SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Sep 7, 2016) - MasterControl, the leading global provider of electronic quality management systems (EQMS) and quality consulting services, continues to showcase its innovation for the life science industry with the launch of a new e-book, "Convergence of Compliance & Technology." The enhanced e-book, which includes illustrations and a video, can be accessed for free here: http://www.mastercontrol.com/ebook/convergence.html?source=pr-sb5.
"In a world of rapid change and information overload, especially in the life science industry, it is important to take a step back and to gain perspective on how the industry has evolved, where it is and where it is headed," said Matt Lowe, executive vice president of MasterControl and author of "Convergence of Compliance & Technology." This e-book is not only a reflection of the life science industry in general, but also of the software development business.
The book demonstrates how the use of technology in the past decade has assisted both regulated companies and regulatory agencies in easing the pains of delivering products to patients and consumers globally. Regulatory initiatives enforced by the FDA helped define the e-book's scope. It consists of seven chapters tracing key developments that revolutionized regulatory compliance for life science companies, such as 21 CFR Part 11 and 16 other important milestones.
"The life science industry should expect more technology-facilitated regulations in the future," said Lowe, a mechanical engineer with over 15 years of medical device experience in product development, product management, and regulatory compliance. "If success depends on preparation, then it behooves life science companies to prepare for an even more technology-driven regulatory landscape in the future." His book explains the need for "smarter compliance" and offers practical recommendations for achieving it.
