Using Analytics to Plan Internal Quality Management System Audits

Preliminary risk assessment (e.g., Likelihood X Impact) and the results of previous audits (e.g., number of NCs) are often used to help prioritize the audit schedule.

How the FDA interprets advertising and promotion in principle and in fact

If you go "off label" with advertising and promotion, FDA's hammer can hit hard and seemingly out of the blue. Advertising and promotion for devices is weak and lacks legal clarity. For drugs, the regulations are prescriptive and guidance documents clamp down on nuances. Marketing and regulatory affairs departments must collaborate to avoid the hammer and penalties of FDA. The roadblock, however is that marketing managers and regulatory affairs managers rarely reach common ground and are…

How to Email and Text in the World of HIPAA

One errant email or text message can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in HIPAA fines and penalties and it doesn't matter who you're communicating with: patients, staff, providers or with insurance carriers.

A violation is a violation. And if you think it couldn't happen to you, think again. Text and email HIPAA violations are not always caused by what you might think. For example, you may think you are safe as long as you don't text patients - you're wrong.…
