Quality Assurance is the backbone of the Quality Management System. They believe that focus on quality starts from laying a strong foundation of robust Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) which comply with all the applicable regulations, guidelines and standards. At DiagnoSearch, quality is everybody’s responsibility with an emphasis on ‘Right the First Time’ approach. The Quality Assurance (QA) Team at DiagnoSearch is independent of all functions. QA is involved in maintaining efficient and compliant SOPs including the ones required for accreditation standards. It is instrumental in conducting training programs and workshops to enhance learning. Internal Audits conducted by the QA Team at DiagnoSearch verify compliance with SOPs and documented project specific requirements to identify any noncompliance, assess root cause, implement Corrective And Preventive Actions (CAPA) and identify opportunities for quality improvement. The Internal Audits and Investigator Site Audits conducted by the QA Team contribute towards the identification of trends and unforeseen potential risks, which are integrated into the project specific Risk Management Plan, along with mitigation strategies.
