Medical Device Quality Management Systems has been written with the needs of quality, compliance, and regulatory professionals in medical device companies in mind.  In this book Susanne Manz shares lessons learned from over 30 years of experience in the medical device industry.  She shares secrets for developing an effective yet efficient Quality Management System (QMS) for medical device companies.  This book is for anyone that feels frustrated by books that provide information on what must be accomplished in a QMS, but very little information on how to do it.  Medical Device Quality Management Systems explains how to create a vision, strategy, and tactical plans for a QMS.

Manz shares lessons on leadership and key roles and responsibilities within a medical device company.  Good quality and compliance results depend on all individuals and functions in an organization.  The ?Management Representative” and ?Management with Executive Responsibility” are critical roles.  This book provides context and guidance for those individuals.   Manz explores the concepts of process ownership, individual accountability, and a culture of quality and compliance.  This book is useful for all executive, functional leaders, and organizations to prepare them for working in the highly regulated medical device industry. Utilizing these concepts, a medical device company can make quality and compliance a competitive strength.
