During my early years, I was overwhelmed by so many trainings, SOPs, and processes. Only after my later years, I learned what quality is really about. Gary fundamentally helped me and many others have a very different and more insightful/helpful/easy perspective on this topic.

Listen and learn while we talk about the following points:
  • During your first years in the industry – how did you think about quality? What did it mean to you?
  • What are the key parts of quality today for you?
  • How does this understanding of quality differ from being compliant to SOPs?
  • Have you seen an example where a person was compliant to SOPs but didn’t deliver quality?
  • How can we increase quality as defined in this episode in our organization?

I want to help the community of statisticians, data scientists, programmers and other quantitative scientists to be more influential, innovative, and effective. I believe that as a community we can help our research, our regulatory and payer systems, and ultimately physicians and patients take better decisions based on better evidence.

I work to achieve a future in which everyone can access the right evidence in the right format at the right time to make sound decisions.

When my kids are sick, I want to have good evidence to discuss with the physician about the different therapy choices.

When my mother is sick, I want her to understand the evidence and being able to understand it.

When I get sick, I want to find evidence that I can trust and that helps me to have meaningful discussions with my healthcare professionals.

I want to live in a world, where the media reports correctly about medical evidence and in which society distinguishes between fake evidence and real evidence.

Let’s work together to achieve this.
