Course Description:

Many medical device companies are surprised when they have a recall, a 483, or even a warning letter. To prevent quality and compliance issues, a company needs to have an efficient and effective Quality Management System (QMS) including good metrics and dashboards. Metrics and dashboards can help to proactively and consistently measure the health of the Quality Management System. A balanced scorecard can help companies identify the top areas for improvement. Well-developed metrics and scorecards can bring risks and improvement opportunities into focus. Metrics and data are a key part of Management Review. Management needs to know how the quality system is performing, where the risks are, and where to invest precious dollars for improvement. This course can help you determine what to measure, how to present information, and how to escalate issues for management review.

Why should you Attend?

Bad data means bad decisions! Without proactive and timely metrics, a company is blind to the health of its quality system. Without metrics, a company cannot ensure they are meeting the needs of their stakeholders. This can lead to disaster for the company or, even worse, its customers. Medical device companies face ever increasing scrutiny from the FDA and other regulators. Customers demand quality and safety. The business requires efficient and effective use of resources. And companies need a good set or metrics to meet these stakeholder needs. Challenges that companies face include:

  • Lack of data
