Benefits of Integrating Risk Management into the EQMS

AssurX Risk Management software is highly configurable, enabling you to create workflows with decision paths that satisfy the needs of your organization. Risks initiated from any source are automatically associated with related product records across the system, forming an enterprise level approach for rapid mitigation. AssurX’s flexibility and intuitive approach to managing risk results in significant benefits including:

  • Simplified Compliance Through Quality Risk Management

    Risk tools embedded within the EQMS streamlines compliance with regulatory and organizational requirements because risk is incorporated into quality processes and daily activities.

    Integrated risk tools allow you to document risk-based activities with:

    • Data analytics and reports
    • Audit-ready compliance records
    • 21 CFR Part 11-compliant electronic signatures and audit trails
    • Documentation of verification activities such as audits and FMEA reviews
    • Records of risk assessments associated with change control activities
  • Improved Operational Efficiency

    Integrating quality risk management reduces the time and costs associated with risk assessments and makes operations more efficient by prioritizing issues with the biggest impact on the company. Efficiently route tasks down the appropriate path for actions, escalations and exceptions.

    • Launch risk assessments from events such as complaints and deviations
    • Search historical records to identify similar events
    • Notify responsible parties for management review
    • Calculate risk scores based on a risk matrix
    • Determine whether risk is acceptable or unacceptable
    • Review notifications from failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Enterprise Visibility into Quality Risk

    Quality risk management enables greater visibility into risk using predictive metrics that indicate where problems are most likely to occur and whether corrective actions were effective. Proactively identifying risk trends at the strategic level can eliminate major effects on the entire company. Configure recurring events to trigger risk assessments, and use audits to verify risk activities and conduct risk assessments on failed audit questions.

  • Informed Decision-Making

    Risk management software allows you to document and demonstrate risk-based decision-making for regulators and as well as company leadership. Gain insights into universal metrics that make decisions more objective. AssurX risk management software takes the subjectivity out of competing business decisions and turns the focus to data-driven indicators for product failure, potential consumer harm, and business losses. AssurX enables agile, risk-based decision making with top-level views of risk through reports, dashboards, notifications, and escalation activities.
