Patient-Centric Pharmacovigilance: Building Better Outcomes Through Integrated Technology, Live Webinar Hosted by Xtalks on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 11am EDT (NA) / 3pm GMT (UK) / 4pm CET (EU-Central)

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 21, 2014) - Pharmacovigilance (PV) is the science and process of monitoring the safety of medicines, taking action to reduce the risks and increase the benefits of medicines to patients and maintaining regulatory compliance. As biopharmaceutical companies increasingly seek to achieve global patient access, there is a need to develop PV procedures and systems that go beyond the strict confines of safety signal detection to provide for proactive benefit/risk management and optimized oversight.

In adapting to this changing landscape, biopharma PV capabilities must:

  • Establish a process that ensures global consistency and compliance while maintaining flexibility to support local market requirements
  • Support a wide variety of regulatory authority timelines and requirements, as well as partnership agreements
  • Monitor quality and compliance, in near real-time, to address potential issues as quickly as they are identified
  • Bridge data access and analytics between study-based safety and post-marketing safety to provide a holistic view of a product's safety profile
  • Incorporate ongoing learning and training to ensure staff are current on changing regulatory requirements and commitments

Technology is a key enabler for development of a global adverse event (AE) processing and reporting strategy. While commercially available software can effectively provide essential AE processing and reporting capabilities, there is an increasing need for the incorporation of technology integration, reporting and analytical components to deliver optimal outcomes for patients.

In this webinar, Quintiles' experts will discuss guidance and best practices to help you:

  • Create analytics and dashboards to monitor and track the quality and compliance of case processing
  • Leverage operational and case processing data to maintain proper case routing, staff performance and efficiencies
  • Track and manage partnership agreements to ensure reporting and inclusion commitments are maintained
  • Contribute to the larger product development process and strategy with integrated safety data visibility

Improve your probability of success. Join the conversation led by Mark Vermette , Vice President of IT Customer Engagement at Quintiles, and Annette Williams , Senior Director of Pharmacovigilance Services, Lifecycle Safety at Quintiles.
