Overcoming the Industry Data Crisis




The amount of data generated around the world is growing exponentially and at rates that are so great they are difficult to grasp. By one calculation, 90% of the world’s data have been generated over the last two years (1). To put it in terms used by the International Data Corporation in its estimates: by 2025, the global datasphere will reach 175 zettabytes − the equivalent of 175 trillion gigabytes (2).

With data from the newest technologies, applications, devices, and wearables all contributing, the sheer breadth of available information in clinical research is staggering, and its potential for contributing positively to modernisation is virtually limitless. The pharmaceutical industry has progressively accepted electronic data capture (EDC) as the standard practice for clinical trials. Overall, the adoption of EDC has resulted in some improvement across the industry − relative to antiquated paper processes − but EDC still largely relies on paper-based source documents (3).

Future-proofing serialization solutions: the importance of strong level 3 capabilities

Adents

The complexities surrounding product serialization for pharmaceutical and medical device companies are immense. While current serialization requirements are limited to marking the unit of sale with a unique data carrier, by 2023 the process will require a product to be traceable through the entirety of its journey - from the individual package through the carton/pallet to its final point of distribution. In the United States, the Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA) is suggesting that pharmaceutical companies begin to support this level of serialization, called aggregation, now. Around the world – in Europe and Asia in particular – disparate track and trace practices are incrementally moving toward a global standard that will, undoubtedly, be more stringent than today’s differing benchmarks. How can companies manage this transformation with the greatest degree of success while also minimizing business disruption? The key to creating an optimal implementation strategy is to select a serialization solution that has strong capabilities at all levels of technology. It’s also important to choose a solution that enables multi-phase implementation
