3. Importance of Quality Metrics: A Review
Sneha Mary Abraham, N Vishal Gupta
“Quality metric” is the measure of the effectiveness of systems associated with the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, including the pharmaceutical quality system. This is widely used in industry and they are potentially used to reduce drug shortages and it is the common language to gauge progress around quality. Quality Metric may include elements such as customer satisfaction, supplier performance, manufacturing defects, complaints and many other internal and external processes. It should focus on effectiveness and measure that the right things are being done correctly. Quality Metrics are difficult to establish but provide excellent insight into the health of the quality system ,the use of quality metric data leads to further development of FDA’S risk based inspection schedule and to identify situations in which there may be a risk for drug supply disruption, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of establishment inspections, to also improve FDA’S evaluation of drug manufacturing and control operations. It can be used to assist segment sites for risk based inspection schedule and also assist to segment product and individual product manufacturer based on risk. The key points in quality metrics are keep it simple, improve objectively and segmenting sites/products and also evaluating quality systems. Share the quality goals across the organisation and establish quality performance metrics based on linkage to organisational objective
