Relieve regulatory pressure with Embase.Contact an Embase expert
Why medical device manufacturers can rely on Embase
The regulations are already tough – and getting tougher. Updated directives such as the European Commission’s MEDEV 18.104.22.168, MDR, and recent signals from the FDA mean closer scrutiny of clinical data. As a result, there are more stringent requirements to issue regular, accurate updates including Clinical Evaluation Reports, Post-Market Clinical Follow-Ups, and Period Safety Update Reports. If device manufacturers aren’t prepared to comply when the new guidelines take effect, they’ll face both legal and commercial consequences.
Embase makes your work easier by providing a quicker and more streamlined way to access medical literature. PICO-based searches enable you to source accurate data and to be constantly vigilant of all data relating to your product, including adverse events and competitive performance metrics.
Providing 2,900 more journals than free sources, and 3.2 million abstracts from 7,000 conferences, Embase is the gold standard that gives you maximum coverage – and maximum confidence that you can stay on the right side of the regulators.
How Embase helps you
Depend on reputable sources
The guidelines of at least six highly-regarded regulatory authorities, health technology assessment bodies and other EBM related agencies specifically name Embase as a potential source to be used.
Increase efficiency and productivity
Embase’s PICO search function makes reporting faster, while satisfying regulatory guidelines for
objective, non-biased, systematic search and review.
Bridge content gaps
Embase covers 2,900 more journals than MEDLINE. In one example, Embase indexed 12,458 references to one manufacturer: 5,413 of them were not on MEDLINE.
