In February, we published a blog series titled EQMS for X. This series of posts focused on the need for automating quality and compliance processes across sectors. We created a collection of seven posts covering the role of a next-generation cloud-based EQMS in manufacturing, lifesciences, CPG, hi-tech, cannabis, aerospace and automotive sectors.
In this blog, we focus on the need for a robust quality & compliance process at medical device enterprises. We recently published a whitepaper titled ‘A 7-Step Guide to Quality & Compliance for Medical Devices Companies’.
The paper suggested a 7-step framework to build a robust EQMS process, which is especially relevant for the medical device landscape. Here’s a snapshot of what we suggested:
- Step 1: Understand the regulatory landscape
- Step 2: Design your Quality & Compliance Process
- Step 3: Benchmark against industry best practices
- Step 4: Design standard operating procedures
- Step 5: Create a Master Quality & Regulatory checklist
- Step 6: Quality Analytics to derive insights from Quality Data
- Step 7: Continuous Improvement
While product recalls and stringent FDA guidelines are one reason to build a top-notch quality process, there is no doubt that quality can deliver competitive advantage in the medical device space. While R&D is critical, the ability of a medical device company to scale depends on manufacturing prowess, high levels of focus on customer service and a relentless pursuit of excellence. This is possible by adopting an unflinching focus on quality in every step along the way.
