qtec TrendReport – a service for your organization

Trend reporting in accordance with Art. 88 of the MDR is growing in importance. The FDA, government authorities and notified bodies are increasingly focusing on the reporting of trends. As experts in the field, we have developed a service that handles the entire creation of audit-compliant trend reports for manufacturers of medical devices.

Full service for the reporting of trends in accordance with Art. 88 of the MDR

Trend reporting is an art. Surveys have shown that most companies create these reports using Excel spreadsheets and spend between 25 and 100 person-hours per month on this task, depending on the product portfolio. But there is another way: with our TrendReport service, we offer you a convenient and cost-effective option that also provides additional benefits.

"Imagine you hand over your data set to a service provider and shortly afterwards, you receive a meaningful and easy-to-understand report on the statistically significant trends, together with an overview of the potential causes and a visualization of the data. And this is done monthly, on a date agreed with you."

Dr. Hans-Joachim Graf, Managing Director

How TrendReport works:

  • for each analysis, we apply several suitable statistical methods to ensure trends are detected and both false-positive and false-negative trend notifications are effectively suppressed based on the data structures.
  • We use validated software tools to facilitate the effective and efficient processing of large amounts of unsorted data.
  • We can customize key evaluation metrics, such as evaluation periods, significance level and sample size, depending on the specific characteristics of our customers’ products.
  • of course, we also take sales figures and the accumulated installed base into account when calculating trends.
  • We are also able to find trends that are created through a combination of different characteristics (e.g. a specific product in a specific target market).

„Our evaluations also enable us to extract information on non-reportable early trend indicators, which allow you to address any emerging issues head-on, without having to submit a report straight away.”
Dr. Hans-Joachim Graf,
Managing Director

Improve quality through data analysis

TrendReport can do more than just provide you with compliant reports. The skillful combination of data sets has already allowed us to successfully identify problems and find sources of error in the manufacture of medical devices. As a result, TrendReport enables us to detect quality issues for our customers that would otherwise be impossible to identify.

Using a concrete example, data analysis allowed us to identify a production problem at a plant in Spain for an international medical device manufacturer – before the customer was able to do so themselves. The manufacturer was then able to target the issue effectively.

„Finally, a product that really saves you time and effort!”
