Erin McDermott

Account Executive, Reed Tech Life Sciences

Erin focuses on the medical device industry areas of regulatory intelligence, risk management, competitive research, and post-market surveillance. She specializes in identifying process improvements for regulatory data monitoring and analysis utilizing the power of Navigator for Medical Devices.

In her spare time, she volunteers her digital media skills for organizations in her local community and volunteers at the local animal shelter.

ReedTech.comQ: What can you tell us about your current role?

A: My current role at Reed Tech is a hybrid position supporting Navigator for Medical Devices across all territories. I support anyone interested in learning more about evaluating risks associated with medical devices and customers of Navigator for Medical Device.

Every day, I learn more about how regulatory intelligence is gained with multiple searches across public data bases. The process is very individualized, especially for 510(k) search. One common ‘aha’ moment is that searching and then filtering results by multiple criteria, like ‘indications for use’ and device description is a huge time-saver. Demonstrating how much Navigator has changed the way medical device safety data research can be done makes my role fun and challenging.

Q: What is most motivating about your work?

A: I have always enjoyed solving the puzzle, so to speak, by creating unique solutions tailored to meet the needs of individual customers. As an Account Manager, I enjoy identifying the questions that can be answered with Navigator.
With Reed Tech specifically, I am able to take pride in knowing that I am helping make medical devices safer for patients while also assisting my customers.

Q: What is a little known fact about you?

A: I am a huge animal lover and proponent of animal rescues. I currently have a rescue dog, a German Shepherd Terrier named Stevie, and two rescue cats, Herbie and Tully. I also foster animals and volunteer at my local shelter.

Q: What is one of your favorite quotes?

A: “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” ~Greek Proverb
