FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 05, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Quality Metrics Redux:
Taking Advantage of FDA's Renewed Focus
**An FDAnews Webinar**
Oct. 17, 2018 — 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

Quality metrics… A scary prospect? Maybe. A valuable opportunity? Almost definitely.

After more than a year in regulatory limbo the FDA is breathing new life into its proposed quality metrics program.

The agency began a year-long voluntary site visit program in August to learn what types of metrics drugmakers collect and which are the best indicators of quality success or failure. It intends to use quality metrics to support its risk-based inspection planning with mandatory participation.

Mark the calendar for a strategy session with two knowledgeable industry activists, Steven Mendivil of Amgen and Denyse Baker of AstraZeneca. Over the course of fast-paced 90-minutes, they'll explain the latest developments and what they mean.

Attendees will discover:

  • How the pilot program is progressing and what the FDA has learned so far
  • How to take advantage of opportunities to provide input to the FDA before it drafts regulations to implement the program, including contact with appropriate agency personnel
  • Important details of the FDA's latest draft guidance on quality metrics, including what information is to be included in a meeting request and what information FDA would like to see during a site visit
  • Major industry concerns, such as metrics selection and definitions, and how the agency is addressing them
  • And much more

Quality metrics is no longer a distant dream. It's coming and drugmakers need to prepare their quality system to meet it.
