Data Integrity in the COVID-19 Era and Beyond
Part III: The Real-World
Costs of Data Integrity

A Three-Part FDAnews/CenterWatch Virtual Conference Series

Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020 • 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EDT


COVID-19 has spread across the globe and, in an effort to quell the pandemic, the FDA responded with guidelines to expedite effective treatments and devices. They’ve set new regulations meant to hasten the development and approval of products that could prevent, diagnose or treat the virus.

These guidelines, along with the Coronavirus Treatment Acceleration Program, Operation Warp Speed and growing public pressure, have rapidly pushed forward the process of finding solutions to this massive health crisis.

But this swift pace hasn’t absolved manufacturers and researchers of their long-held data integrity responsibilities. While the processes may be moving at a quicker pace, these standards remain steadfast.

Do you know what practices are best to create, maintain and archive your data? Is your team using data integrity concepts to increase productivity? How has your organization been using its risk management strategies when it comes to data?

This three-part FDAnews virtual conference has your answers.

This third session will cover best practices for the creation, maintenance and archiving of data and documents. It will help you increase productivity through effective data integrity practices and pull out the lessons COVID-19 is teaching us regarding data. You’ll learn how to apply ICH Q9 guidance, effective risk-management strategies and audit trails to approach data integrity concerns.

Data integrity expert Sue Schniepp will lead conversations and panels around data in the time of COVID-19. She and a group of experts will share tips and examples around data processes that will prepare you for inspection compliance and ensure your team is following best practices regarding data. The group will examine the unique risk mitigation steps that you can take to support the integrity of your data systems and answer your questions on this essential topic.
