Chapter Dinner- Crisis Averted!

Crisis Averted! Preventing and Managing Disruptive Compliance Challenges

Medical device and diagnostic organizations are often faced with disruptive events that take dedicated leadership to achieve successful outcomes. Warning letters, consent decrees, product recalls, regulatory inspections, and supply chain disruptions require immediate attention, and delays can be costly. In medical technology, these crises have the potential to upend operations, financial metrics, and reputations. Your response can be the difference between mitigation and disaster.

We will talk through best practices to handle disruptive events that may distract your organization from its day-to-day business. The conversation will provide real-world experiences, advice, and strategies to help guide you on the path to minimizing the impact of crises that are inevitable in these industries.

Join us as we explore how to prevent the disruptive events you can and quickly and effectively respond to the ones you can’t.

  • Minimizing compliance risks through enhanced organizational approaches (culture, processes, systems)
  • Managing compliance issues to prevent business crises
  • Managing crisis events when they occur
  • Leading remediation programs
  • Learning from non-compliance experiences to drive continuous improvement
