittal process and timelineLinkedIn


"How many elective surgeries were cancelled due to COVID-19?"
Todd Bellemare,
VP of Professional Services
Definitive Healthcare
COVID-19 has led to an unprecedented halt in 'Elective Surgery' - which ranges from vital (such as screening for cancer) to essential (e.g., hip joint replacement, cataracts). The backlog encompasses millions of patients and delays can mean worse patient outcomes and higher costs. Getting the planning right for addressing this backlog is critical for all those involved, especially the patients with delayed care.
