Life Sciences Enterprise Quality Management
Maintaining the highest quality levels and strict regulatory compliance affects the bottom line and can be a matter of life and death for medical device, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. To protect both companies and consumers, and meet increasingly tough FDA and other regulatory body demands, it’s essential to understand and meet the challenges of global corrective and preventive action (CAPA), complaints management, change control, audit management, supplier quality, and overall product quality management. In addition to the FDA’s stringent 21 CFR Part 11, 54 and 58 requirements, companies face serious regulatory scrutiny from the Department of HHS and its HIPAA patient privacy regulations. It is incumbent upon life science manufacturers to use software, hardware, and system processes that ensure only those personnel required to see a given piece of data are in fact allowed to access it. AssurX software is designed with enterprise quality management, cGXP, and life science-specific regulatory requirements in mind. Successful life science companies are using the AssurX QMS software platform to centrally monitor, manage and improve their quality and regulatory compliance processes—and the bottom line—across all operations.
“Companies such as 3M expect a field-proven solution, and AssurX delivers not only the product, but a high level of expertise.”
