ReALM® is a cloud-based platform that transforms the regulatory value chain in the life sciences industry. Key modules support the streamlining of upstream activities around regulatory strategy, submission planning and registration tracking, including the ability to integrate with downstream activities and applications.

The ReALM® platform is:

  • Powered by Microsoft technologies on Windows Azure
  • Flexible, configurable and easily deployed to address specific client needs
  • A cloud-first application designed for easy scale up

How it Works

ReALM® comes with two key modules:

  1. Global Regulatory Intelligence and Planning (GRIP) to streamline management of actionable regulatory intelligence and submissions planning; and
  2. Registration Tracking System (RTS) to streamline product registration management and interactions with health authorities worldwide.

GRIP allows for management of curated regulatory requirements (both hard and soft intelligence) in actionable ways through a master library of global requirements that are available as checklists for various regulatory and submission activities. These checklists can then be leveraged for understanding regulatory requirements, like preparing a clinical trial application or creating an NDA submission for a group of countries. These predefined checklists are based on health authority requirements and can be further modified by a regulatory strategist for a specific product based on product strategy and negotiations with respective health authorities. Made available as detailed plans with country regulations in mind, you can assign deliverables to different individuals for fulfilling the requirements. GRIP comes with web services which allows integration to downstream applications, such as document management and submission publishing. 

RTS allows the management of product registration information for various markets and related health authority interactions, such as correspondence or requests for information or commitments. RTS comes with web services which allows integration to upstream applications such as document management and submission publishing.
