LORENZlink 2018 – Second North American RIM Conference hosted by LORENZ Life Sciences Group



Frankfurt/Main, 3 May 2018 // LORENZlink 2018, the 2nd North American conference by LORENZ Life Sciences Group took place during April 16-17, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee at Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Once again, the event was sold out. Over 110 attendees from industry and regulatory health agency sectors participated in two days of presentations, tutorials and panel discussions on regulatory topics.

During the keynote presentation LORENZ highlighted the need of interoperability and simplification in the eRegulatory Affairs world. These topics were often picked up by other speakers as well. For example, Sandra Krogulski from Accenture Accelerated R&D Services gave insights on RIM Technology and understanding the development of related processes while Maria Crump, Regulatory Professionals, Inc., talked about key success factors in approaching eTMF from start to finish. Teresa Martins from Bayer shared her experiences of an AdPromo Launch submitted in eCTD format and Health Canada’s Irena Pastorekova gave a valuable update on Electronic Submissions at Health Canada.

A panel discussion led by Antoinette Azevedo from eSubmissionsSolutions.com broached the challenges of Content Management and Submission Publishing in the Cloud. Representatives from Veeva, Court Square Group, United Therapeutics Corporation and LORENZ joined the discussion.

Already an inherent and favored part of LORENZ events, also in Nashville, table tutorials gave participants the chance to cover specific topics in smaller groups with face-to-face discussions and demonstrations on topics as varied as “Implementing RIM in Your Company”, “Regulatory Updates” and “New Hyperlinking Functionality in LORENZ docuBridge”.

During the optional docuBridge training day following the conference itself, participants learned how to create a new application as well as the basics of compiling modules 1-5. Elsmari Eggers from LORENZ also taught them many tips and tricks for working with LORENZ docuBridge.

“LORENZlink’s philosophy is to Converge, Connect and Collaborate, and this is exactly what the last days were all about.” said Yaprak Eisinger, MD North America, after the event. “We were happy to once again be the host of this platform of thoughts exchange and I am especially happy to see that our customers and partners also enjoyed the beautiful city of Nashville.”

The next LORENZlink conference will take place in April 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The exact date will be announced in the near future on LORENZ’ website, www.lorenz.cc.
