Developing a Data Governance Framework for Global Pharma Clinical Operations

A global pharmaceutical company recognized the critical role of data in delivering patient-centered solutions and driving healthcare innovation. However, rapid advances in technology, increasing regulatory demands, and expanding data sources made it difficult to establish a cohesive and comprehensive approach to clinical data management. To address this challenge, the company sought to establish a data governance framework specifically tailored to its clinical operations and create a blueprint to guide future data governance initiatives across the organization. Through an in-depth process of stakeholder engagement, analysis, and strategy development, Astrix enabled the company to develop a future state landscape model and align on a supporting technology architecture and business glossary, which will support the company’s data-driven vision for the future.
