The UK Ventilator Challenge - a developer's story

25 June, 2020

 11:00AM EDT (4:00PM BST)

Rob Morgan, VP - Medical and Carl Hewett, Senior Product Development Consultant will talk about how the UK industry was mobilized to address the forecasted shortage of ventilators for treating COVID-19 patients. By request of the UK Government, Sagentia developed a new ventilator in 7 weeks in an environment with extreme supply chain conflict, employee social distancing and with limited access to clinicians who were busy treating patients. Much was learned in the process and Rob and Carl will share how they worked with a regulator to navigate an exceptional use approval pathway, designed to minimize international supply chain risk, incorporated user led design when the users are busy dealing with the crisis and how to take time out of a product development project.
