Informing the Investigator: Reduce Liability Risk and Improve Patient Safety through Automated SUSAR Processing

  • Thursday, February 20, 2014

For patient safety all pharmaceutical companies are required to inform clinical trial investigators of any SUSARs or SAEs within 7-14 days of being identified. Good clinical practice guidelines, however, suggest that investigators should be informed even quicker (within 24-48 hours). This can be a significant challenge for any organization, but even more so when an organization has a deep development pipeline and works with sites across many geographical boundaries, each with unique country-specific requirements on patient safety.

Automating SUSAR distribution and reporting can improve patient safety and regulatory compliance, while reducing the manual effort and costs typically involved.

This webinar will review the benefits of leveraging a secure collaboration platform to ensure distribution of patient safety documents to sites and other parties across the globe, while reducing notification time from days to hours. Real-world examples from top pharmaceutical companies will be presented.
