Compliance with ISO 14971:2019 requires medical device manufacturers to not only take a proactive attitude to risk management but also understand the perceived risks attached to the medical device itself. The concept of risk has two components; the probability of occurrence of harm and the consequences of that harm, both of which have varying degrees of severity.
Orcanos Risk Management has been designed to guide medical device manufacturers along the right path to compliance in a single workflow. Risk management is an accepted part of any product lifecycle, but the identification, tracking and mitigation of potential risks can become lost in paper-based and disparate systems.
Our system brings design control, risk and quality management into one integrated solution. By combining all the necessary elements for ISO 14971:2019 compliance into a centralized location, medical device manufacturers can reduce the risk of failure, ensure potential hazards are mitigated and prevent the occurence or consequences of harm.

The key to effective Risk Management is to reduce the level of risk that can impact an organization. More often that not, this relies heavily on knowing when a potential problem is about to happen.
Orcanos’ Risk Management system has an integrated alert mechanism that notifies end users and stakeholders about any anomalies in the compliance process, generating a breakdown of impact analysis and actionable insights.
Tracked elements include:
The Orcanos Risk Management tool can be customized to identify and highlight applicable risk elements in a medical device. This customization includes but is not limited to:
Risk assessments can be triggered from any associated Orcanos module and can be traced back to any defined work process. These include:
Orcanos Risk Management software includes a risk-based dashboard and access to analytic reports that can define a risk threshold.These embedded features can not only help trigger risk alerts and reports, but also increase team awareness of a product issue.
In addition, the in-built Document Generation tool will generate an RMF document ensuring automatic traceability that eliminates human error. This document can then be uploaded into the Orcanos e-DMS system for approval and e-signature.
