We are pleased to announce that we have formed a partnership with PRIMO – the Pharmaceutical Records and Information Management Organization. PRIMO is a consortium of pharmaceutical companies committed to developing and advancing records and information management programs in the pharmaceutical industry.

This powerful collaboration comes at a time when C-level executives are being pressed with daunting issues surrounding effective information governance.

PRIMO works to address these challenges and improve information governance within the pharmaceutical industry by conducting benchmarking, developing compliance tools and good-practice approaches to records and information management, and promoting workable RIM standards.

The partnership will promote our two major conferences this year, our two-day Inaugural CIGO Summit, which kicks off in Chicago on May 20 and InfoGovCon, which takes place in Hartford, Conn. from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.

PRIMO is an official partner of not just the IGI but of the CIGO Summit and InfoGovCon as well. Jean Zuiker, Associate Director, Records Programs at PRIMO member Takeda Pharmaceuticals, will participate on behalf of PRIMO during our CIGO Summit.

We will work to bring our research and content to PRIMO members, and, in turn, they will share with us the unique information management challenges and opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry, in addition to sharing information and best practices.

IGI Advisory Board member Sylvia Diaz is the current chair of PRIMO. Last year, on behalf of PRIMO, Diaz attended a dinner we held during the MER (Managing Electronic Records) Conference. The dinner was also attended by 30 corporate guests and sponsored by our Charter Supporters OpenText and Nuix. Diaz also participated in our Boot Camp this past February at Cardozo School of Law during LegalTech week.

“The IGI is making an important contribution to increasing the awareness of information governance, and we are excited to participate and support this vital work,” Diaz said. “The IGI and PRIMO are excited about this partnership and look forward to working together.”
