Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPAs) are an integral process of any good Quality Management System (QMS). They are used to identify actions that may either correct an identified root cause or prevent that cause from happening. The objectives of tracking CAPAs are to provide a mechanism for minimizing risk of harm (fixing an existing root cause) or to drive continuous improvement, which is a cornerstone objective of QMSs as a whole.
This application provides a digital way to manage this process consistently so that you can spend your time focusing on improving your risk profile or QMS effectiveness as a whole. With all your data in digital format you can easily view historical and current records in order to evaluate and manage the effectiveness of your CAPA process and focus on continuous improvement.

This applications works closely with the CAPAs table. Every time a new CAPA is submitted, it is entered into the table. The following metadata stored with each event at the conclusion of the entire workflow includes:
-Linked Quality Event
-Evidence of Completion (text)
-Evidence of Completion (photo)
-Root Cause Description
The application has a pre-defined workflow that guides an event through pre-configured screens in order to move the event through the following states:
