Medical device manufacturing companies generate a copious number of documents when implementing a Quality and a Regulatory Management System.

Various applications are available for purchase but at a high cost and unfortunately with ongoing maintenance license fees and the use of the service provider’s cloud systems which at times becomes questionable with current cybersecurity issues we all face.

This session will take through a new paradigm in work practices for managing documentation without the need to continuously search and question obsolescence and relevancy. It will introduce the use of Microsoft Excel and hyperlinks to manage particular areas of document and project management.

You will learn how to best manage your documents, remain compliant to ISO 13485 but most importantly eliminate one of the biggest time wasters when documents are saved by one person and retrieved by a different person in your organisation.

ISO 13485:2016 will be the reference document for all matters in this course.
