All reputable professions are governed by a strong Code of Practice – and the medical software industry is no different.

This  Code of Practice is an agreement between the MSIA and its members (and other software professionals who subscribe to the Code), which sets out the minimum service standards that clients can expect from members. It also outlines how complaints and disputes regarding potential breaches of the Code can be resolved.

The Code aims to:

  • build professional competence in the medical software profession; and
  • increase consumer confidence in medical software professionals – and the role they play in the delivery of healthcare. The Code is overseen by the MSIA Executive and Governance committees.
  • The service standards outlined in the Code are also aimed to safeguard self-regulation of the industry.
