Post Market Surveillance (PMS) is the practice and system of monitoring the safety awareness training of a medical device after it has been released on the market.
It relies on several foundations including unique device identifiers (UDI), electronic health records and medical device reporting, device registries, and advance methods for evidence generation, data analysis and vigilance awareness training. It is a system that continues to develop and improve.
