Paperless laboratory do better science

In the first of his three reports from the Paperless Lab Academy (PLA), which took place in Amsterdam, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World,  considers the importance of managing change and the limits to data sharing.

Gayle Dagnell, of the contract research organisation Evotec, summed up a central message of the Paperless Lab Academy in Amsterdam earlier this week, when she observed:

People initially did not want to change. But after implementation of a new informatics system within the organisation, 100 per cent said they did not want to go back to the old way of doing things.

As the PLA’s chairman, Peter Boogaard remarked, the comment encapsulated the theme of the meeting

moving from a paper-based to a paperless laboratory, successful implementation depends as much on successful  “change management” among the staff affected by the move as on the details of the technology itself.

Gayle Dagnell, de Evotec una CRO internacional con sede en Alemania, resumió en un mensaje central el Paperless Lab Academy en Amsterdam cuando observó:

En un inicio, las personas no quieren cambia. Pero después de la puesta en marcha de un nuevo sistema informático en la organización, absolutamente todos dijeron no querer a hacer las cosas como antes.

El presidente del Paperless Lab Academy, Peter Boogaard resaltó que el comentario encapsula el tema principal de la reunión –

Cuando se trata de pasar de un sistema basado en papel a uno sin o con menos papel en un laboratorio,  el éxito de la implementación depende tanto del éxito de la “gestión del cambio” para todo el personal afectado como por los detalles de la tecnología en sí.
