Electronic Records: Effective Approaches that Reduce Costs By David Nettleton

Course Description
Nearly every computerized system used in laboratory, clinical, manufacturing settings and in the quality process has to be validated. Finding efficiencies without weakening the quality position is essential. This interactive two-day course explores proven techniques for reducing costs associated with implementing, using, and maintaining computer systems in regulated environments. Attendees will learn how to decrease software implementation time and lower costs using a 10-step risk-based approach to computer system validation.
The instructor addresses the latest computer system industry standards for data security, data transfer, and audit trails. Attendees will see how 21 CFR Part 11, the FDA regulation pertaining to use of electronic records and signatures, and the HIPAA electronic security regulations for patient medical records fit into the validation process. Finally, the instructor will review recent FDA inspection trends and discusses how to streamline SOP authoring, revision, review, and approval.
This course benefits anyone that uses computer systems to perform their job functions and is ideal for regulatory, clinical, and IT professionals working in the health care, clinical trial, biopharmaceutical, and medical device sectors.
