The Center of Excellence will host its virtual conference for current and future outsourcing facilities, regulators, and other compounding experts. Stakeholders can collaborate on key topics and best practices.

Fagron Quality Directors to participate in 503B Panel Discussion  

We are pleased to announce Fagron’s Global Quality Director, Jason McGuire, and Quality Assurance Director, Josh Parks, will participate as panelists at 2021 Compounding Quality Center of Excellence Virtual Conference: Culture of Quality. Quality is one of the core values at Fagron Sterile Services. Jason and Josh have played a key role in developing quality centric and customer focused culture at Fagron Sterile Services.

“When you establish a culture of quality in an organization you create a sense of ownership for every employee. Therefore, from start to finish every person feels responsible and accountable to ensure the finished product meets the highest standards and every requirement before leaving the facility,” Jason said.   

Jason will be part of the Cross-Sector Panel discussion on Outsourcing Facilities and Purchasers. Participants will have an opportunity to listen in to perspectives from a panel of outsourcing facilities, health-systems, GPOs and physician specialty groups as they discuss opportunities and challenges for outsourcing facilities, including Fagron Sterile Services, and their supply chain and healthcare partners. The panel will focus on the purchaser environment and how they exist in the ecosystem and how that influences Outsourcing Facilities. This session will be held in the format of a moderated panel, and the questions for the panel will be structured and pre-planned.

Josh will participate in What to Expect on a 503B Inspection – From Initiation to Closeout and shared he is “looking forward to participating on this panel because it brings the FDA and industry leaders together to have a collaborative discussion that will help better prepare participants for an audit and then perform to meet the FDA's expectations.”
