Event Description

Beyond Internal Metrics: Customer-Focused

Medical Device Management Reviews

Presented by: Monica Daneshrad

The management review cadence evaluates the efficacy of the quality system against key performance indicators or metrics established by leadership. Timeliness of activities such as customer feedback, training, and internal audits are reviewed robustly; however, there is still an opportunity to actively address the needs of the customer. Understanding the needs of the customer allows the company to deploy resources and solutions to reported complications of breast implants and cardiac ablation procedures. The tools that allow for this understanding are based upon the Law of the Market and the Law of Focus. Information from different channels can be aggregated via quality management tools such as affinity diagrams, interrelationship digraphs, and impact effort matrices. Links between various ailments and product design have been found, using these tools. Information from available channels of customer communication can be leveraged to further reduce reporting of signals due to product improvement.

By attending this clinic presentation, you will:

- Understand the current state of medical device management review body of knowledge.

- Apply certain quality management tools to further understand product issues and impactful solutions.
