Data mapping and data flows

A key challenge in health data processing is understanding the data flow from the point of collection to the moment it is hosted and stored. This step is critical for compliance with EU regulations and also presents an opportunity to clearly define and control the access to health data by various parties involved.

QA Documentation

To comply with EU regulations, entities must be able to demonstrate that they have taken the requisite steps towards compliance. This involves the implementation of data privacy policies, establishing protocols for data breaches, creating data subject request forms, and maintaining records of processing activities.

Third Party Management

Life sciences companies frequently engage a variety of vendors, including CROs, laboratories, and imaging facilities, to conduct research activities. This reliance on multiple vendors exposes companies to potential data security risks. As accountable entities, these companies have the obligation to vet and audit these vendors to ensure the security and integrity of the data being handled.
