Recently in our conversations with sponsors, we’ve seen a significant uptick in clients using electronic means beyond just storage on hard drives to manage their documents. That’s a wonderful thing to see and we’re thrilled. In this age of purely electronic assets and required electronic only communication with global health authorities, to see an increasing number of life sciences sponsor organizations recognizing the need to manage their electronic documents and treat them like to assets they truly are is a significant development within the life sciences industry.
We do, however, see a significant amount of confusion about what the various types of electronic systems available are and what they’re best suited to do, as well as what requirements (both practical and legal) each of those types of systems meet.
