PITTSBURGH, PA and TORONTO, ON, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Astrata, a market innovator in Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS1) natural language processing (NLP) and healthcare quality solutions, and Smile CDR, a leading health data and integration company, announced today that their Digital HEDIS solution, eMeasure, is one of the first digital HEDIS engines to earn the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Certification for new digital measures. NCQA Certification programs evaluate systems and processes that support data collection, surveys, and quality improvement. This initial Certification, which includes the breast cancer screening (BCS-E) and colorectal cancer screening (COL-E) measures, follows successful beta-testing of the new Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®)-based digital measures by the Astrata team in collaboration with NCQA.

In 2020, Astrata and Smile CDR partnered to develop and release eMeasure, a digital measure engine that natively uses FHIR and Clinical Quality Language (CQL), inherent standards to the new digital measures. With their new premier partnership, their game-changing solution is focused on supporting health plans as they move to HEDIS digital quality measurement, an important step in the transition to value-based care.

"Certification of eMeasure is an exciting milestone for our partnership as it provides external validation of the major advances we are making towards #BetterGlobalHealth," said Duncan Weatherston, CEO, Smile CDR. "As the leading provider of FHIR solutions in healthcare, we are thrilled to be part of the industry's overall effort to modernize quality measurement in support of improving patient care and health outcomes across populations. Astrata's innovative HEDIS solution and thought leadership makes them an excellent partner in the pursuit of digital transformation in healthcare."

"We know this is going to be an important and challenging transition for the industry," said Dr. Rebecca Jacobson, President of Astrata. "Digital quality measurement offers so much promise for the future - it's going to be faster, more accurate, and more useful to healthcare organizations in managing the care of populations and individual patients."

eMeasure is purpose-built to easily incorporate clinical data from electronic health record systems, resulting in more timely quality data, reduced manual and paper-based processes, decreased administrative costs, and the ability to refocus resources on quality improvement, both from a surveillance and intervention perspective.

As NCQA continues to drive towards digital quality, new requirements will produce new technologies as well as new opportunities for health plans to Boost their quality measurement.

"NCQA is committed to work with the industry to help move to digital measurement within roughly five years. We expect many innovations will emerge to help health plans meet these new requirements," said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane.

The move to FHIR is an important step in the transformation of quality measurement because it will enable more seamless interoperability between providers and payers, a notable pain point in today's current quality landscape.

"The use of Health Level Seven International (HL7®) FHIR is foundational to the future of quality measurement," said Dr. Viet Nguyen, Chief Standards Implementation Officer for HL7 International. "We are excited to see native FHIR and CQL products begin to emerge in the marketplace."

Astrata and Smile CDR continue to focus on ensuring that their solution set manages real operational workflows while also increasing interoperability across systems. Together, the companies hope to work towards improving the world through greater interoperability and better health outcomes.

HEDIS®, a set of standardized performance measures designed to ensure that purchasers and consumers have the information they need to reliably compare health care quality, is a registered trademark of the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Note: Mineral Resources are estimated at a uranium cut off grade of 1.0% U3O8

Tim Gabruch, President and Chief Executive Officer commented: "Since incorporation by NexGen Energy in 2016, IsoEnergy's objective has been to explore for high-grade uranium on the eastern side of Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin.  Following the discovery of Hurricane in July 2018 IsoEnergy has focused on determining the scope and scale of the deposit. The six drilling programs completed since then have culminated in today's announcement of an Indicated Mineral Resource of 48.61 million pounds U3O8 at an average grade of 34.5% U3O8, with the high-grade domain containing nearly 44 million pounds U3O8 at an average grade of 52.1% U3O8. The team at IsoEnergy is extremely proud of the work done on Hurricane, and it is rewarding to present this initial Resource Estimate to the Company's stakeholders.

Hurricane's exceptionally high uranium grade and relatively shallow depth, together with its proximity to existing eastern Athabasca Basin road, power and milling infrastructure are key attributes.  Saskatchewan is home to the world's largest and highest-grade uranium mines and deposits, and it is recognized as the premier mining jurisdiction in Canada and one of the best globally. For decades it has also been established as one of the most stable, dependable jurisdictions for the world's nuclear energy providers to source uranium. Today, the outlook for nuclear energy has never been more positive, with growing recognition of the vital role it will play in providing clean, baseload energy to help address climate change challenges globally. IsoEnergy will continue to progress Hurricane with an objective to meaningfully contribute to the world's growing demand for clean nuclear energy."  

