Defining the Computer Systems Validation (CSV) Lifecycle: 
Four Foundational Components Supporting Your Clinical Trials

Today’s technology continues to accelerate. The proliferation of handhelds, wearables, and cloud-based services permeate our lives and places of business. As the affordability and adaptability of electronic means of communication, data sharing and distribution become ubiquitous, it is often that individuals and businesses forget about the ramifications of data integrity and privacy in the name of speed and access. When it comes to your CSV Foundation, how can you improve efficiencies and execution of your trials while minimizing risk in today's world of technological advancement?

In this white paper, we'll take a closer look at how these four areas define the overall CSV lifestyle:

  1. Defining a way to validate software
  2. Scoping the level of validation needed
  3. Validating a solution
  4. Maintaining a validated state
