Quality: STOP Working on Compliance

Excessive focus on compliance can create hurdles in cultivating quality and innovation

By: Daniel R. Matlis, President

What is the role of Quality in MedTech? 10% said the primary role of quality is to drive product / process improvement. In sharp contrast, 85% indicated the primary role of quality is ensuring compliance

No wonder, the industry has to overcome some many hurdles when cultivating a culture of quality and innovation.

To compete in today’s global markets, Med-Tech companies must change their approach to Quality, from meeting compliance requirements, to driving product and process improvements across the product life-cycle.

A closed loop approach can help MedTech organizations make this crucial shift by enabling better collaboration, visibility and product quality across the product life-cycle.

New Research: Driving a Culture of Quality Within the Medical Device Ecosystem

Axendia conducted a study focusing on the medical device induCulture of Quality Infographicstry’s ability to build a “Culture of Innovation and Quality.” The goals of this research were to identify and analyze trends, requirements and initiatives organizations are undertaking to proactively manage products and platforms across the product lifecycle.

In support of the research, we surveyed 110 medical device professionals representing 59 medical device manufacturers from 12 countries, and engaged in one-on-one interviews and group discussions with industry thought leaders.

The research resulted in an e-Book: Driving a Culture of Quality Within the Medical Device Manufacturing Ecosystem.  In it, we discuss the value, challenges and opportunities of transitioning medical device companies from the current regulatory and compliance focus – to sustained, predictive practices that advance medical device quality and safety to achieve better patient outcomes.  We also reveal how the Industry is prioritizing investments in technology in support of quality initiatives.
