Highlights from the Regulatory Track at the 2020 Veeva R&D Summit, Europe

Although we missed the chance to connect with each other in person, the virtual 2020 Veeva R&D Summit, Europe enabled a significantly higher number of life sciences professionals to participate in this year’s conference. Over the course of three days, more than 1,600 people joined to hear from industry leaders, see live demos, discuss best practices with peers, and access the latest product roadmaps.

In the regulatory track, Lars Westergaard Luxøj and Michael Buch-Hansen from Novo Nordisk spoke about how they are accelerating the rollout of Vault Submissions and Vault Submissions Archive with an agile delivery approach. Through this initiative they developed a minimum viable product and retired old, homegrown systems in exchange for the industry best practices built into Vault RIM. Novo Nordisk is also running automated validations every night to optimize their efforts.

On the second day of the Summit, Aurélie Becquet from Ipsen shared her experience implementing Vault Registrations as a single source of truth across the organization. She summarized several lessons learned for regulatory teams embarking on their own RIM journey including how to set up a robust program management office.

Veeva also welcomed back James Hendry from GE Healthcare, who provided an update on how his team continues to streamline cross-functional processes since going live with Vault RIM in January 2019. Hendry highlighted how to get project buy-in, educate affiliates on using the system, and leverage KPIs to quantify positive outcomes while identifying areas for improvement.

In addition to the customer presentations, Veeva’s regulatory product management team gave attendees a view into current and future release cycles. Kate Wilber showed how Veeva is improving the user experience for managing registered details, registration history, and registration data verification. In the coming quarters, the team will continue to evolve Vault RIM functionality to align with IDMP. Uri Reich and Rich Merrick shared several enhancements to the RIM ecosystem, including the new submission content plan viewer, additional eCTD and non-eCTD publishing capabilities, and expanded support for companies with medical devices and diagnostics.
