Compliant workflow management for pharmacovigilance

Pharmacovigilance groups depend on targeted, up-to-date product information and adverse event reporting to meet regulatory requirements. However, workflows become overcomplicated due to increasing amounts of data, multiple information sources lacking integration and standardized search and alert functions. What’s more, with global teams, oversight can be challenging.
