3/22/2013 1:20:00 PM

Tampa, FL – March 22, 2013 -- Pilgrim Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of Enterprise Quality and Compliance Management software solutions, today announced that Deborah Kacera, Regulatory & Industry Strategist for Pilgrim, has joined an exclusive panel of presenters at FDAnews’ virtual conference, “Complaint Handling Violations for Device Companies – The #1 Warning Letter.” During the conference, March 28, Kacera will present best practices for implementing an electronic medical device adverse event reporting (eMDR) program.

Per FDA guidelines Medical Device companies are required to establish complaint-handling procedures to detect, evaluate and appropriately address possible product-related problems. For the manufacturer, effective complaint handling is a complex and time-consuming process that integrates data collection, evaluation and risk assessment. eMDR is an effective reporting mechanism for handling complaints. Kacera’s presentation will examine the eMDR implementation process and how to benefit from eMDR.

“eMDR is an incredibly useful tool to help your company more effectively handle complaint reporting,” Kacera said. “Proper knowledge and planning will save your company’s valuable resources, time and frustration. If a company correctly implements an eMDR process, it can be one of the front-line defenses against serious complaint system weaknesses.” The FDAnews virtual conference will be held Thursday, March 28, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EDT and features four back-to-back sessions dedicated to complaint handling and best practices for running the complaint department.
