Quality Assurance and Quality Control (Medical Device as Major)

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (Medical Device as Major)

The practice of having any systematic process of checking to see whether a product or service being developed is meeting specified requirements, while developing products and services is called as quality assurance. A quality assurance system is said to increase customer confidence and a company’s credibility, to improve work processes and efficiency, and to enable a company to better compete with others. Quality Control is similar to, but not identical with, quality assurance. Quality control (QC) is a procedure or set of procedures intended to ensure that a manufactured product or performed service adheres to a defined set of quality criteria or meets the requirements of the client or customer. Thus Quality Control and Assurance are vital processes for any industry to sustain in the ever competitive and hostile business scenarios.

The industry is quite challenging and diverse in terms of its services and products. Depending on their business structure, medical device companies can be categorized into pure-plays, conglomerates like non-healthcare businesses, and combined drug-device businesses.
