Streamline Project Staffing Costs and Execution With a Medical Device Staffing Partner

Domestic regulations in the medical device engineering industry have re-tightened since the COVID-19 pandemic, and there are compliance issues with EU medical device regulations. Given these concerns, many companies in the sector have increased their speed to market so they can maintain an edge against competitors vying to overtake and own niches. 

To remain viable in the medical devices space, your organization must establish a robust and scalable workforce in every area of product development. Your competitors have the same objective, so you need an advantage to stay ahead. Linking with a trusted staffing partner may be the ace up your sleeve that you need. 

3 Major Challenges in Medical Device Engineering Staffing

Here are three major challenges confronting the medical device engineering industry:

Finding and Retaining Talent

The life cycle of medical device development is long, with multiple stages containing their own milestones. Successful execution of the cycle hinges on a skilled workforce at every step. The difficulty is finding the right talent for your needs and retaining it throughout.

Process Cost and Efficiency

Developing and marketing a medical device involves multiple vendors, and managing the process is expensive. According to an abstract released by the U.S. Office of Science & Data Policy in September 2022, the expected average cost of developing a single therapeutic complex medical device is $522 million, 85% of which arises during nonclinical development. This figure accounts for failed studies and capital expenses, without which the mean development cost is $54 million. Improving process efficiency, including with recruiting and staffing, means enormous savings for developers.

Trial Quality

Clinical trial quality, whether for a drug or medical device, relies on many factors, including study design, patient recruitment, internal and external communication, site selections, and timelines. Each factor depends on knowledgeable, reliable, trustworthy, and experienced staff.
