QAtive is an independent company which operates internationally within the Health Care & Life Sciences industry. QAtive offers you services related to Quality Assurance, Process Optimization and Training. This webpage introduces you to the person behind QAtive.
QAtive was founded in September 2010 by Petra van der Bos.
Petra started her career in the pharmaceutical industry in the early nineties, as Biometrics Assistant for Roussel Uclaf in The Netherlands. In 1997 she made a move towards Clinical Operations. Till 2005 several positions with increasing responsibility (e.g. Clinical Research Associate, Clinical Research Manager, European Study Manager, Clinical Project Leader) were held, for all the successors of Roussel Uclaf (Hoechst Roussel, Hoechst Marion Roussel, Aventis and Sanofi-Aventis)
In 2005 she moved to Belgium and started working for Johnson & Johnson as a Global Trial Manager. Then in April 2007 she got the opportunity to join Movetis, J&J’s successful spin-off, fairly quick after its start-up. Petra’s major achievements for Movetis were:
Based on the experience gained over all these years, Petra founded QAtive in order to share this experience with different clients and to commit herself to the success of these clients.

In the much regulated industry of Health Care & Life Sciences Quality Assurance cannot absolutely guarantee you to produce quality products. However, via systemic monitoring and evaluation of various aspects of your project, service or facility you maximize the probability to attain minimum standards of quality.
Your success can result from implementing & maintaining a Quality Management System that is designed to continually improve performance while addressing the needs of all interested parties.
Petra has proven during her employment as QA Manager at Movetis that she was the right person to design and set-up a well-working Quality Management System, which enabled the company to be accepted by important pharmaceutical partners. Now that she started her independent company, she can be highly recommended to work on quality management projects for other companies as well. Petra has excellent knowledge about the Clinical QA processes and regulations, is pleasant to work with and brings added value to your company (October 26, 2010).
Process optimization is the discipline of adjusting your process in such a way as to optimize some specified set of parameters without violating some constraint. The most common goals are minimizing cost, maximizing throughput, and/or efficiency.
When optimizing a process, the goal is to maximize one or more of the process specifications, while keeping all others within their constraints.
Such a system is not only a big benefit in the content management of your critical business assets. It can also make life easier during IPO and/or alliance/cooperation due diligences.
Shortly after Movetis was founded, Petra was asked to design our Movetis' Electronic DOCument Management System (MEDOC). This system was deemed critical to keep a corporate memory, to reach the high standards required in document submission to Health Authorities and to use it as an internal alignment tool behind SOPs and operational strategies. In a hectically growing organisation and after three months this system was operational and enabled the company onwards to manage its business critical documents in a more consistent and audit trailed way. MEDOC played a crucial role in a number of company milestones including our filing of Resolor, our IPO process, several due diligences by pharma players and the eventual take-over by Shire Pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, Petra diligently created from scratch a robust, tailor-made Quality Management System reflecting the character of Movetis, a biotechnology company outsourcing most of its operational activities. Three internal audits and audits by external pharma partners confirmed the robustness of the QMS. During our cooperation, I got to know Petra as an honest, result driven, loyal and knowledgeable person (May 23, 2011).
Training is an important part of Quality Management. In every inspection the training curricula of your staff will be reviewed. Keep your staff up to date on regulations, your own company procedures, etc.
