Visions of digital future

News • 10.10.2017

DRA’s expert Hanna Saari talked at the Regulatory Affairs seminar (Myyntilupaseminaari) held on 3 October 2017 about pharmaceutical sector’s digital future. She presented some visions about how various IT system projects will affect everyday activities at pharmaceutical companies and regulatory authorities and routines for patients.

Topics in Hanna’s presentation included:

  • Serialisation and opportunities brought by the code to be placed on packaging;
  • SPOR, compatibility of IT systems, and data storages;
  • Authority interface and robotics;
  • eCTD 4.0;
  • Electronic product information;
  • Possibilities of the Kanta database.

Hanna’s presentation was widely thanked and it aroused discussion and interest among representatives of both the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory authority. The message was not to warn about the digital change, but to urge people to boldly consider it as an opportunity.
