Cultivating a Proactive Quality Culture

Preventing patient risk is perhaps the most important goal for any pharmaceutical manufacturer. The quality of a drug substance or product is directly linked to where and how it’s made. As a result of the gravity of production, management must ensure that process variation is eliminated, consistent quality is guaranteed and there are no threats of defects that may potentially harm patients or interrupt supply. To assure quality, Servier takes a holistic approach, bringing people, process and policy together to create an efficient, agile QA/QC culture. 

Evolving Strategic Partnership Models

Pharmaceutical development is growing as the industry gains momentum in response to a broad range of market, regulatory and social trends globally. Advancing science, emerging markets and healthcare models are driving recent innovation and therapeutic success in the pharmaceutical sector, which has become increasingly dependent on partnerships across the supply chain. Collaboration is key to successfully responding to market demand – collaboration between both (bio)pharmaceutical companies and their service providers.
