Ensure Continuous Patient Safety in an Evolving Pharmacovigilance Environment

Failure to identify an adverse event comes with high costs for patients and pharma and medical device companies. Threats to patient safety, hefty fines from regulatory authorities and potential damage to a company’s reputation are all risks stemming from both a failure to predict as well as a failure to monitor and respond quickly when an adverse event is detected.

Elsevier R&D Solutions helps pharma companies maintain patient safety and regulatory compliance with strategies and tools to proactively monitor and analyze the everexpanding library of biomedical literature.
