What hospital medical devices are in scope for our work

We have a broad range of products that we think could be listed in the Hospital Medical Devices List. These include medical devices as defined under legislation(external link) as well as associated products that support patient care more generally. These products could:

  • be used in a public health setting or be part of a clinically driven pathway.
  • be used to diagnose, monitor, treat, modify, prevent or support health requirements.
  • maintain or improve health and/or safety for all people in the context of the NZ healthcare environment.
  • be part of an integrated system that supports the clinical environment.

These could be any instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, appliance, implant, reagent for in vitro use, software, material or other similar or related product, intended by the manufacturer to be used, alone or in combination for a therapeutic purpose and/or to support a health need - such as rehabilitation equipment, or continence management products.
