As a comprehensive solution, CATSWeb Complaints Management & Regulatory Reporting system offers the following key features that are built-in, right out of the box, such as:
BUILT-IN BUSINESS PERFORMANCE METRICS/MANAGEMENT DASHBOARDS:

BEST PRACTICES WORKFLOW:
AssurX has simplified and streamlined an end-to-end workflow for processing all events intake, reportable and nonreportable. In addition, unlimited best practices workflows may be added, and modifications to existing template workflows can be easily done with point-and-click configuration.
INTEGRATION WITH OTHER PROCESSES:
The Complaints Management system can also be integrated and cross-queried with many of the other built-in quality processes that come with CATSWeb, such as audits, CAPAs, issue tracking and change management.
AUDIT TRAIL, ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES:
Audit trail and electronic signatures are compliant with the FDA's 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. Edit changes to entire records, not just the field changes, are viewable and fully queryable.
REPORTABILITY EVALUATION & REGULATORY REPORTS:
Decision-tree process automates the evaluation requirements for the United States, Canada, Europe and Australian regulatory bodies, and generates the appropriate electronic forms (MedWatch 3500s, etc.) and follow-up/supplemental reports as well.
According to Eric Cooper, Director of Business Development, AssurX, Inc., "We designed the complaint handling and regulatory reporting system in a way to help medical device companies streamline their process.
