Usability testing on medical device labeling can help avoid these consequences and improve your return on the investment (ROI).

Description

Usability testing is a ’Best Practice’ method for assessing the efficacy of your labeling and enhancing its value to your users.

Imagine being able to anticipate how the FDA and users might react to your medical device labeling before launch. Usability testing helps you do this by providing an objective assessment of its effectiveness and usability. Based on recent reviews of device submissions, the FDA has expressed concern that most labeling is ineffective and unusable by the intended user; professional or lay, and may be a source of use errors leading to adverse events. As the same time, we know that most users don’t read the manual. Usability testing is a ’Best Practice’ method for assessing the efficacy of your labeling and enhancing its value to your users.

Medical device labeling includes paper-based user manuals and quick start guides or electronically delivered videos, DVDs or web-based tutorials and can consume 20% or more of the cost of a new product. Regardless of cost, ineffective labeling produces economic consequences that can: negatively impact clinical studies, hinder FDA approval, delay launch dates, spike costly Customer Support calls, and in worse cases, provoke liability claims. Usability testing on medical device labeling can help avoid these consequences and improve your return on the investment (ROI).
