As medical device companies grow, often information silos become the norm. Communicating complex technical information between manufacturers, subcontractors, and regulators becomes more difficult. In order to make this process more efficient and less error-prone, companies can use a simplified quality process to help make all the functions across your company (quality, environmental, health & safety) operate effectively to help address repeat system patterns and root causes.

Topics covered include:
  • How using the Consiliso method can reduce inspections and approval times
  • Tactics for achieving a higher quality maturity model and ranking
  • Ways to speed the merger and acquisition integration process
  • Case examples showing cost savings and quality improvement
