Pharmaceutical Organizations: Are You Ready for the Unexpected?
Kari Miller, Vice President of Regulatory and Product Management, Pilgrim Quality SolutionsUnforeseen, unanticipated, unpredicted, unexpected. These are frightening words to pharmaceutical quality and compliance professionals because an unexpected event often indicates a costly, risky problem; it means that something is not completely under control. This, of course, has regulatory implications. One familiar regulatory example is 21 CFR 211.192: “Any unexplained discrepancy…shall be thoroughly investigated…The investigation shall extend to other batches…that may have been associated with the specific failure or discrepancy. A written record of the investigation shall be made and shall include the conclusions and follow-up.”

Bernard Jee, Product Manager, Pilgrim Quality SolutionsNobody likes to hear complaints. When we do, our basic human instinct is to withdraw into our shell and stop listening.

For this reason, ongoing communication flow is critical.

Get Quality in the Loop: 5 Key Processes to Integrate with Your Quality Management System (QMS)
Massimo Franza, Senior Director of Software Engineering, Pilgrim Quality SolutionsThink about your quality system. When you initially automate a quality process, you begin by determining the ideal process flow, data you wish to capture, check points to be recorded, and how information should flow between members of your team. But what about the intersection of where a quality process ends and another business process begins? Some of these intersections may be critical checkpoints between quality and compliance processes and the rest of your business. Notifying Quality about customer complaints, updating Production with nonconformance dispositions, or providing access to documents that need to be referenced from quality records are just a few of the examples of where quality systems interacts with the rest of the business in real-time.
The Path to EQMS: Where Are You Along the Journey to Quality Maturity?
Rick Lowrey, CEO, Pilgrim Quality SolutionsIn recent posts, we’ve dug into the need to transform your quality management system and even how to extend quality management processes outside the four walls of your organization.
