Why we’re here
We created this meetup to invite, inspire, and illuminate creativity and ingenuity in the SaMD space.
Since we began as an Angular meetup in 2013, we’ve learned so much about agile software and product development. Unlike any digital agency or dev shop, we help clients frame problems, find product-market fit, and enter the trenches with them to execute their vision.
We’ve completed over 900 projects, with hundreds of clients, intersecting healthcare, e-commerce, finance, and other industries. And in the last 5 years, clients have increasingly sought our help in designing and developing SaMD, and we’ve noticed some patterns in the challenges they encounter in this specialized market.
Supporting the tech community and advocating for innovators are part of our DNA—and we’re here to give back and support innovators in this nascent space.
Show up, be present, and learn about our triumphs, missteps, and failures; what’s new in the SaMD space; and share your successes, challenges, and questions. We would love to inspire you and be inspired by you! We look forward to meeting you! 🥳
What is a SaMD?
Software as a medical device is a term used by regulators to refer to software applications with a medical purpose (e.g., treating or diagnosing a disease or condition). A SaMD is a medical device in and of itself, without being a part of a hardware medical device.
Patients’ expectations are changing: every other aspect of their lives is digitally enabled, data-driven, and available at their fingertips.
Software as a medical device represents an enormous opportunity for creating evolvable, high-impact, and value-added digital products that will reach mainstream adoption quickly.
Plus, you can build and launch a SaMD much faster than you can a hardware medical device—and with lower starting costs.
