Thomas Bento is a student of Quality and Regulatory Compliance and has been supporting the design, development and compliance of Medical Device Manufacturing for 17 years. He started his career training in Software engineering and shortly moved into Commercial Software Quality. After many years of working for companies like Mitek Systems and Hewlett Packard, the decision was made to work in the regulated space of Medical Device Manufacturing, working at Edwards, Pulmonetic Systems, Regulatory consulting and SVP at Nihon Kohden America. Now he is Consulting for Philips Medical Systems. Through his experience he has found that the common thread that runs through the fabric of most Medical Device Manufactures is that more is better in order to meet regulatory expectations. He finds that this is the exact opposite and that manufacturers are better off by cultivating a simplified defensible approach to regulatory compliance founded on understanding and addressing Risk Management Appropriately.
