Pharmaceutical companies and organisations get access to large amounts of data related to patients, clinical trials, and regulatory affairs. Mismanagement and misuse of such confidential data assets may tarnish the trust of people in them and may also bring litigation.

The needs of healthcare personnel (HCPs) and patients have evolved over the years with the increasing use of digital technologies, such as apps and virtual chat tools, and the adoption of personalised medicine. Prioritisation and implementation of effective consent and preference management are important for the transparent and proactive management of data.

Different regulations across the globe, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the US, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act provide more control to people over their personal data and create restrictions for organisations to obtain, process and disclose information.
