Competing priorities within the lab can make it difficult to ensure your lab is always meeting regulatory and quality standards. Factor in inspection delays due to COVID-19 and your concerns may feel compounded. There is a solution, however, to meeting regulatory standards and achieving a more self-sustaining quality management system.
Why are Quality & Compliance Such a Challenge in Labs?
- Today’s environment presents particular challenges with labor shortages.
- Hospitals are under constant pressure to reduce costs; therefore, laboratories need to be able to meet regulatory burdens in a cost-effective manner.
- Having the right set of knowledge and skills are an essential part of implementing necessary processes to comply with often complex regulatory guidelines.
- Regardless of the environment, regulatory readiness must remain a priority at all times.