Andy Carmichael, Vice President of Exploration commented: "This Mineral Resource Estimate establishes Hurricane as the world's newest, very high-grade uranium deposit. On average, one cubic metre of Hurricane's high-grade domain weighs over 4.5 tonnes and contains over 5,200 lbs of U3O8. Of the past- and presently- producing uranium mines in the Athabasca Basin, Hurricane is most analogous to the Cigar Lake deposit at the nearby operating mine with respect to the mineralization's grade, thickness, width, style, and the alteration halo and ground conditions which mantle the deposit. Notably, Hurricane's Mineral Resource Estimate employs a cut-off grade consistent with uranium Mineral Resource Estimates reported from Cigar Lake and other operations in the eastern Athabasca Basin."

Geology and Mineralization

The Hurricane zone measures 375 metres along strike, up to 125 metres wide, and up to 12 metres thick. The high-grade domain, which contains 43.89 million pounds of U3O8 at an average grade of 52.1% U3O8, occupies an area 125 metres long and is up to 63 metres wide and up to 4.5 metres thick. Mineralization at Hurricane occurs at the sub-Athabasca unconformity approximately 325 metres vertically below surface and is essentially horizontal. East-west trending, steeply north-dipping basement rocks underlying Hurricane host centimetre- to metre-scale fault zones preferentially occurring at contacts between graphitic and non-graphitic units. Mineralization is controlled by the intersection of these fault zones with the sub-Athabasca unconformity resulting mineralization elongated in its east-west dimension. Mineralization ranges from disseminated to massive and includes very high-grade intersections, including 38.8% over 7.5 metres in LE20-76 between 322.5 and 330 metres which includes a subinterval averaging 74.0% U3O8 over 3.5 metres from 324.0 to 327.5 metres. Additional Hurricane drilling highlights are presented in Table 3, including intercepts from high-grade domain.

Drilling, Sampling and Analytical

The Mineral Resource Estimate was defined using 52 diamond drill holes totaling 20,387 metres and using 785 samples. Uranium grade data comprises chemical assays of half split drill core samples collected on site by IsoEnergy staff. All samples were assayed at the independent Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) Geoanalytical Laboratory of Saskatoon, an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited facility. Samples were analysed using a combination of inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), and partial or total acid digestion of one aliquot of representative sample pulp per analysis.   Mineralized samples were analysed for U3O8 by ICP-OES.  Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) measures include the field insertion of Certified Reference Material (CRM) standards, CRM blanks, and duplicate samples. The Mineral Resource Estimate grade data was obtained only from chemical assays; no radiometric data were utilized.

Estimation Methodology

Mineral Resources were estimated by SLR Consulting (Canada) Ltd. (SLR), an independent consulting company experienced in completing uranium Mineral Resource estimates in the Athabasca Basin and worldwide.

Wireframe models of mineralized zones were used to constrain the block model grade interpolation process. The models represent grade envelopes using the geological interpretation described above as guidance. The wireframes consisted of Low-Grade (LG), Medium-Grade (MG), and High-Grade (HG) domains at nominal cut-off grades (COG) of 0.05%, 5.0%, and 25.0% U3O8, respectively (Figures 1 and 2). sample intervals with assay results less than the nominated COG were included within the mineralized wireframes if the core length was less than two metres or allowed for modelling of grade continuity. Hard domain boundaries were employed to prevent assay results from one domain influencing the remaining domains.

Statistical evaluation of samples from each domain was completed separately to determine the treatment of high-grade assays. No capping was applied to the High-Grade domain; assays were capped at 5.0% U3O8 and 20.0% U3O8 within the Low- and Medium-Grade domains, respectively. High grade x density threshold value of 250 (approximately equivalent to 55% U3O8) spatial restrictions equal to half the parent search ellipse dimensions were utilized within the High-Grade domain.

The uranium grade was used to estimate the density of each sample using polynomial formula developed by SLR from the results of 115 samples analyzed for bulk density and uranium grade. Densities were then interpolated into the block model to convert mineralized volumes to tonnage and were also used to weight the uranium grades interpolated into each block.

Blocks were classified as Indicated or Inferred based on drill hole spacing, confidence in the geological interpretation, and apparent continuity of mineralization. All the blocks within the HG domains and blocks within the MG domain with apparent grade continuity from two or more holes were classified as Indicated. For the LG grade domain, blocks that did not meet the criteria of grade x thickness (GT) greater or equal to 1.0%m were removed from the Mineral Resource reporting. The block model was validated using swath plots of composite grades versus inverse distance cubed, ordinary kriging, and nearest neighbour grades in the X, Y, and Z dimensions, volumetric comparison of blocks versus wireframes, visual inspection of block versus composite grades on plan, vertical, and long section, and statistical comparison of block grades and assay composite grades.

