About UserWise:
Our mission is simple…to SAVE LIVES lost to preventable medical errors. Every year there are over 210,000 preventable medical errors which lead to death. Our goal is to do everything in our power to reduce this number significantly. Following global regulations and best practices, we do this by conducting usability studies for testing medical products.
At UserWise, we co-create safe and usable medical products with our clients. In our studies, we recruit real-life people and observe them simulating the use of medical products to reveal ways to improve these products for our clients.
UserWise is an industry leader in Human Factors Engineering for medical products headquartered in San Jose, California, and with sites also in Boston, and Washington. We are looking for someone who wants to make a significant impact in the medical field to not only prevent deaths but also to improve patient care worldwide.
User wise is a subsidiary of ClariMed Inc.:
“The premiere, human centered development and regulatory practice for medical products, point of care devices, companion and combination products, and SaMD.”
ClariMed was formed with the vision that a unique market opportunity exists to build the leader in human centered regulatory and development services for medical products. We believe that a focus on placing human factors at the core of device development and regulatory pathways translates to a “quality by design” approach that drives outsized value for patients, customers, and shareholders. We also believe that a stronger calibration to risk/benefit is emerging and will continue to be a driver of market clearance and reimbursement, which in turn will lead to clients that place an emphasis on “smarter” development.
