Design and implement an organizational and documentary system

One of the tasks of the Quality Manager who works in a PMA center is to design, develop and improve the document system; document system means all the documentation (in paper or electronic format) used to give evidence of the registration of the activities provided by the center.

 All the accreditation and certification standards in the health sector require the presence of a document system, in fact in the various regulations there are more or less specific requirements that detail the documents that must be present. During the second module of the qualification course of the Quality Manager at a specialized structure these aspects will be dealt with in a systematic way, providing methodologies and operational tools for improving the document system.
