It is also about risk mitigation and protecting the safety and well-being of patients.
Here is an Executive Summary of Appian's approach to GxP compliance:
Before we review the elements of Appian's core architecture that support GxP, it is important to note how configuring applications in Appian is different from efforts in other software approaches.
Applications in Appian are developed using graphical business process models instead of writing computer code. These models serve as both the documentation of the application, as well as the executable artifact that performs the application's functions. Plus, the Platform uses anagile development methodology that takes advantage ofshort development cycles and constant customer and subject expert feedback ensures the right solution is delivered as quickly as possible.
Because Appian solutions are created with graphical models and not hand-written computer code, it is easy to share mid-stage development with business users. This evolutionary approach creates transparency in the development process and facilitates a constant feedback loop for continuous requirements validation. This results in applications that are generally delivered with higher confidence in a shorter time period and at a lower cost.
Appian is dedicated to configuring software solutions for the Life Science industry that satisfy Title 21 CFR Part 11 requirements, as well as GxP (i.e., GMP, GCP, GLP, and GAMP). We recognize our Life Science clients must follow good practices (GxP) to ensure their manufacturing processes, clinical trials, technology transfer/scale ups, and post-marketing surveillance activities meet very specific compliance and quality requirements. Appian's core architecture includes many features that assist in validation and ensuring compliance to relevant international quality standards and best practices.
