Automatic quality control application to potentially reduce timelines by a third
The new application from the contract research organization (CRO), MMS holdings, automatically performs quality control and style checks medical writing, pharmacovigilance, and other documents.
Michelle Gayari, executive director of Global Operations for MMS said in a statement that the company designed this application to improve the quality control process for everyone. “Quality control is the final step before release of a document to regulators or the external environment and this efficiency allows us to be nimble to adapt to last-minute document changes,” she explained.
According to MMS Holdings, Auotmatiqc can reduce quality control time by up to 33% percent, reducing the amount of time needed to perform quality checks and enables teams to meet deadlines. The application is customizable and enable users to tailor the software to specific style guides.
Kristin Chesney, senior operations and quality specialist at MMS, noted that quality control reviewers may need to check hundreds of style points in a document, and said the application provides assurance that every point is checked in every document. “Manual quality control by different reviewers is prone to subjectivity and error – even with established guides,” she added in a statement.
Automaticq can be used in any Microsoft Word-based document type enabling it to be incorporated into a medical writer’s workflow.
