Digital Evidence Webinar

FDA Discusses the Use of Digital Evidence to Accelerate Innovation

A Straight from the Source Webinar

FDA is encouraging the use of “Digital Evidence to accelerate product innovation supporting rapid introduction of life-saving technology for patients “Digital evidence” is already being used at FDA to predict clinical outcomes, inform clinical trial design, support demonstration of safety and effectiveness, identify relevant patient populations, and support regulatory submissions. 

Join FDA’s Tina M. Morrison and Axendia’s Daniel R. Matlis for a live webinar on July 10 at 11:00 AM ET. 

We will discuss FDA’s perspective on: 

  • Shifting from traditional evidence sources to digital and real world evidence  
  • Modeling and Simulation to support improved quality and patient outcomes 
  • Examples of Digital Evidence currently in use at FDA 
  • The Review of the Futureharnessing the power digital and real world evidence through digital transformation

FDA Answers Your Questions on the New Approach to CSV

Q&A from an Axendia Straight from the Source (SftS) Webinar

By: Francisco Vicenty, FDA, CDRH and Daniel R. Matlis, Axendia, President

In our recent webinar, we discussed FDA’s perspective on Computer Software Assurance (CSA).  FDA has recognized that existing perceptions and approaches to computer system validation (CSV) are a significant barrier to improving digital capability, product quality, and patient safety and is working swiftly to reverse this trend.

In this “Straight from the Source” webinar, we discussed FDA’s perspective on CSA including:

  • FDA’s upcoming Guidance on CSA for Manufacturing, Operations, and Quality System Software
  • Applying critical thinking and risk-based principles to support technology modernization
  • Identifying Acceptable Records of Assurance
  • Leveraging CSA to accelerate digital transformation

There were many more questions submitted than could be answered in the time allotted.

FDA is Enabling Innovation and Modernization

By: Thomas O’Connor, Sr. Chemical Engineer, US FDA

FDA is committed to supporting and enabling pharmaceutical innovation and modernization as part of the Agency’s mission to protect and promote public health. FDA recognizes that continuous manufacturing is an emerging technology that can enable pharmaceutical modernization and deliver potential benefits to both industry and patients. Continuous manufacturing can improve pharmaceutical manufacturing by, for example, using an integrated process with fewer steps and shorter processing times; requiring a smaller equipment footprint; supporting an enhanced development approach (e.g., quality by design (QbD) and use of process analytical technology (PAT) and models); enabling real-time product quality monitoring; and providing flexible operation to allow scale-up, scale-down, and scale-out to accommodate changing supply demands.

eBook: Goodbye Computer System Validation…

Hello Computer System Assurance (CSA)!

By: Daniel R. Matlis, President and Ellyn McMullin, Research Associate

FDA supports and encourages the use of automation systems and digital technologies throughout the product lifecycle to improve patient outcomes and reduce the risk to patients. It is a common misconception that extensive testing and documentation is required to demonstrate the validation of computer software used in automation.

The FDA, recognizing industries CSV challenges, has announced new guidance on “Computer Software Assurance for Manufacturing, Operations and Quality System Software.” This guidance is on the Agency’s “A-list” and is planned for release in FY 2019.

The content is this eBook represents Axendia’s analysis and opinions on “Computer Software Assurance for Manufacturing, Operations, and Quality System Software” based on the following trusted sources:

  • Axendia’s interaction with FDA representatives on this topic
  • Content and material sourced from FDA
  • First-hand experience from Axendia’s clients on the implementation of CSA

Register to receive this eBook, sponsored by Sparta Systems, and learn:

  • Why Critical Thinking is the Foundation of CSA
  • How to Implement a Risk-Based Approach to CSA
  • The Objectives of CSA
  • What the CSA Landscape Looks Like
  • Acceptable Levels of Assurance

Webinar also now available on-demand:  Understanding the FDA’s New Approach to Computer System Validation.
