Stay purpose-focused (and know the details are in check).

You have vision—that’s why you are part of the medical device community. But to take your innovative ideas to fruition, there are countless regulatory hoops that must be successfully jumped through.

To keep your efforts on point, you need a project and process management system that ensures operational efficiency—and control. Robust tools will give you the optimal blend of usability and flexibility to stay informed, control project work and schedules, and keep project teams aligned with collaboration and reporting tools.

The right process management software will allow you to:

  • Determine constraints that drive the start date of a selected task and easily trace critical paths in projects/process plans to find the root cause of delays.
  • Access the most frequently used information needed to manage projects and processes with predefined reports to easily track resources, maintain costs, and communicate progress with your team.
  • Create and share master templates to easily implement processes that are pre-populated with tasks, critical content, and resources.
  • Maintain a central, secure repository for efficient storage and access to control projects processes, documents, policies and procedures.
  • Gain enterprise-wide visibility into project statuses with measurable performance metrics and improve communication and teamwork across departments and functional areas.
  • Lower the cost of regulatory compliance (such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11) with electronic documents and electronic signatures, version control, audit trails, and the ability to manage permissions to control the access and management of critical content.

Maintain document control.

Medical device document management and control is essential for an effective quality management and regulatory compliant system, especially as your product pipeline expands toward commercialization goals. To meet these challenges head on, it’s vital to manage information across your entire operation, ensuring regulatory compliance including: FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations; ISO quality standards; Sarbanes-Oxley Act requirements; and other regulations.

What are some of the key elements of a central repository for all your critical business information? Your document management system must allow you to:

  • Create a searchable library of business and regulatory documents.
  • Organize and control critical content.
  • Demonstrate authenticity and non-repudiation.
  • Improve communication and teamwork across departments and teams.
  • Lower the cost of FDA regulatory compliance with electronic documents, e-signatures, version control, audit trails, and the ability to manage permissions to critical content.

What’s the right Quality Management System software?

The medical device industry is a highly regulated environment that requires a stringent adherence to quality. So, you need a QMS software that helps you manage the project process to enhance team collaboration, reduce time to market, and manage critical information that can be immediately accessed.

But with so many QMS software options in the global market, how do you choose the one that’s best for your specific medical device needs? Here’s a helpful checklist to consider.

Research regulatory requirements that apply to your medical device. 

Ensure that you have a strong grasp of the regulations and certifications applicable to your device and country. Your quality management system software features and quality processes should be designed around these regulations to ensure a culture of compliance in safety across your organization.

Your QMS software needs to be priced for purpose. 

Use a checklist to determine the key purposes the QMS will serve and who will use it. This will help you decide if the QMS software needs to be feature-packed and modern or relatively inexpensive.

Know the software’s limitations

QMS software contributes to increased quality and cost savings, but it does have its shortcomings. Be sure the software must be easy to implement and customize when needed. It should also be user-friendly and require less maintenance and upgrades while being stable and secure.

Figure out the resources. 

Read reviews of the ISO 13485 Quality Management System or ask for case studies to understand its timing and resources. The software must be capable of identifying common trends in complaints and failures on the production line. It should be able to streamline quality across all the key functions while maintaining compliance. It should facilitate effective resource utilization.

Choose a trusted partner with expertise. 

There are myriad companies worldwide offering QMS solutions ranging from cheap to expensive. Choose to reputable partner that is trusted in the industry. They must have proven experience in implementing and supporting QMS software for industries similar to yours, with a firm understanding of the standard regulatory and safety procedures. Their software will be pre-built with many compliance procedures that are common to your requirements.

Software for the medical device manufacturing industry is constantly advancing, so the ISO 13485 Quality Management System you choose must be designed for scalability and integration for the long run.

Audits without intimidation.

The healthcare industry, whether it involves pharmaceuticals, biotech treatment protocols, or medical devices, is highly regulated—as it should be. Because the FDA has been established to ensure public safety as the latest healthcare innovations are brought to market, audits will happen. They must.

But the audit process doesn’t have to be scary. LuminLogic, a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant SaaS solution that supports document, regulatory, quality, and risk management systems for medical device, pharmaceutical and biotech companies during the commercialization process, can take the stress out of audits. Our audit management software solution enables you to attain and maintain compliance by automating, streamlining, and managing the auditing process.

Not only does the FDA conduct audits to ensure your business is operating in a way that supports the approved and safe use of your products, your company sponsors and partners will perform audits to confirm that you’re supporting their regulatory obligations. So, during and after product commercialization, accurate data tracking—and your ability to show it—is imperative.

A robust audit management software solution sets a secure foundation for streamlining any audit process. When you can collect and track data with on-demand reports that identify document creation and modification specifics, you’ll be able to provide custom documented information trails to meet precise auditor requests.

“Audit” doesn’t have to be a bad thing. If you’d like to learn more about the LuminLogic audit management software solution, reach out to us today.
