Using Metrics to Monitor and Improve Your Quality System

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


Medical Device companies need effective metrics and dashboards to ensure they are proactively and consistently meeting the needs of all their stakeholders:
Customers: It is critical to maintain metrics to ensure that your customers are receiving safe and effective products. Metrics that measure and trend product quality and customer satisfaction are critical. Fast or real-time systems are needed to ensure proper responsiveness.
Regulators: Proper metrics can help you identify, analyze, and mitigate compliance risks.
Business Stakeholders: Better decision making is enhanced by good data and information. Good metrics and scorecards help create a transparent environment where key indicators are proactively measured and addressed. Proper metrics should escalate and inform the appropriate levels of management, improving decisions on where to put resources.
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. Without proactive and timely metrics, a company is blind to the health of its quality system. This can lead to disaster for the company or, even worse, its customers.

Areas to be Covered:

How to create a balanced scorecard
How to move from lagging to leading indicators
How to use indices or profiles to create a more complete picture of performance
Lack of transparency in quality/compliance data
Use of metrics and dashboards for management review
Maturity levels in use of metrics
Scalability and hierarchy in metrics

Who will Benefit:

Quality Assurance Managers
Quality Control Managers
Regulatory Affairs Teams
Compliance Managers
Individuals preparing data for Management Review
Directors, VPs, and others attending Management Review
