Don't forget this when addressing data integrity!

The international regulatory focus on Data Integrity remains as strong as ever. In his latest blog, David Churchward recalls recent workshops held in China to discuss the latest guidelines and how they relate to organisational behaviour.

Issues relating to pressure, motivation, and ultimate disconnection between front line employees and their managers were hot topics.


The blog identifies three elements (pressure, opportunity and rationalisation), often referred to as the Cressey fraud triangle that provide insight into behavioural factors that can be useful indicators into the health of an organisation’s data governance efforts. 

At Broughton Software, we have developed a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) – LabHQ LIMS with data integrity at the top of the agenda. Our CEO, Dr. Paul Moran, recently issued a white paper on the importance of embracing a Culture of Quality in an organisation to facilitate data integrity compliance.

The focus on data integrity must now be ingrained in any regulated organisation with the Pharmaceutical industry leading the way. However, surely this should now be viewed as best practice in any industry. After all, we all rely on the integrity of test data to ensure that the products we purchase and consume are fit for purpose and safe.
