Sponsored Webcast: Building Compliance with an Electronic Quality Management System (On-Demand)

This is an On-demand recording from March 2022.

Ensuring data integrity and patient safety has never been more challenging given the complex industry business models that have evolved over the last decade. Risk-based, fit for purpose approaches have become increasingly popular within operational functions. Novel operational solutions are being implemented across the industry, often before quality management systems and/or functions are established. This has led many leaders to inadvertently make risk-based decisions in a vacuum filled with myths and misunderstandings about the requirements, activities, and value associated with quality management system regulatory requirements.

Building a compliant, practical, and efficient quality system is foundational for a pharmaceutical company as well as the vendor companies that operate on their behalf. Like any foundation, the weaker it is and the longer corrections go unaddressed, the higher the risk to long term stability. Now that technology can dramatically improve efficiencies throughout the drug development and product life cycle; why do the same professionals who would never consider implementing a paper Trail Master File or an adverse event case processing and reporting system believe it’s too early for an electronic quality management system? This is happening due to inaccurate and misinformed risk/benefit decisions.

Sign up to attend this live broadcast and learn why it’s never too early to implement an electronic quality system. The program will discuss common myths driving leadership decisions related to quality management and assurance and paving the way for logic to prevail. You’ll to gain into clarity, compliance and how to build a stronger organizational foundation.
