The challenge of building a medical device on Drupal


Diversity in Drupal is discussed a lot but there is even another dimension: The diversity of the projects and products we are working on. Drupal is a CMS software and mostly used for building websites, but there are other use cases bringing their own demands to the community.

I want to share our experience with building a medical device class 1, why we believe that Drupal is the right framework to use, but also the difficulties we face with this unconventional use case.

This talk is for anybody who is, for example,

  • curious and interested in looking beyonds horizons
  • using Drupal in an unconventional way
  • working in a medical context

As I will cover several different aspects but will not go to much into detail, no technical knowledge is needed.
