WASHINGTON—DIA and Veeva will co-host the complimentary webinar “The Affiliate Challenge – How to Improve Compliance and Efficiency When Working with Regional Affiliates” on July 17 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT.

“This webinar will bring together industry experts to discuss strategies on improving compliance, transparency and collaboration between sponsors, and affiliates or distributors,” said Barbara L. Kunz, DIA global chief executive. Insights will be presented from new research on the current state of Regulatory Information Management (RIM) tools and resulting challenges for regional affiliates. Experts will lead a discussion of global and local data ownership responsibilities, and the pros and cons of different sharing data methods. Attendees will identify how to improve transparency and collaboration between a centralized headquarters and regional offices. Most importantly, methods will be presented on how to generate new processes and systems to bring affiliates “closer to headquarters.” These methods will include how to produce real-time status reports on affiliate activities.
