Dispovigilance - Main features
“Dispovigilance” is the IT System to support the Medical Device Vigilance System.
It is designed to manage data on incidents related to medical devices, FSCA (Field
Safety Corrective Actions), NCAR (National Competent Authority Reports) and the
transmission of data to the European database Eudamed. The system also allows
the management of FSNs (Field Safety Notice) and gives the possibility to publish
them on the Italian Ministry of Health website, for online consultation by the
operators and citizens.
