In this episode of RCA Radio, host Erika Porcelli and guest Steve Cox, a Regulatory Compliance Associates (RCA) Senior Consultant, cover the business strategy of outsourcing surveillance activities in both the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Not recognized as a business strategy until the late 1980s, outsourcing is now looked at as a strategic partnership for businesses, growing increasingly in the U.S. with many key considerations at play.

Listen in as we discuss a brief history of outsourcing and its impact on the U.S. labor market, functions primary to an outsourcing strategy and the traits they share, the steps and timeline necessary to outsource a workflow, the pros and cons to this strategy, potential change paradigms that could arise, and regulatory considerations.
