We Are Real Life Sciences

RLS enables pharmaceutical manufacturers to submit anonymized and redacted clinical data and documents to Health Authorities and disclose trial results with confidence. Navigating the regulatory guidance, requirements and timelines of the various global regulations and policies can be challenging. RLS’ purpose built technology, RLS Protect, combined with its expert global Services team will provide the support and experience you need to be successful.

Anonymization Is Not One Size Fits All

The individual characteristics of your project will have a direct impact on selecting the most appropriate anonymization strategy. For example, a regulatory submission project requiring anonymized personal data such as EMA’s Policy 0070 and Health Canada PRCI are best suited for a quantitative risk-based anonymization strategy. Here, the resulting risk of re identification and data utility can be measured, giving you and the Health Authority confidence in the result. When limited patient level data is applicable, a qualitative or rules based anonymization strategy may be appropriate.

Whether you are planning a regulatory disclosure project, preparing CTR documents for publication or anonymizing a trial dataset for voluntary sharing, RLS will help you determine the most suitable strategy for your project, with consideration of potential downstream re-use of the data for other use cases.
