MedAccred well received at the 2015 MPO Summit

19 October 2015

At the 2015 MPO Summit in Park City, Utah Joseph Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer – Performance Review Institute gave a presentation on the MedAccred program. He was joined via teleconference by Ken Stopar, Director of Supplier Quality at Baxter International, who provided an OEM perspective on the benefits of MedAccred.

The presentation took place on September 29 and included details of the MedAccred audit and accreditation process and how it is driving supplier quality excellence across the Medical Device Industry. The MPO presentation also discussed the benefits of participating in the MedAccred program to advance medical device quality and enhance purchasing controls, one of the top cited FDA-483 observations for medical device quality system violations.

Over one hundred delegates attended and the presentation was well received.  Joe Pinto commented, “MedAccred is a program that promises to significantly enhance the way the industry controls its critical process supply chain. As such, keeping the industry informed regarding MedAccred activity is vital, and the Medical Product Outsourcing conferences represent a great opportunity to do that.”
