Effective and compliant computer system data management is critical to organizations in the pharmaceutical, biologics, vaccines, tobacco, animal health, medical device or other FDA-regulated industry. During the past 30 years, best practices have been developed to ensure computer systems used in these environments can be cost-effectively managed while meeting all aspects of FDA compliance. To take this a step further, we are now looking at ways to ensure the data that resides on these systems is also managed in a compliant manner and one that will provide the best results for operations at the lowest cost.
After attending this course, you will understand data governance as a quality control discipline for assessing, managing, using, improving, monitoring, maintaining, and protecting organizational information. It is a system of decision rights and accountabilities for information-related processes, executed according to agreed-upon models which describe who can take what actions with what information, and when, under what circumstances, and, finally, using what methods.
Upon completion of this session, attendees will have an understanding of how to:
Anyone involved with activities related to data that is subject to inspection, audit or review by FDA should attend the webinar to learn how to do so in a way that ensures the integrity of the data is maintained throughout its entire life cycle. Currently, FDA trends in compliance and enforcement indicate a high percentage of data integrity issues in their typical audit and inspection findings. This is a key area that FDA is focused on, and should be of interest to those who want to avoid negative findings during such an audit or inspection of their regulated activities.
The attendees will have a good grasp of how to leverage the best practices across all systems by creating a standardized program for data governance.
This webinar will cover the following key areas:
Anyone who is involved in the development, testing, manufacturing, storage, handling and distribution of product must understand and conform to FDA requirements for data quality and integrity.
Finally, anyone who is developing and maintaining software used in these industries should be aware of the requirements for data integrity for their systems.