Killexams : AIICO Gets Quality Assurance Certification

AIICO Insurance Plc has emerged the first Nigerian insurance company to be certified with a Quality Assurance Scheme accreditation by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) UK.

According to a statement by IFoA, this was in recognition of the company’s commitment to providing quality assurance at an organisational level, promoting confidence in their actuaries; and demonstrating a commitment to high-quality actuarial work and supporting employees in carrying out that work.

The IFOA is the UK’s only chartered professional body dedicated to educating, developing and regulating actuaries based in the UK and also internationally.

By this certification, AIICO, has joined the list of IFoA’s 44 accredited organisations globally and third in Africa after two organisations were accredited in Kenya in the last two years. Currently, AIICO has one of the largest actuarial workforce in the insurance industry in Nigeria.

AIICO’s Chief Actuary, Mr Wycliffe Obutu, commenting on the accreditation, stated: “We are delighted to receive this global accreditation from the institute after a rigorous review process.
“This is a noteworthy milestone for the company, management and staff, and the actuarial profession in West Africa, especially Nigeria.

“Management of the company, with the support of its staff, especially Actuarial and HR, is proud to have initiated the process for this accreditation that, in partnership with IFoA, requires actuarial work in the company (and the market) to be undertaken to a high quality that is comparable globally.”

Also speaking, AIICO Managing Director, Mr. Babatunde Fajemirokun, said, “We are staying true to the pursuit of our vision of emerging as the dominant insurer in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Killexams : Ascot Resources Intercepts Bonanza-Grade Gold of 193 g/t Over 1.0 Metre at the Sebakwe Zone

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ascot Resources Ltd. (TSX: AOT; OTCQX: AOTVF) (“Ascot” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the first batch of assay results from the 2022 exploration drill program at the Company’s Premier Gold Project (“PGP” or the “project”), located on Nisga’a Nation Treaty Lands in the prolific Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia. These results are from surface exploration drilling at the emerging Sebakwe Zone near the past-producing Premier mill, and with assays of up to 193 g/t gold, continue to highlight the high-grade tenor of the Sebakwe Zone.

Highlights from the drill results include:

  • 193.00 g/t Au and 41.8 g/t Ag over 1.0m from a depth of 315m in hole P22-2393
  • 17.78 g/t Au and 20.1 g/t Ag over 3.0m from a depth of 366m in hole P22-2393, including 51.00 g/t Au and 54.6 g/t Ag over 1.0m
  • 4.77 g/t Au and 18.2 g/t Ag over 4.5m from a depth of 331m in hole P22-2393, including 12.10 g/t Au and 34.5 g/t Ag over 1.6m
  • 25.90 g/t Au and 21.0 g/t Ag over 1.0m from a depth of 413m in hole P22-2389

This release summarizes the results from six surface drill holes totaling 2,477 metres at the emerging Sebakwe Zone, approximately 600 metres east of the Premier mill building. After drilling two holes in 2021 on this zone, one of which intercepted 36.17 g/t gold over 7.1 metres (see News Release dated December 15, 2021), the Company had initially planned on drilling 10 new holes totaling approximately 4,000 metres as a part of the 2022 exploration drilling program. As drilling progressed, based on encouraging visual indications of mineralization and structure, the drill program was increased to 15 holes totaling 6,091 metres at the Sebakwe Zone.

Derek White, President and CEO of Ascot commented, “The Sebakwe Zone continues to impress with its high-grade pedigree and growth potential. Hole P22-2393 intercepted 193 g/t gold over 1.0m, representing the highest-grade drilled by Ascot in latest years. In such a short timeframe, Ascot has now defined visual mineralization at the Sebakwe Zone in multiple parallel vein structures over a strike extent of 70 metres and a vertical extent of 120 metres. Given its proximity to the Premier mill and planned underground mine development, Sebakwe is a compelling target for low-cost, accretive resource growth. The geometrical similarities to the Premier and Northern Light deposits adjacent to the south are so far reaffirming our hypothesis that the Sebakwe Zone is a third parallel mineralized structure.”

