An Automated Approach to Global Adverse Event Reporting in Pharmacovigilance

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical Regulation, Pharmaceutical, Drug Safety,
  • Friday, May 18, 2018

This webinar will discuss how you can automate complex document distributions to keep all involved parties – including health authorities, central and local ethics committees, investigative sites and the study team – informed about ongoing safety issues of an investigational medicinal product (IMP). It is a central obligation for the sponsor of a clinical trial to meet national regulations that must be followed when conducting regional and global clinical trials, which differ from region to region and country to country. By joining this webinar, you will learn how to handle these different requirements by using psiXchange in an elegant and timesaving way in the field of pharmacovigilance.

Featured speakers will provide insights into how:

  • Companies automate the distribution and dispatch of suspected unexpected serious adverse reactions (SUSARs) and other safety documents such as development safety update reports (DSURs) and expedited single and periodic safety documents, according to company-specific processes
  • Depending on system configuration, submission and oversight can be managed on a product basis and not only on a clinical trial basis, therefore removing the burden to coordinate different teams working on different clinical trials and allows for staff to focus on other more valuable activities
  • The tool interfaces with any safety database, accepts documents sent in from any external system or manual upload in any format (e.g. XML, PDF, XLS) and automatically handles specific distribution methods, such as fax, email, courier and E2B
  • You can overcome many traditional manual obstacles and track progress in real time with a full tracking and audit trail

At the end of this webinar, you will understand the benefits of using the tool and how your organization can proactively manage receipt acknowledgements, oversee distribution from a user-friendly dashboard and increase your overall compliance in a cost-effective way through automation.
