About IEC 62304
In healthcare, the use of software is becoming increasingly important and can contribute to more efficient and safe patient care.
The international standard IEC 62304 specifies requirements for software lifecycle processes – both for embedded and standalone software, such as for medical apps. The requirements relate to software development, maintenance, risk management, configuration management and problem-solving processes.
IEC 62304 relation to other standards
Risk management and control are integral parts of the IEC 62304 standard, which also refers to ISO 14971: Risk management for medical devices. Furthermore, usability and the respective standards IEC 62366: Usability engineering for medical devices and IEC 60601: Safety requirements for medical electrical (ME) equipment and in medical systems are taken into account in the development and use of software.
When developing standalone software – software that is to be brought to market without dedicated hardware – the standard IEC 82304-1: Health software – Part 1: General requirements for product safety also applies.
