Integrated Technology Solutions for Drug Safety
Technology has forever transformed the entire healthcare continuum and has ushered in new and revolutionary ways to ensure patient and consumer safety. It has also enabled organizations to achieve higher levels of insight, quality and efficiencies by driving down operational costs and rendering information in meaningful ways. Technology has weaved itself into safety operations by being a strategic element of worldwide pharmacovigilance (PV) systems, fundamentally altering the drug safety continuum. To enable transformation, one of the biggest challenges organizations face is how to effectively integrate the complexities of two seemingly separate functions, the technology know-how behind IT and the science behind Safety Operations. Companies that recognize the synergies of an integrated strategy and unified communication process will see greater success in managing the safety of their products, including proactive responses to problems and business priorities.
