In 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. Each of these themes leads to a final goal; you will need to use the power of an automated, integrated Enterprise Quality Management System (EQMS) to achieve a mature, global quality system.
Our recent infographic details some of the typical paths that organizations take to achieve the benefits of automated, global EQMS. These end goal benefits include process and data harmonization, structured organizational hierarchies, enterprise integration, extended supply chain management, and a significant reduction in overall cost of quality.

Let’s face it, the arms of regulators are getting longer and so is their vision. The extended supply chain is experiencing additional oversight by regulatory bodies around the world, and in fact, your suppliers’ suppliers are not immune to that scrutiny. The list of organizational quality stakeholders continues to grow as the value chain expands to include suppliers and even regulators themselves.
This means that a Quality Management System (QMS) needs to be enterprise strong and it needs to be global if an organization is to respond to harmonization of standards, guidelines, and regulations around the world regarding the organization’s value chain.

Product Quality is a given in Life Sciences organizations; after all, the purpose of producing a medical device or pharmaceutical is to improve the life of the patient using the product. The backbone to producing quality goods is a Quality Management System
(QMS) that, by definition, supports the processes focused on consistently meeting customer requirements and enhancing customer satisfaction.
In a global industry environment that is constantly evolving, it has become apparent that a new approach will be required if organizations are to achieve the goal implicit in that definition. The Quality Management System will need to simultaneously evolve beyond the role of company historian and expand its primary focus of achieving compliance. Quality data needs to be turned into information that is informed, actionable, proactive, and predictive. In other words, information that truly fosters a culture of quality.