An updated three-dimensional model of the Sebakwe Zone drill results can be found at the link below or by visiting Ascot’s website. The model shows drill results from 2021, the new results released today, and the remaining holes completed for which assays are pending.

https://vrify.com/decks/11811

An overview of drill hole locations is shown in Figure 1. Drill results were headlined by hole P22-2393 which intercepted bonanza-grade gold of 193.00 g/t over 1.0m (Figure 2). The depth of that intercept corresponds well with a 6.64 g/t gold intercept in hole P22-2389, a 39.00 g/t gold intercept from hole P21-2386, and a 29.60 g/t gold intercept from hole P21-2385, indicating the potential continuity of that mineralized vein structure. Hole P22-2393 also intercepted high-grade mineralization at two other distinct depths, indicating the presence of multiple parallel vein structures. This corresponds well with the mineralization styles of the Premier and Northern Light deposits.

Each of the eight reported Sebakwe drill holes from 2021 and 2022 have intercepted the targeted quartz-breccia structures with sulfide mineralization and all have encountered anomalous gold mineralization, with the exception of hole P22-2390 which was stopped short due to hitting an underground void, likely an historic exploration tunnel. Assay results are pending for the remaining nine holes drilled this year. Most of these holes were drilled with wider step-out spacing towards the east, targeting a strike extent of approximately 400 metres for the Sebakwe Zone.

Killexams : Significant Maiden Molybdenum Resource Defined Adjacent to the Tungsten Orebody at Sangdong Mine in South Korea

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 18, 2022--

Almonty Industries Inc. (“ Almonty ” or the “ Company ”) (TSX: AII / ASX: AII / OTCQX: ALMTF / Frankfurt: ALI) is pleased to announce a maiden JORC 2012-compliant Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate ( MRE ) of 21.48Mt @ 0.26% MoS2 at the 0.19% MoS 2 reporting cut-off for the Almonty Korea Moly Project ( AKM Project ), which is located on the existing Sangdong Tungsten Mine, which is currently under construction in South Korea.

Almonty’s Chairman, President and CEO Lewis Black commented:

“The AKM Project is a major growth plank for Almonty and is conveniently located immediately adjacent to the tungsten mine, on our fully permitted, under construction Sangdong Tungsten Mine. We are pleased to report our maiden Mineral Resource Estimate which could be a globally relevant project in its own right.

We are pleased to note that based on a review of previous exploration work, the MRE has significant upside, given the deposit appears to be open in multiple directions and further that potential exists to delineate a high grade zone within the current orebody.

We are also excited to formulate a robust mining plan so that this project will run alongside our tungsten mine simultaneously given that both can share the same existing mining infrastructure and the dramatic development cost savings it presents. Being LME traded, it is also pleasing to note the hedging and pricing transparency of molybdenum. We look forward continuing further exploration works to integrating the AKM Project into the Sangdong Tungsten Mine.”

The MRE has been independently estimated by Adam Wheeler, an independent mining consultant, was prepared according to the guidelines of the JORC Code dated 2012 and has also been prepared in accordance with the 2015 edition of the Australasian Code for Public Reporting of Technical Assessments and Valuations of Mineral Assets (“VALMIN Code”).

The Resource estimate was based on a drillhole database stemming from underground drilling, and some surface drilling, completed prior to 1992 by the Korea Tungsten Mining Company Ltd. ( KTMC ), as well by Oriental Minerals OTL during 2006-2008. The KTMC drilling covers 14,300m over 27 holes.

Almonty notes that, based on a review of historical drilling, the molybdenum zone may continue to the northeast and northwest, where significant MoS2 was intersected in historical exploration drilling.

The molybdenum deposit of the AKM Project is located adjacent to the tungsten mine of Sangdong and appears to be hydrothermal and with two different mineralisation stages.

Further, it was noted that sections with zones of higher grade do occur, but insufficient drilling has been carried out to properly assess the grade distribution. The company will further assess both the full size and scale and higher-grade zones in future exploration work.

Mineral Resource Estimate

The current evaluation work has been carried out and prepared according to the guidelines of the JORC Code (2012). The current resource estimation is shown below, for a cut-off of 0.19%MoS 2. This cut-off level was derived from a molybdenum price of 14.25$/lb Mo. The resource model uses a maximum lateral extrapolation of 100m.

Geology and geological interpretation

The Jangsan quartzite underlies the main tungsten skarn deposit of the Sangdong mine. This formation contains the Sangdong Molybdenum Stockwork (SMS), a zone of quartz veins hosting predominantly molybdenum mineralisation (Kuehnbaum, 2006 and Le, 2001). The mineralisation appears to be hydrothermal in nature and with two stages of mineral deposition; the first molybdenum-poor scheelite mineralisation was related to skarn alteration, which was followed by quartz-scheelite-molybdenite-bismuthenite vein emplacement. It is currently considered that the deep molybdenum mineralisation is likely to comprise a system of sheeted or stockwork veins.

