Are you debating whether or not to implement extended reality solutions within your GxP biopharma environment? Then this BioPhorum Report is for you:

Risk considerations for the implementation of extended reality solutions within a GxP environment in the biopharma industry

Take a look inside to find out what critical elements to consider before deployingAR/VR technology within your organization.

What’s Inside

This report will give you access to the latest industry insights on AR/VR in the biopharma space:

Deploying Extended Reality in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Extended reality (XR) is a term used to encompass different types of immersive technologies that integrate both digital and physical environments. It includes augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR).

XR solutions are often linked to home entertainment and the gaming industry; however, they are becoming more common in the workplace in various industries, including healthcare and biopharma. When implementing this technology in GxP environments, careful thought must be given to the risks associated with deployment.

Risk Assessment: The Experts Weigh In

Leading industry experts, including Apprentice, worked together to develop this BioPhorum paper to highlight the risk considerations in different categories such as:

  • Organizational interest
  • Local country laws
  • Company policies
  • IT hardware/software standards

The report also includes risk/impact statements to provide context for the risks being considered.

The risk considerations are intended to support traditional risk assessment processes. It also provides the areas of risk for IT professionals and users of these technologies at biopharma organizations to consider when developing the technology internally or implementing an off-the-shelf product.
