1. General Information

This SOP describes how we support the initial integration and update of integrations of our medical devices into the IT systems of our customers. Furthermore, it covers user management and user training. By following this process, we want to make sure that our customers receive our medical devices or services the intended way.

Obvious disclaimer!

The deployment process should be very much customized to the context of your specific product. Are you deploying your product web-based? Are you integrating with local healthcare providers’ IT systems? Depending on those questions, you will have to write each single process step of this template. Sorry to disappoint you! Hope the structure helps you at least to get an idea of the regulatory requirements.

Relevant other documentation:

1.1. Integration Specifications

Integration Specifications are the technical requirements defined in the instructions for use as part of the technical documentation of medical devices.

1.2. Integration Checklists

The Integration Specifications are used to compile the Integration Evaluation Checklist. It is ensured that we do not offer medical devices or services which cannot be delivered by filling out this checklist, for which the Operations Team Representative is responsible. We fill out the Integration Validation Checklist after concluding integration work in order to validate if all technical requirements for successful integration have been completed.

1.3. Device Traceability

The operations team ensures that only released device versions are deployed to the customer environment. Deployment of device versions is documented as part of the medical device list. This file must contain at minimum:
