Customer complaints and regulatory reporting are an inevitable part of the regulated industry. When it occurs, you should be able to document the problem quickly and clearly that can be assessed for regulatory reporting.
With Qualityze complaints management software system, this can be achieved by completing the Initiation steps. Within the Initiation step, you can capture key information such as:
- Complaint Description and complaint Code
- Occurrence Date
- Aware Date
- Patient Information
- Hospital Information
- Product Information
- Reported Date
- Reported By
- Complaint Owner and Others
Besides this information, you have an option to create additional custom fields to capture information that your business needs. Once the record is saved, a unique number will be assigned by the system for you to keep track of the customer complaints.
Root Cause Investigation
The root cause investigation of a complaint plays a very important role in the functioning of the complaint system. The extent of the investigation depends on the several criteria such as criticality, a risk to the patient or end user, the risk to the company, extent of the defect, etc.
In Qualityze, you use the combination of different tasks to document the investigation result or outcome. You can perform two types of investigation to identify the cause: Customer Investigation and Product Investigation. The flexibility of the system allows you to document multiple root causes. Additionally, you can also document the results of the investigation.
Customer Investigation is related to the information that you want to collect for understanding the root cause. Product Investigation is performed internally to check for any existing nonconformance during the manufacturing process that may have contributed to the complaint.
Managing Customer Response
Customer Response is an activity that an organization uses to respond to a customer who has filed a formal complaint about the products or services. Timely response to the customer is very critical to show an organization’s commitment to resolve the issue.
In Qualityze, you can generate a customer letter with using a predefined response template. You also have an option to update or change the template based on your organization’s requirement. Having a template provides a format, structure, and style that can be used to write a formal response to a customer complaint.
Regulatory Reporting and Submission
Some of the complaints need to be reported to the regulatory agency of the country where the incident occurred. There is always a specific timeframe that needs to be followed to complete the regulatory reporting and submission. The determination of reportable event and a timeline is based on the outcome of a decision tree.
With Qualityze complaints management software, you can create your decision tree based on the region for the complaint’s management. For a reportable event/incident, the system auto-generates a task with a timeframe auto-calculated by the system. Using the pre-configured forms provided by FDA (MedWatch FDA MDR 3500), European Medical Devices Directive (93/42/EEC) (MEDDEV 2.12-1), Health Canada (MDPR), Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) etc., you can quickly and promptly generate the submission report.
