What is intelligent quality?

Intelligent quality is achieved by businesses that are living the letter and spirit of their quality systems in the most efficient way possible. 

And for these businesses, quality becomes the basis for their reputation and serves as a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Risk management is embedded in every process and is a driving force in CAPA. Actionable intelligence is readily available and the leaders of the organization are empowered to make informed business decisions.

Companies that invest in intelligent quality will reap the business benefits inside and out.

If everyone in the company, including senior management, has a clear view of quality, then your entire company becomes more intelligent.

For companies in regulated environments, quality IS business. Hear from Panos Boudouvas, CEO of ZenQMS, and find out what that entails.

Why does quality matter?

Don’t take our word for it: Read the FDA’s recommendation for drug current good manufacturing practices (CGMP)

It is the role of management with executive responsibility to create a quality culture where employees understand that data integrity is an organizational core value and employees are encouraged to identify and promptly report data integrity issues. In the absence of management support of a quality culture, quality systems can break down and lead to CGMP noncompliance.”




Does quality save lives?

The answer is a resounding yes! 

Companies designing or manufacturing drugs or medical devices that will be used by patients require documentation around processes, workflows, outcomes, and changes. They also need documentation for which employees are trained, responsible, and accountable for those activities. The absence of those measures can introduce variability, result in noncompliance, and even lead to death.

The FDA regulations are in place to safeguard the public from undue risks. They are not intended to slow down the process of bringing new drugs to market. Hence, the FDA preaches the importance of quality.

To help reduce drug shortages, we need manufacturers to sell quality – not just medicine.
