On January 2, 2022 Norton Healthcare’s Clinical Engineering group became one of the first in-house HTM groups in the U.S. to achieve ISO 13485 certification. Come to learn how Norton Healthcare harnessed the internal and external forces of change to reshape their fragmented quality activities into a structured ISO-based quality management system. At this webinar, you will learn the “back story” of why Norton Healthcare Clinical Engineering chose to embark on its ISO journey. You’ll learn about the major components of ISO presented in everyday language, keys to successful launch, and the resources and organizational change management training employed to break through cultural barriers and increase acceptance of this structural change. ISO 13485 is more than policies, standardized procedures, and audits: it’s a system that reduces risk, improves service and customer satisfaction, improves team engagement, and can positively impact patient care. The webinar will prepare you to understand how a Quality Management System works and how Norton Healthcare adopted ISO 13485 to get there.
