Quality Roadmap for Medical Devices

In addition to all of the typical challenges of building a tech/device startup (e.g., development, marketing, hiring, etc), medical device startups need to adhere to regulatory and quality endpoints. While a variety of factors come into play, there are four phases that can help you build a quality roadmap. 

We're delighted to have Melita Ball host our March 25th Quality Leaders Forum to discuss her experience building quality roadmaps with medical device startups and her 4 Phase framework.

Fail Faster and Succeed Quicker

Emerging tech is developing so rapidly that it's a challenge for almost any business to keep up. In the Life Sciences, we have to balance innovation with regulatory standards and safeguards that often have life and death consequences. But that doesn't mean that we have to wait to experiment with what could be game-changing advancements.

We're delighted to have Evun Wyer host our March 11th Quality Leaders Forum to discuss his experience exploring emerging technologies for a global pharma technology division--and without breaking the bank.

Our 2021 Product Roadmap: Add Your Voice

ZenQMS was developed by our founders with deep expertise in CMO/CRO and clinical IVRS. Our creators were users and that's key to our (not so) secret sauce. Over the years, the ZenQMS community has been integral to iterating and innovating on our design.

Now, we're creating a formalized feedback system where you can check out what's on deck for the upcoming enhanced Documents Module and also add new ideas. This event is for current ZenQMS customers. Please sign up here and we'll send the roadmap beforehand.

This session is for current ZenQMS customers. *This session has reached capacity*
