Beyond the How-to: Special Requirements of Medical Software Documentation

Thursday, 2 September 2021 at 12 Noon to 1:00 PM Eastern time (GMT-4)

Medical software documentation starts with a foundation of privacy protection and accessibility. It is built with good communication, SME interviews, and an ability to learn software programs quickly. In this webinar, Erin Wiedemer briefly shares her process for documenting medical software, from the kick-off meeting to product delivery. Her focus is on strong communication with SMES and developers, and adherence to the requirements of HIPAA and Section 508/WCAG 2.0.

Attendees will learn why minimalist writing techniques can be integral to successful medical software manuals and how to  adhere to the required privacy and accessibility standards. A significant portion of the webinar is devoted to the complex requirements and standards of medical software manuals.

Attendees will leave the webinar with a general understanding of the unique challenges of medical software documentation, as well as tools to begin meeting those challenges immediately. Erin will also provide resources for further study on minimalist writing and HIPAA and Section 508/WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards.