In previous evaluation work, a mineralised envelope had been defined which terminated upwards at the top of the quartzite. However, it is clear that the MoS 2 mineralisation continues up into the overlying slates. The upper part of the overall MoS 2 mineralisation overlaps with the tungsten-bearing beds and underground mine workings. The current interpretation has been based on capturing the majority of the +0.1%MoS 2 assays.

Drilling Database

The drillhole database stems from underground drilling, and some surface drilling, completed prior to 1992 by the Korea Tungsten Mining Company Ltd. (“KTMC”), as well by Oriental Minerals OTL during 2006-2008. The KTMC drilling covers 14,300m over 27 holes. The OTL drilling which intersected the area of molybdenum mineralisation, covers 4,000m over 6 holes. The sample database is in the form of an Excel spreadsheets.

The majority of the holes are vertical with an average lateral spacing of approximately 100m. Once within the overall extents of the molybdenum zone, most of the holes exhibit marked alternating nature of high and low grade assays, consistent with an overall stockwork interpretation. The nature and dip of the higher grade intersections is not clear. The upper 25% of the overall MoS2 mineralisation continues is hosted in slates. The lower 75% of the overall MoS2 mineralisation is hosted in quartzite.

Mineral Resource Estimation Methodology

An updated mineral resource estimation was completed by the Competent Person. This estimation employed a three-dimensional block modelling approach, using Datamine software. The block model was set up with a 25m x 25m x 5m parent cell size and a cutoff grade of 0.19% MoS 2. Grade estimation was done using ordinary kriging (OK) for the waste/mineralisation fractions, as well as low and high MoS2 grade portions. These estimated values were combined to supply overall MoS2 grades for each parent block.

All of these modelled resources were classified with an Inferred category, reflecting the spacing and quality of available data, as well as the geological understanding of the deposit.

Drilling Techniques, Sampling and assaying

The following information was based on the Wardrop. “Sangdong Project Scoping Study” published in April 2010.

Sample Preparation

Sample preparation from core to pulps for analysis was completed on-site. Core was sawn in half, half placed in a plastic sample bag and half replaced in the core box for archival storage. sample tags were placed in the core box and in the sample bag and the sample number was written on the sample bag as well. Standards were placed into the sample stream at this point in the sampling process, in accordance with a sample list that had been drawn up by the geologist responsible for logging the hole. Core samples were dried, split, crushed and pulverized on-site by WMC personnel in a preparation lab that was purchased as a modular unit. Equipment was cleaned by brushing and the use of compressed air between each sample. An approximately 50g split portion of the pulverized sample was sent to Perth, Australia, for analysis. Blanks are inserted one in every twenty samples to ensure there is no contamination.

Analyses

From 2006 to 2008 samples were analysed at an external laboratory in Brisbane by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP- MS) for 41 elements and for ore grade quantities of specific elements by aqua regia or four-acid digestion followed by ICP analysis. All quantities are reported in parts per million (ppm).

Sample Security and Chain of Custody

The sample preparation facility comprised a fenced area beside the WMC accommodation facility. A split portion of the pulp from each sample and coarse rejects were retained in a locked facility at the project site. The pulps are placed in brown paper envelopes and sent by courier to

Perth.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

The QA/QC protocol included the insertion of the following control samples in the assay batches, as summarised below:

  • Pulp duplicates (one in 50, or 2%), consisting of second splits of the pulverized samples that are submitted to the primary laboratory for analysis in the same batches as the original samples, but with different numbers.
  • Certified reference materials (CRMs, three in 50, or 6%).
  • Coarse blanks (one in 50, or 2%) and fine blanks (one in 50, or 2%), consisting of coarse (approximately 1” diameter) and pulverized material, respectively, whose blank character was demonstrated by laboratory analysis. Initially ground glass was used as blank for Phases #1 to #4 drilling, but was subsequently changed to coarse crystalline feldspar for Phase #5 drilling.
  • Check samples (two in 50, or 4%), collected from pulps that were previously assayed at the primary laboratory, were resubmitted to another laboratory in Perth Australia for external control. The check sample batch included an appropriate proportion of control samples (pulp duplicates, CRMs and fine blanks).

