R&Q's Blog

Medical device industry news and trends - and the resources to understand and act on them.


Same Road (Regulatory Pathway), Different Car (Medical Device)..Similar Success (Clearance,Approval)

As you might expect, here at RQS the responsibilities and duties of providing our clients with the support they need often involves traveling for on-site visits. For the time being, most of the travel takes place within the greater metropolitan area of the cities in which we currently have offices: Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Our Pittsburgh team makes rounds to their Pittsburgh-based clients and our Cleveland team makes rounds to their Cleveland-based clients. However, in order to best meet our clients’ needs, there is a fair bit of interchanging resources between our offices. Employees, some more than others, travel within the two metropolitan areas providing support to clients in both regions, as needed. Having been one of our Pittsburgh-based employees who has frequently traveled to Cleveland for client support, I thought I would use this blog post to reminisce on the journey.

Congenital Heart Walk

This weekend my family and I are going to go to the Congenital Heart Walk at 9:45 a.m. at the boathouse in North Park. This walk is to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects, America’s #1 birth defect. Regulatory and Quality Solutions is a sponsor of this event; it is very close to our hearts since it involves our esteemed friend and colleague, Deb Gimbel.

Labels impact the device

During this holiday season, when presents are being packaged and shipped at high volumes, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about the importance of labeling.

Innovative to the Bone

Last week, Regulatory and Quality Solutions participated in Cleveland Clinic’s 10th Annual Medical Innovation Summit – “Innovative to the Bone”!

It was our first year participating in the Summit, which brought together more than 1,100 executives, investors, entrepreneurs, and clinicians from around the world October 29th – October 31st.
