Quality Management Services
We assist life sciences and healthcare professionals with a vast service offering that will support them in improving the quality of their services.
Quality is an increasing concern for the LSHC sector. Life Sciences companies and research institutes are facing stricter European and global regulations which limit the advances of R&D whilst increasing costs. The new Directive 2011/24/EU on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare and its transposition into national law aims to preserve and promote the quality of healthcare. Healthcare providers are requested to optimise services and adjust to cost constraints while maximising quality.
These changes create an increasingly competitive environment that requires Luxembourg’s life sciences industry to have a well-defined two- to three-year strategic plan and underlying roadmap in order to be able to adapt to the changes enforced by the regulators.
Quality is becoming a key differentiator and full compliance with the ISO 9000 and EFQM standards is increasingly important, as is the need for a well-considered and comprehensive performance management and monitoring strategy, and the need for integrating qualitative and quantitative indicators.
