  • Deploying best practices for GxP configurations to deliver greater productivity and efficiency within your organization.
  • Training and organizational change management (OCM) by USDM drives user adoption and maximizes your Veeva ROI.

Annual Vendor Audit

Annually, as part of the USDM Cloud Assurance service and to replace the need for individual audits, Veeva hosts USDM as an independent, qualified third-party to audit their design, development, testing, qualification, and maintenance methodologies. The audit is specifically scoped to the Veeva Systems infrastructure and the various Veeva Vaults to ensure compliance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) software compliance standards.

Results of the audit are compiled into the Veeva Vendor Assurance Report, which is a comprehensive reference document that provides a summary of the audit, cites all source material reviewed during the audit, and provides direct links to all publicly available content.

Additional USDM Services

In addition to Cloud Assurance services, USDM offers post go-live support via best practices guidance, managed services, and validation support for enhancements, including:

  • Release Notes Risk Assessment USDM analyzes Veeva release notes and assesses the impact to your specific configurations and deployments. You get a tailored-made risk assessment.
  • Updated Test Cases – Based on the risk assessment, we draft test scripts for USDM Cloud Assurance subscribers.
  • Change Control Authoring and Processing – For Premium subscribers, USDM manages the change control process for each Veeva release.
  • Test Case Execution – For Premium subscribers, USDM executes the required test cases according to internal policies and procedures, and industry best practices.
