Using Metrics to Monitor and Improve Quality Management System Webinar
Time: 11:30 AM PDT | 02:30 PM EDT
Duration: 90 Minutes
Instructor: Susanne Manz
Metrics and data are integral part of Management Review. Management needs to know how the quality system is performing, where the risks are, and where to invest money for improvement. Attending this course will help you to determine what to measure, how to present information, and how to escalate issues for management review.
A medical device company needs to have an efficient and effective Quality Management System (QMS) including good metrics and dashboards. Metrics and dashboards can help to proactively and consistently measure the health of the Quality Management System and prevent compliance issues. A balanced scorecard can help companies identify the top areas for improvement. Thought should be given into both lagging and leading indicators for quality and compliance.
