Medical Device and Diagnostics Industry (MD+DI) Magazine announced it’s 2018 list of finalists for MedTech Company of the Year. The industry publication named Boston Scientific among the list of 10 companies that have “risen above the rest in 2018.” For over a decade, both IQVIA and Pilgrim Quality Solutions, an IQVIA company, have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with industry leading Boston Scientific. MD+DI cited Boston Scientific’s aggressive Mergers & Acquisition strategy. In July, the company’s CEO Mike Mahoney “reassured investors that the firm’s M&A appetite was part of a very well laid out plan.”
Adopting an automated CAPA system
Pilgrim Quality Solutions’ relationship with Boston Scientific was launched in the mid-2000s, shortly after the medical device manufacturer had merged with another leading life sciences enterprise and acquired several other medical device companies. Those activities prompted Boston Scientific to seek a standardized global, enterprise-wide Nonconformance and CAPA Management system to streamline and optimize these processes across all sites.
Pilgrim, now an IQVIA company, offered the best fit with Boston Scientific’s IT strategic plans and roadmap for further harmonization and cost reductions. Pilgrim’s SmartSolve Quality Management System (QMS) is built on a scalable workflow architecture with best practice solutions and backed by a world-class organization.
Establishing a harmonized global Quality Compliance process
The implementation of Boston Scientific’s “eCAPA” program, built on Pilgrim’s solution, marked the first time the manufacturer deployed a validated Quality Compliance solution platform globally. Following implementation, it has continued to execute a highly efficient, effective, and simplified CAPA process, enabling it to quickly identify and correct issues for its customers and patients and to be continuously competitive in the world device market.
Pilgrim Quality Solutions congratulates Boston Scientific on its recent achievements and for being named a MedTech Company of the Year for 2018 by MDDI.
