Electronics providers specializing in medical electronics jump through a few more hoops to qualify serving your program needs. Medical electronics / devices (MedTech) are categorized into three classes by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Class I, II and III. Classification is based on risk to the user / patient with Class I posing the lowest risk, Class III the highest.

Adoption of any new technology such as AI is largely driven by accessibility, economics and usability and the vast majority of contract electronics providers are resistant to change.

Where providers might dabble in AI is usually only at the request of a large customers, and only after the customer has provided partial NRE investment assurance and even then, most efforts Venture Outsource has seen in this area amounts more to a degree of MES marketed as AI or, some derivative of low-level machine language, and not AI able to infer from seemingly disparate data silos.

Meanwhile, providers offering services for FDA compliant products must have their facilities FDA certified. Providers with international manufacturing locations will have obtained FDA registration and ISO 13485/88 certification.

Barriers for bringing new medical devices to market can be challenging. Balance between medical product outsourcing activity with contract manufacturing partners and medical device manufacturers is key. But FDA Cleared medical devices not only undergo less scrutiny than FDA Approved devices, they also require no proof the medical device actually works.

FDA cleared devices can legally promise more than they deliver. The way most medical devices become cleared (v approved) is through a loophole in the FDA’s system called the 510(K) pathway. This can be good for medical device manufacturers wanting to get product to market quickly.

The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act Section 510(k) mandates OEMs marketing medical devices need to register / notify the FDA at least 90 days in advance of the date the OEM intends to bring its medical device to market. Read more about FDA approved devices vs FDA cleared, here.
