One reason life sciences companies hesitate to move to the cloud is they’re intimidated by computer system validation (CSV) in the cloud. MasterControl Validation Product Manager Erin Wright and Marianne Silva, the manager of quality and regulatory compliance at USC Clinical Laboratories, discuss how to simplify cloud validation and remain compliant.
People fear that in the cloud they’ll be in a constant state of validation and won’t be able to keep up with all the changes. What they don’t realize is that compliance as a whole is easier in the cloud. All documentation is at your fingertips regardless of location, simplifying inspections and audits. Additionally, many regulatory bodies are expecting life sciences companies to migrate to the cloud.
Marianne shares how extensive and time-consuming the test scripts were under the old validation process. That experience has completely changed now that her company uses a risk-based approach to validation based on their intended use of the software. Using the MasterContol Validation Excellence Tool (VxT)™, they’re able to cut significant time off their validation process.
