The Right to Repair Medical Devices: Recapping the Debate

When you buy something, should you have the freedom to get it fixed any way you choose? It’s a question surrounding everything from cars and cell phones to gaming systems and life-saving medical devices.

The “right to repair” movement is making headlines, and the medical imaging community is a part of the ongoing debate. It’s been an issue for quite some time, but discussions over how much control manufacturers should have over repairability gained steam when the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States.

As hospitals saw the first influx of COVID-19 patients, ventilators quickly became critical devices for care. However, some healthcare providers found themselves with ventilators that needed repair and no way to do the work to fix them on their own. That’s because certain original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) did not allow it or do not make certain parts and tools publicly available.

Fill out the form to learn more about how right to repair legislation spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic could impact how medical imaging systems are fixed and maintained.
