An End-to-End Approach to Compliance in Life Sciences

Life Sciences Review, March 2021

“In the EU, while regulations are meant for ensuring patients’ safety by adding more conformance requirements, they have severely compromised the Life Sciences industry’s quest to push the boundaries of innovation,” says Alethea Wieland, the President and Founder of Clinical Research Strategies.

According to a study published by Deloitte, “Globalization, alliances and partnerships, heightened transparency expectations, increased emphasis on innovative technologies, and ever-evolving needs for existing and emerging customers are driving them to re-examine their approach to compliance.”

As such, identifying, analyzing, and mitigating compliance risks have evolved into a fundamental prerequisite for Life Sciences companies in developing an effective strategy to help future-proof their business. However, keeping up the innovation pace with this regulatory landscape will no longer be an easy task, especially for startups and mid-sized organizations.
