WAND Medical Devices Taxonomy Just Released!

The new WAND Medical Devices Taxonomy is designed to provide anyone involved in the development of medical devices the ability to tag and organize the enormous number of documents generated during this process.  This taxonomy provides a foundation of 656 terms and 327 synonyms and can be customized to include terms specific to the devices that are currently being developed, have been developed, or are currently on the market.

The WAND Medical Devices Taxonomy covers the process of bringing a new device to market.  Higher level terms include Devices, Development Process, Medical Device Therapies and Treatments, Education, Training and Support, and Documentation.

The taxonomy also includes the topics of Standards and Guidelines, Associations, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and European Regulations.

Use the WAND Medical Devices Taxonomy to better organize data and content as you navigate the path of inventing, developing, and providing a safe and effective device.

The WAND Medical Devices Taxonomy, as with all WAND Taxonomies, is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
