Paris, September 14th 2020 – Voisin Consulting Life Sciences (VCLS), a leading global HeathTech product development consultancy, today announced a partnership agreement with iliomad Health Data (iliomad).
The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) has come into force on May 25th, 2018. This new European regulation intends to empower and protect the data privacy of all EU natural persons and to reshape the way organizations are working with personal data. Such regulation has profound consequences on the planning and conduct of clinical trials. Understanding whether and how GDPR impacts the clinical trial is pivotal for the protection of patients and their personal data, as well as the data of all other individuals involved in clinical trials.
Through this partnership, VCLS and iliomad aim at developing GDPR services and digital tools to help maintain the confidentiality of private health information while allowing for the exchange of data sets among and between academics, practitioners, city labs, hospitals, biopharma, and medtech companies.
“ We are delighted to form such a partnership with iliomad. The combination of regulatory experts and GDPR specialists makes us a powerful support to our clients while navigating the complex, evolving HealthTech environment.” said Emmanuelle Voisin, Founder and CEO of VCLS.
