NEST Forum

On September 22, key opinion leaders from across the medical device ecosystem, including FDA, gathered to share the latest advancements and practical uses of RWE through the 21 NESTcc Test-Cases underway, with deep-dive presentations on 5 of the research projects.

NESTcc’s Test-Cases provide insights into adult and pediatric populations in 10 therapeutic areas across all 5 stages of the total product life cycle. At the NEST Forum, experts offered their perspectives on the use of real-world data (RWD) to move safety and innovation forward and change the paradigm of clinical research.

Emerging Issues in UDI – A NEST Collaborative Community Discussion

On October 15, NESTcc hosted a virtual event to kick off the NEST Collaborative Community Unique Device Identifier (UDI) initiative.

Our inaugural NEST Collaborative Community event gathered leaders from across the medical device ecosystem, including FDA, industry, payers, and patients, to discuss emerging issues related to unique device identifiers (UDI).

The NEST Collaborative Community provides a forum for stakeholders to work proactively to improve the speed of innovation and enhance the safety and effectiveness of medical device and health technology.

UDI was selected as the initial Collaborative Community focus because of its broad relevance across the medical device ecosystem, the importance of policy decisions to multiple stakeholders, and the urgent need for cooperative engagement.

Emerging Healthtech Media Interview

In late 2020 Joe Mullings, Chairman and CEO of the Mullings Group Companies, sat down with MDIC President and CEO Pamela Goldberg and NESTcc Senior Vice President Sandra Siami to discuss MDIC’s focus on real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE).

The discussion considers how NESTcc can provide an efficient way to execute studies using RWD, refine the risk/benefit ratio for a product earlier in the total product life cycle (TPLC) and assist healthtech companies in generating high-quality RWE for their needs across the TPLC.
