Welcome to Scimcon, the Scientific Information Management Consultancy

Scimcon, the global partner for Scientific Information Management Consultancy, begins its inaugural post on the many facets of partnering on information management projects in the life sciences industry

Digital Laboratory Transformation

With 91 million results in google search for the term ‘digital laboratory transformation’, this area seems to be the buzzword of the 20s. Scimcon has long been a stalwart in this area, having provided global partnership in information management to big pharma, bio and clinical organizations for over two decades.

The combined experience of our team spans more than 200 years of hands-on project roles in life sciences! What Information Management projects need, Scimcon has delivered: we have seen every type of project from every type of angle and have a unique perspective on how to ensure success.

And digital laboratory transformation is our lifeblood.

So with the establishment of our new website, we are launching a blog to address the subject of the digital lab and eClinical systems, and try to tackle some of the challenges, whilst also dispelling some of the myths.

Analytical projects including Information System Strategies, LIMS, ELN & LES, SDMS, CDS, DMS, Stability Management and Instrument Integration to mention a few. 

Scimcon’s original pedigree lies in the field of Information Management projects in the analytical laboratory. The company and its project consultants have extensive experience in:

  • LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems)
  • ELNs (Electronic Lab Notebooks) & LES (Lab Execution Systems)
  • SDMS (Scientific Data Management Systems)
  • CDS (Chromatography Systems)
  • Integration of laboratory instruments
  • Document Management Systems
  • Sample and Freezer Management Systems
  • Biobank Management Systems
  • Stability Management Systems
  • Information System Strategies
  • Project leadership
  • Business analysis
  • Technical specialists
  • User requirements gathering
  • Technical Audits
  • Gap analysis
  • Project requirement scoping
  • Management of tenders and RFP management
  • Information systems implementation management
  • Systems validation
  • Vendor audits and vendor selection
  • Regulatory compliance including ISO 17025
  • E-Signatures and compliance with Part 11
  • Designing and delivering systems training

Clinical projects including eCOA, ePRO, eDiaries, Drug Safety Systems & EDC 

With such an extensive knowledge of Information Management in laboratories and life sciences, Scimcon has more recently been invited to supply similar services for the clinical trials industry and especially in the move from paper to digital records. The development and adoption of new Drug Development Tools (DDTs) lies at the intersection between regulatory, science, academia and pharma drug innovation. It is generally thought that paper is a poor format for patient compliance in diaries, and data/ electronic adoption improves both compliance and record-keeping in clinical trials. With our relatable experience, Scimcon has been involved in applying its successful project leadership to the areas of:

  • ePRO (electronic patient reported outcomes)
  • eCOA (Electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments)
  • eConsent
  • BYOD (Bring your own devices)
  • Electronic patient diaries
  • Drug Safety Systems
  • EDC (Electronic Data Capture)

Top tips for partnering on projects

Our blogs will help you to navigate the world of outsourcing project leadership for either your analytical or clinical Information Management project.

The first step is to recognize why partnering is helpful:

Successful projects happen when you can trust the partner who is helping you. You do not need to relinquish control of your Information Management projects, but to successfully take them forward a trusted supplier who is not afraid to challenge, and who is vendor-neutral, can bring so much to the table.

In both the largest and the smallest organization alike, the knowledge of the organization rests with its employees. This leads to a natural gap of knowledge between best practice, external and competitor knowledge, and learning from others.

Scimcon fills that gap, its combination of deep hands-on experience, combined with information systems skills, extensive scientific systems and organizational experience, and a commitment to project success, means that we are always committed to bringing successful projects over the line.

We know the shortcuts, we understand the limitations with vendor capabilities, we recognize the scope of your existing systems and we know how to get the best from your teams. And our 100% year-in, year-out experience as a project partner means that we are always working, always able to move projects forward, even when faced with organizational challenges.
