Plagued by medical device recalls? Worried about liability and patient harm? MedAccred may be the answer.

MedAccred is a device industry-led audit and accreditation program for critical manufacturing processes. It employs expert auditors conducting rigorous process audits across the global supply chain. While quite different from quality system audits, the two approaches can work together to boost quality and patient safety to new levels.

But far too few devicemakers understand MedAccred, let alone make use of it.

Mark the calendar for an FDAnews presentation that shows how to integrate a MedAccred approach into current operations.

Featuring three speakers, two MedAccred thought leaders from J&J and Stryker, plus a MedAccred supplier (Global Technologies), this webinar is a quick-and-easy first step toward understanding and implementing an innovative new approach to supply chain oversight. Attendees will discover how to:

  •     Meet FDA requirements for purchasing controls via the tiers in the complex global supply chain
  •     More effectively improve quality in key critical process areas
  •     Verify that suppliers have critical process capabilities, necessary equipment, controls, qualified personnel, process validation and sub-tier controls
  •     And much more!

A company’s reputation rises and falls on the quality of its products. Why risk FDA sanctions, multimillion-dollar lawsuits, patient injury and even death? It’s time to give this new auditing approach the once-over

Meet the Presenters:

  •     Scott Dauphinee, Director-Supplier Quality & Strategy, DePuy Synthes-J&J. Mr. Dauphinee is a senior executive in charge of J&J’s implementation of the MedAccred program, and a leader of the MedAccred Management Council.
