How To Assess And Mitigate Risk With Your Regulated IT Systems

In the life sciences industry, many of the software systems we use must comply with federal regulations. The purpose of these regulations, such as U.S. FDA 21 CFR Part 11, is to ensure that the data being housed and produced by these software systems is accurate and trustworthy.

Trends in Governance: Look Beyond Compliance, Risk and Analytics

Governance historically has been instituted to support regulatory and compliance needs as well as requirements from business intelligence and analytics.

Governance is therefore starting to focus more and […]

Healthcare Governance: Trends to Watch

Governance in healthcare organizations is undergoing somewhat of a resurgence or rebirth as the industry begins to recognize not only the value of governance, but that it is a critical component of the organization.

Governance Program: Watch What You Are Doing – Everyone Else Is

If you recall, in my last post I talked about communications and how it is a critical element for a successful program.

Governance Program Offerings – What “Stuff” Does it Produce?

If you’ve been following along with my blog series, you know that Governance is responsible for setting the framework within which information management decisions are made. This framework is not only clarifying who does what (decision rights, processes, etc.), but also the “bumpers” to keep everything under control (rules, policies, controls, etc.). All of these […]
