About the Event


Predictable And SuStainable Implementation Of National Registries For Cardiovascular Devices (PASSION) II

Links to recordings


The MDEpiNet Public Private Partnership (PPP) leverages thinktank/incubator meetings to promote Disease Specific/Device Specific Working Group projects.  By charter Working Group projects are required to deliver:

  1. Immediate impact on a specific device-evaluation related question(s), and
  2. Infrastructure or analytic solutions generalizable to other device areas

Over the 18 months since the PASSION I launch meeting there has been significant progress within the specific working group areas and projects, as well as in FDA strategic priorities and the National Device Evaluation System.

Thus the general objectives of the PASSION II Thinktank/Incubator meeting are to:

  1. educate working group participants, MDEpiNet PPP members and other interested parties on the current status of these topics and projects, and
  2. to engage, inspire and invite members to consider new CV device-related projects for submission to the Scientific Oversight Committee.
Specific objectives and emphases for presentations and discussion 
  1. Update on new 2016 CDRH priorities and on the National Device Evaluation System.
  2. Update on progress, current status and directions for existing Working Group programs over 18 months since PASSION 1, with specific emphasis on:
    1. The Working Group “value propositions” within and across projects, from discrete practical deliverables to generalizable principles suitable for application to evaluations of other devices.
    2. Emphasis on project-specific what’s working, what’s not working, what are priorities for going forward in near term and long term.
    3. Compare and contrast solutions and problems encountered within and across working groups, including:
      1. Informed consent
      2. Registry integration and data integrity
      3. Statistical analyses
      4. Monitoring
  3. Distill practical suggestions, timelines and solutions for application within Working Group meetings on day 2.
