Top Tips for Clinical Quality

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) are fundamentally similar, in that the goal of each is to refine processes to ensure quality and facilitate conformance to regulatory guidelines. Both fall under the umbrella of good ‘execution’ practices (GxPs), which is intended to ensure consistency, data integrity, accountability, traceability and overall quality.

Understanding Operational Efficiencies

To see how GMP strategies can benefit the clinical world, it is necessary to thoroughly comprehend what a quality management system (QMS) is and what it is intended to do. A QMS is the collective set of policies, procedures, methods, resources, documentation and infrastructure required for the effective implementation of quality control and assurance in an organisation. The focus of these interrelated processes and activities is the achievement of quality objectives and policy that allow companies to execute measurable and repeatable procedures that meet regulatory requirements.

While some firms still rely on paper-based QMS operations, the use of a variety of hybrid paper-electronic systems or fully electronic QMSs is now more common. Historically, the QMS software solutions on the market have included modules for managing documents, training, quality events and reports/analytics. Automated QMS products currently on the market feature solutions specifically designed to manage other quality-related areas, such as audits and suppliers, under a single platform. While many enterprise QMS solutions are installed on premise, technological advances have spurred a trend of life sciences companies adopting cloud-based QMS solutions.
