Welcome from the Chair
There are many different sectors that can be considered part of or associated with the "Healthcare" Industry: Direct patient care, Diagnostics, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Device, Insurance, Surveillance, Compliance, Regulatory & Accreditation, etc.. Regardless of your profession we all have one thing in common - the patient. Quality has to be at the core of what we do every day. Quality concepts and tools can help us to work more effectively and efficiently.
We want to help you connect, learn, and grow personally and professionally. I invite you to get involved, participate in the discussions and events, and review articles in our Healthcare Body of Knowledge (HBOK).
Let us know how we can best serve you.
ASQ Healthcare Division Chair
Is anyone in the medical and pharmaceutical industries interested in discussing the practices, policies, and political leanings of the FDA in approving the use of generic drugs in the absence of maintaining quality standards for manufacture, evaluation/assessment, and use? Please refer to Katherine Eban's book, Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom for further information regarding ways in which patient safety took a second seat to profit.