The Competent Person considers that the sample preparation, security, analytical procedures and supporting QA/QC results, relating to the 2006- 2008 drilling campaign, were collected in line with industry good practice.

Data Verification

Data verification procedures were applied by at the Sangdong Project since 2006. The Competent Person last visited the Sangdong site in August 2015, and discussed with site geologists all aspects of sample collection, preparation and storage, as well as visiting the core storage and sample preparation areas. The sample database was also reviewed and during the resource estimation update, many aspects of the drillhole data were checked by communication with the Sangdong geologists. The Competent Person, after also checking the Phase 7 (2016 drilling) results, considers these new results to be demonstrating the same accuracy as previously, which therefore supports their use in Mineral Resource Estimation. In the Competent Person’s opinion, the geological data stemming from drilling data after 2006 were collected in line with good industry practice, allowing the results to be reported according to the guidelines of the JORC Code. It is not known what quality control procedures were applied to data derived prior to 2006.

Bulk Density

In the current resource estimation work, global average density values (t/m3) were applied, of 2.63 t/m3 for Quartzite and 2.7 t/m3 for Slate. It is considered that the density values applied do take adequate account of void spaces. There is no basis for any particular relationship between density and MoS2 grade values.

Classification

All of these modelled resources were classified with an Inferred category, reflecting the spacing and quality of available data, as well as the geological understanding of the deposit.

Mining factors or Assumptions

A minimum thickness of 5m was applied in the Mineral Resource estimation, as being a realistic minimum height for underground mining.

Metallurgical Testing

No metallurgical test work has been completed on the AKM Project by Almonty to date.

Environmental Permitting

The AKM Project is located on the Sangdong Tungsten Mine which is fully permitted, with all environmental requirements for the current development of the Sangdong Tungsten Mine have been met. There are no areas requiring special protection or significant natural environmental resources or wildlife habitats in the area surrounding the Project site.

Killexams : QAD and USDM Life Sciences Announce New Cloud Assurance Certification

QAD Cloud Assurance Report shows direct solution support for Life Sciences GMP requirements

QAD Inc., a leading provider of next-generation manufacturing and supply chain solutions in the cloud, will join the exclusive USDM Life Sciences Cloud Assurance Certification program. After a formal audit and review of QAD SOPs and SDLC business processes, USDM Life Sciences has also released the QAD Cloud Assurance Report.

This third party assessment provides QAD life sciences customers with documented evidence of the rigorous and well-tested development, quality, security, cloud hosting, and training processes and policies supporting Life Sciences GMP requirements. The report can also be leveraged during internal and external audits, saving manufacturers and their suppliers considerable time and resources. Instead of wasting effort reviewing checklists, requesting input from the various stakeholders, and chasing down documented procedures, quality and regulatory personnel can easily reference the QAD Cloud Assurance Report in their audit documentation and focus their time on more critical, value-added company activities.

"There's never been a more important time to deliver life-sustaining and life-changing vaccines, treatments and cures to people around the world," said Jennifer Petrosky, director, life sciences at QAD. "Leveraging digital technologies, including QAD digital manufacturing and supply chain applications in the cloud, is a critical way to keep life sciences companies focused on what they do best, delivering innovation."

Regardless of the application, life sciences companies have been reluctant to adopt cloud-based applications for multiple reasons. First and foremost is the fear of non-compliance. Both FDA and European Commission data management systems regulations FDA 21 CFR 11.10 (a) and EudraLex Annex 11 Section 4 require computer system validation (CSV) to be performed across the entire lifecycle of computer systems used for the manufacturing, storage, or testing of a drug or medical device product. Failure to maintain a validated state for any computer system could result in regulatory citation, fines or even product recalls. Historically, this has been a long and arduous task. Now with QAD partnering with USDM, customers can circumvent these costs, risks and delays by engaging with technology leaders armed with a world-class validation platform as part of a global ERP deployment.

"USDM manages continuous cloud compliance for hundreds of life sciences customers, and we understand their reluctance to adopt cloud technologies first-hand," said Kim Hutchings, head of alliances at USDM Life Sciences. "As trusted thought leaders, we believe it's our duty to help life sciences companies turn regulation into innovation and utilize modern applications like QAD to get their products, therapies and devices to market faster."

Having access to adaptive digital solutions on a frequent and periodic basis allows life sciences companies to stay competitive and deliver products to patients in new markets more quickly, reduce the cost of compliance and minimize the risk of regulatory penalties. QAD customers that join this program will be on a path for continuous software upgrades when they need it, achieve a state of continuous compliance, and save considerable resources along the way.
