The clinical evaluation is the heart of every technical documentation. Finding the right strategy is crucial for your MDR certificate. I can support you with establishing the:
- Clinical Development Plan
- Clinical Evaluation Plan
- State of the Art Evaluation
- Clinical Evaluation Report
The requirements for post-market clinical follow-up have been reinforced with the EU MDR 2017/745. Any gaps identified in your Clinical Evaluation Report should be closed with the right PMCF activity. Let's find the right solution for your product:
- Literature reviews
- User surveys
- PMCF investigation
- Device registry
The Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance is required for all class III and implantable devices. It consists of a section for healthcare professionals and one for patients, if applicable. As the SSCP is made available to the public, I am happy to support you in writing this document in the most efficient way.

"Katharina’s work is detailed, clear, descriptive, and persuasive. For example, she has authored several comprehensive Overseas Clinical Data Analyses and Evaluations for the China National Drug Administration (CNDA). She has reviewed and summarized the international literature for CNDA evaluations, researched the international guidelines and guidance documents, and written comprehensive gap analyses detailing the similarities and differences between the regulatory requirements and clinical data presented internationally and in China. These types of documents, if written poorly, can be difficult and confusing; because she is an excellent writer, Katharina makes them concise, accurate, and readable."
