Biomedical Evidence is Essential

To successfully perform critical functions such as compliant adverse event reporting, systematic reviews for evidence-based medical decisions and drug and medical device efficacy studies, pharmaceutical and life sciences organizations require a wide array of current and historical biomedical evidence and information. The challenge lies in performing comprehensive searches efficiently so that research teams stay up to date.

Relevant and Accessible Biomedical Data and Literature

Embase is a crucial resource for discovering biomedical evidence within published, peer-reviewed literature, in-press publications and conference abstracts. Full-text indexing of drug, disease and medical device data — supported by Emtree — helps retrieve precise answers to search queries. Furthermore, Embase Classic — a repository of historical records — ensures that researchers see the full picture and make better-informed decisions.

Customizable alerts, RSS feeds and multiple data export possibilities are available to make it easy to keep track of drug and device adverse events and collaborate with colleagues. Embase is comprehensive and versatile — and recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration as a key database for systematic reviews.

Compliance with Drug Safety Regulations

Drug safety legislation is complex and ever changing, requiring strict compliance, and only efficient pharmacovigilance workflows can meet the stringent requirements of regulatory agencies. Pharmaceutical companies need a comprehensive solution that enables drug and disease information tracking and provides preclinical and clinical data to support risk management and mitigation decisions.
