According to the IDA, the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical Devices and Diagnostics combined as a sector directly employs 30,000 people in Ireland. 75 pharmaceutical companies operate in Ireland and 10 of the top 10 world’s pharmaceutical companies are based here.
With such a thriving industry comes the expected regulations and standards that must be maintained. Ireland continues to have an exemplary compliance record and companies operate to both European and global high standards.
High regulation come with strict guidelines as to what documents and information must be maintained for certain periods. This information could include research documentation, applications for approvals and the results of any clinical trials. As these important pieces of information need to be kept for long periods of time in a safe and secure manner, the correct document scanning and management systems must be put in place.
As with any medical records, they must also be transported and scanned using the highest security measures. Most of this information would be market sensitive, highly valuable and critical commercially sensitive. Every step of the scanning process must be vetted to the highest standards to ensure the security of the information. The quality of the scanning work is very important.
