The launch of a newly developed National Medical Device eAlert System designed to streamline the management of medical device safety notices within the public health system was attended by multidisciplinary healthcare professionals at the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland in Dublin recently.

Developed by the HSE’s National Medical Devices Equipment Management Committee, in collaboration with the Quality Improvement Division and with assistance from the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA), the aim of the eAlert system is to provide each HSE or HSE-funded voluntary service location assurance in the management of medical device safety or quality related notices issued by the HPRA. A key component of the medical device vigilance system is the dissemination of information, which may be used to prevent recurrence of an incident or to alleviate the consequences of such incidents.
