High-quality servicing and repair allows devices to continue to function safely and effectively. Unfortunately, these activities are not always performed correctly, compromising both patient safety and the device itself. It is MITA’s position that
everyone who services a medical device should be held to the same minimum quality, safety and regulatory requirements.
MITA has not only proposed a framework for defining 'service' versus 'remanufacturing but has also published a new standard that outlines minimum quality management requirements for servicing medical imaging equipment.
Going forward, MITA will continue to work with stakeholders to advocate for quality requirements through multiple channels: regulation, legislation, and voluntary Standards.
