CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Biopharmaceutical and medical device companies allocate a significant amount of resources to ensure their products meet quality standards at every stage of the product lifecycle.

Inherent in this challenging endeavor is the balancing act between managing costs and product quality while adding value for patients and healthcare providers. This environment creates a constant focus on ensuring that a quality group is efficient, effective and adding value for patients, physicians and other stakeholders.

Best Practices, LLC undertook benchmarking research to probe how quality organizations can move beyond simply ensuring product safety and compliance and deliver value. "
