Is Adopting a Quality Management System in Your Future?Friday, July 31, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET
This session will discuss new market and regulatory pressures that may be driving healthcare technology management departments to formally adopt a quality management system (QMS). We will review current QMS options and discuss the pros and cons of taking on this new burden/opportunity. The core of this session will share the journey of an independent servicing organization (ISO) through its own QMS adoption. This will include commentary on how the ISO QMS experience can be applied in the hospital-based healthcare technology management setting. The session will wrap up with a discussion among session participants on how adopting QMS may—or may not—fit in their world.
