What is RIMS?
RIMS is a system that facilitates and supports business processes for the collection, organization (planning), storage and communication of regulatory information.
Regulatory Information plays an increasingly important role in the life science industry.
It allows for complete portfolio oversight, details of individual products, including changes, as well as interaction with authorities and third parties.
For pharmaceutical companies, RIMS should play a major role in
providing the right information
in the right format
at the right time
This will enable users to make the right decisions.
The role of Regulatory Affairs is changing which is becoming the linchpin of the organization by taking up a role as the information broker, by supplying information to different stakeholders, both within as well as outside the organization.
In the age of digitalization, RIM plays a vital role within life science industry, as a central hub of regulated information, which support many cross-functional processes, such as manufacturing, R&D, clinical trials, pharmacovigilance, quality assurance, etc.
Last but not least, having established a single, reliable source of truth allows for automation of processes (generation of product information, signal detection in pharmacovigilance, providing information for batch release, etc.).Watch our webinar on ways to optimize the use of your RIM system.
Typical challenges during RIMS implementation
In our accumulated experience, we have identified several challenges with regards to RIMS implementation:
- Short timelines for the selection of the RIMS that fits your needs
- Lack of buy-in from high-management and/or business
- Limited experience with a RIMS, technical requirements and vendor interaction
- No proper setup of User Requirements and/or Use Case for the selection of a RIMS
- Underestimation of importance of defining Data Governance
- Limited internal resources for actual implementation, data collection, migration and training
- Insufficient hands-on experience with selected RIMS
- Data quality issues and magnitude of the legacy data
- Underestimation of the impact of RIM on business processes, including establishing new procedures
