Change request to migrate records between two mediums

Mark Meer

Trusted Information Resource
Wondering if a change record would be prudent if migrating old records between two mediums (e.g. paper-to-electronic, or from one electronic system to another)?

Technically it is a change to the system, but on the other hand, the data will be the same...

For me, I will definitely issue a change record.

In the Pharma where I used to work, change request has a few functions
1. Risk assessment to identify potential problems and take preventive actions
2. Mode of communication
3. A record of what took place, where, when and by who.

I agree with lokeky1 about issuing a change request, mainly because of what you mentioned, Mark:

Technically it is a change to the system, but on the other hand, the data will be the same...

Verification checks in the change request allow you to show that the data remained the same and that there were no goofs in the data entry.
