Localizing Regulated Content While Saving Time and Money

Author-it Pharmaceutical Webinar Series

Monday May 4, 2015 | 10:00am PST

Pharmaceutical companies must endure the challenges tied with global submissions. From translations to local regulatory requirements, it is difficult to maintain the integrity of Core Data Sheets and ensure consistency across submission variations. When labeling events fast-track submissions, the scramble to pull together content may result in errors, omissions, and out-of-date information riddling the published document. On top of all this, localization is a very expensive process.

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and Ann Rockley, CEO of The Rockley Group, for this Author-it sponsored webinar to learn how you can: Reuse content to effectively comply with specific, local regulatory requirements and formats; maintain the Core Data Sheet while reconstituting topics for each country; increase visibility of content changes when labeling events occur; and lower translation costs by utilizing components.

Bridging Pharma Content Silos: Managing Content From Clinical Through Labeling and Marketing

Author-it Pharmaceutical Webinar Series

Monday April 13, 2015 | 10:00am PST

Content is produced for clinical trials, submissions, labeling, and marketing. The content is created, recreated, and recreated throughout its lifecycle. At best case it is copied and pasted into multiple documents. Often times, the original source of the content is lost within the versions. When content changes, it must be found and updated wherever it occurs. This process is time-consuming and error-prone. Content can be interpreted differently at each stage allowing for "drift" in the message and accuracy.

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Ann Rockley, CEO of The Rockley Group, for this Author-it sponsored webinar to learn how you can: Envision your content as a coherent whole rather than disparate documents; develop methods for reusing content; and optimize the content creation, review, and delivery process.

Intelligently Managing the Complexities of the Core Data Sheet

The Core Data Sheet (CDS) is a critical component of the effective creation of Labeling content for different regulatory regions and outputs (Prescribing Information/Package Insert, Package Leaflet, etc.). The content is typically managed in email, complex MS Word documents, or Excel spreadsheets. It is difficult to track content relationships and ensure accuracy as the content moves out of the CDS to the desired deliverables. It is a painstaking and error-prone process.

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and Ann Rockley, CEO of The Rockley Group, for this Author-it sponsored webinar to learn how you can use intelligent content best practices to design a structured component-based CDS.

Agile Life Sciences Content

November 12


Agile is a rapidly growing method for software development that emphasizes rapid iteration and adaptability. However, it is also being adopted by organizations in many industries to enable them to be lean and responsive. Agile may not sound possible in the Life Sciences industry, but Agile is a must for successful Life Sciences organizations to rapidly respond to regulatory changes, provide the content that healthcare providers and patients need when they need it and on the device they want it in, ensure that printed content is synchronized with electronic content and respond to increasing globalization needs.

Join Ann Rockley and Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for this FREE one-hour web presentation as they discuss how Life Sciences can adopt agile best practices.

Reducing Errors in Life Sciences Content: Adopting a Manufacturing Paradigm

October 14

No one tries to create “bad content,” but it’s an unfortunate fact that errors in the field can often be traced back to problems in the content. Errors can be caused by incorrect content, lack of version control, poor claims management, missing or inconsistent content, rekeying errors or manual translation management. Our manual content creation processes are too often letting us down, and they increase both the chance of error and the length of time it takes to create content. We can’t handcraft content anymore; we need to move towards a manufacturing paradigm.

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, with special guest Ann Rockley, President of The Rockley Group, for this free, one-hour webinar to learn how you can improve your content processes and reduce errors.
