Pilgrim's progress at CDC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will adopt Pilgrim Software's automated platform for document management and compliance, the company has announced.

CDC will use the Pilgrim products for document control, complaints and corrective and preventive action (CAPA) systems management throughout the Laboratory Response Network, which is part of the bioterrorism preparedness and response division.

The CDC will use Pilgrim's SmartCAPA, a Web-based application that lets users start an investigation, resolve a problem and prevent a reoccurrence, Pilgrim said. SmartCAPA will work with the CDC's internal LRN Web site, which holds records of complaints and product deviations.

Another Pilgrim product, SmartDoc, will automate the review, approval and change management of controlled documents used on the LRN.
