Regulatory compliance is more complex and crucial than ever, and organizations are under immense pressure to manage their regulatory information efficiently. In addition, the stakes have increased as health authorities responding to public pressure have become increasingly rigorous in their evaluations, issuing more fines and penalties than ever. The health authorities are also striving to standardize data submissions in ways that organizations may not be ready to meet.

Common Regulatory Challenges

Organizations face numerous immediate challenges in managing regulatory information:

  • High volume of data and documents
  • Data fragmentation over time and platforms
  • Adherence to evolving standards
  • Inefficient processes across teams
  • Compliance risks
  • Legacy systems being consolidated into new platforms
  • Frequent RIM platform updates to stay current with complex and changing regulatory environments from multiple Health Authorities worldwide

As companies grow, merge, and acquire new data, many struggle to maintain operational efficiency and ensure compliance with mission-critical global regulatory requirements.

Modern Platforms: A Double-edged SaaS

There’s no question that today’s cloud-connected SaaS solution platforms are a fantastic leap forward in technology. Unfortunately, their undeniable benefits also come with their own challenges that IT teams need to be prepared to address.

For example, today’s leading platform in regulatory information management Veeva introduces three product releases per year where the RIM Vault is enhanced with new features. Compared to historic on-prem solutions that started to become out of date the month after purchase, this is a fantastic capability. The challenge now is that new features, bug fixes, and enhancements are automatically turned on and/or configurable and have a critical go-live date regardless of whether the organization is ready. The volume of changes can be significant, and some organizations fall behind in implementing the configurable features. In addition, many configurable features are not immediately beneficial but are utilized to build a foundation for future innovations that provide additional efficiencies.

Security can be another significant challenge. An overly complex security scheme can stunt the utilization of the solution, preventing the use of features and functionality intended to provide significant user efficiency. A properly configured and maintained RIM solution should allow all its users to easily find the information necessary to complete current Regulatory tasks. Often, during solution implementations, an organization will try to configure a security scheme that is far too granular, complex, and not conducive to efficient collaboration. The overly complex security will cause frustration and loss of user adoption of the solution. It can also cause burdensome administrative overhead and limit the available scope of change requests from the user community.
