On November 12th, BGO Software was a host of a closed-door boutique event in our HQ in Sofia, Bulgaria – “Implementing new or redesigning existing software solutions in CROs, SMOs, hospitals and pharma companies – what to expect and how to be prepared“. The event was a get together for C-level executives from the clinical research and pharma industries in the country, representing the local branches of some of the top companies operating in the sector. In the closed-door meetup participated more than 30 people from the industry interested in digital healthcare and the transformation of the sector. We had five amazing speakers – experts in developing digital healthcare solutions for the pharma industry. 2 of our speakers were representatives of international companies, recognized for their leadership in the sector – AgosIT and Clinerion Turkey.

Welcome Speech by Ivan Lekushev – The Digital Healthcare Revolution

Ivan Lekushev, CEO of BGO Software, had the honor to welcome all guests to the event and share exciting facts about the digital transformation of the sector. He shared curious facts about the informational age and digital transformation. Ivan also explained the difference between digital transformation and digitization. The first step to the digital transformation, according to him, is the digitalization of all processes and routine activities inside a company. The companies, which adopt the technologies are the ones, which will survive in the digital age and will manage to grow seamlessly.

At the end of his speech, Ivan presented all the speakers and made a short intro for the case studies, which they will present.

Case Study: Considerations and challenges when implementing GxP systems /EN/

Liam Rogers, COO & Founder at AgosIT (part of Agos Group), presented the case study “Considerations and challenges when implementing GxP systems”.

The Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Healthcare and Technology industries have never been more closely entwined with the increased use of cloud software, hosted applications and IoT hardware collecting, writing, and recording data. Regulatory authorities and GxP guidelines are continually evolving, changing how Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Healthcare organizations are expected to align technology in a secured, managed and controlled way. AgosIT specializes in running and aligning technology to GxP, FDA CFR, GAMP5, MDR, HIPAA and EMA EU Annex 11 standards.
