How many years have you been in the industry?
I have been in the Healthcare industry for nearly 30 years, mainly in IVD product development. Many changes in those years!
Why do you believe that the Device & Diagnostic Labeling Conference is important?
From my own experience, coping with the dramatic increase in new laws and new initiatives has been challenging for our business and forums like this conference helps to understand how others have interpreted the issues, developed strategies and practices to address these needs. Sharing this kind of information is invaluable.
What do you hope attendees will take away from your presentation, workshop or panel discussion?
My hope is that participants will have a better understanding of the importance of product labeling to product quality, and of the commercial and regulatory challenges (and opportunities) that global manufacturers and suppliers face today.
What inspires your passion and/or interest for medical product labeling and/or healthcare?
Healthcare is the most exciting and dynamic business to be in! Within healthcare, product labeling serves to define the terms of performance and utility. I’m inspired in the connection we make between our products and our customers and how product labeling can reinforce product quality, usability and value. Our role contains elements of and expertise in product development, quality / regulatory and manufacturing / supply chain functions.
Scott will be one of the distinguished presenters at the Medical Device and Diagnostic Labeling Conference.
