LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Qmed.com, the world's only 100% qualified medical device supplier directory, search engine, and central industry resource, today announced a partnership with the industry's only site that provides ground-breaking detailed reports of industry-related adverse events, DeviceMatters.

"We are thrilled to provide Qmed users and the medtech industry with FDA reports that provide key insights into adverse events and medical device failures in the industry.  The reports found on Clarimed's website DeviceMatters can also act as an early warning system for OEMs and product development in the future," stated Tim Simone, Qmed Brand Director.

Clarimed has recently uncovered that over 330,000 medical device adverse events with patient outcomes were reported to the FDA in 2011 alone. This is a sharp increase from only 3 years ago. Adverse event reports are filed when somebody has been injured or could have been injured while using a medical device. These reports do not prove that a device caused the injury, but it does provide a sense for how much risk is involved in using medical devices.  Clarimed's overall goal is to help industry professionals understand regulatory requirements and the current medical device landscape including approval specifics, post-market safety performance and typical device failure modes.

The new resource, listed under DeviceMatters on the Qmed Resources page, provides Qmed users exclusive access to download reports by product code, device category, or by manufacturer. Users can find and download free reports on any device category or manufacturer.  Full detailed reports are also available for a fee. 

"Clarimed is the first company to classify adverse events and put them into context, and I am very pleased that UBM Canon and Qmed are helping to facilitate this service – it is revolutionary for the medtech industry," commented Steve Corrick, Senior Vice President of UBM Canon. 

"Transparency of information with analytical insights not only heralds better quality, but also fosters innovation.  DeviceMatters, in association with Qmed, enables medical device industry professionals to improve their R&D, manufacturing, quality and portfolio initiatives by providing insights into medical device quality, its impact, and how specific improvements can help save lives and improve market positioning," said Dr. Nora Iluri, Founder and CEO of Clarimed.  "Our partnership with Qmed is very important. It allows us to leverage Qmed's strong platform and tremendous base to help DeviceMatters reports reach the right audience in the right context," said Dr. Iluri.

Dr. Iluri will be the Keynote Speaker during a luncheon presentation at the BIOMEDevice Boston conference and event on April 25.  She will also be delivering a demonstration on DeviceMatters during the Innovation Briefs Theater on April 26.  For the conference agenda and registration details, please click here
