What is MDSW and SaMD?

In medical technology, two terms often encountered are MDSW (Medical Device Software) and SaMD (Software as Medical Device). What are the differences and similarities between these two terms?

MDSW (Medical Device Software)

Medical Device Software (MDSW) refers to any kind of software used for medical devices. This can include software that is part of a hardware medical device, such as firmware or other forms of control, and companion software for the hardware device. It can also refer to stand-alone software that is a medical device running on general-purpose hardware like PCs, smartphones, or a cloud computing environment. MDSW is found in a wide range of medical devices, from small insulin pumps to large MRI machines. MDSW is the term the MDR uses for software systems or components of MDs and IVDs.

SaMD (Software as Medical Device)

SaMD refers to software intended for medical purposes without being part of a hardware medical device. So, it is equivalent to the second case of MDSW, running on any general-purpose hardware like PCs, smartphones, or a cloud computing environment. Examples of SaMD include mobile health apps for tracking vital signs, diagnostic software for analyzing medical images, and algorithms for predicting patient outcomes. The term SaMD was used in the context of the MDD and is no longer mentioned in the MDR.
