Smart Quality is the new quality model that empowers Life Sciences organizations to transform quality into a key catalyst for value creation, rather than being merely an unavoidable cost of doing business.
As quality professionals in a dynamic Life Sciences landscape, we require a forward-looking approach that generates value far beyond regulatory compliance.
We need a proactive quality model. A different way of seeing quality, embracing it as a catalyst of value creation, rather than it being a necessary evil of doing business.
The Smart Quality approach empowers everyone in the organization to take ownership of quality, engages employees, and reduces compliance risk. By combining advanced data analytics, personalized continuous learning, and proven gamification methodologies, our Smart Quality Platform helps Life Sciences organizations accelerate time to market by more than 30 percent and reduce their total cost of quality assurance by up to 50 percent – thereby reducing the compliance burden and releasing key business resources to focus on higher-value tasks.
Shifting from quality as a cost to embracing a new state-of-the-(sm)art quality, Life Sciences companies now have the unique opportunity to implement an approach that goes well beyond “compliance-only” – unifying the entire organization around a comprehensive quality and evidence-driven reality.
Equipped with real-time data and insights, Life Sciences organizations can shift their attention from uninspiring, repetitive, and reactionary tasks to high-value work leading to product innovation and impactful improvements.
Accessible data and user-friendly processes encourage everyone in the organization to integrate quality into their daily actions naturally, thereby reducing the compliance burden.
Optimized systems and streamlined quality workflows catalyze value throughout the organization every day; reducing costs and shortages, saving resources, boosting release cycle times, powering production, and speeding up time to market. The impact? Improve patients’ lives.
Where are Life Sciences companies today in their Smart Quality journey?
Quality, up until today, is often viewed as a necessary cost of doing business, something that is mandated by regulatory bodies but is otherwise not much more than an admin- and cost-heavy burden to the organization.
As a result, the grand scheme of things has remained invariable over time: complex requirements and reactive processes entirely upon defensive compliance strategies.
In an increasingly digital, patient-experience, and insight-driven Life Sciences ecosystem,
a scatter-shot approach to quality focused on "compliance-only" no longer works. But,
How can organizations adapt their operating models to the multifaceted and ever-changing needs of patients, regulatory bodies, and partners?
How can quality help accelerate science and innovation, while reducing compliance risk and costs?
Crossing the threshold beyond quality processes and compliance
With a Smart Quality mindset, employees across the organization are equipped to harness quality into a value catalyst and optimize quality processes, while reducing compliance risk, and seizing the emergent opportunities for innovation.
