Quintiles has been named to the 2014 CIO 100 for its transformational Quintiles Infosario Safety solution, a drug safety technology platform which is fully integrated with relevant regulatory agencies and future-proofed through a community development model.
“We are honored to be included in the CIO 100 for our work helping solve industry and customer challenges,” said Quintiles CIO Richard Thomas. “Introduced in 2011, our award-winning Infosario solutions combine our deep scientific and operational expertise with industry-leading technology innovations that improve our customers’ probability of success at every step of the way.”
During development of Quintiles Infosario Safety, the company consolidated more than 35 individual drug safety systems and pooled a wide range of best practices and processes to create a highly optimised and efficient operating model to help its biopharmaceutical customers ensure that all regulatory requirements for drug safety management are met on a global basis. Quintiles then developed an entire portfolio of safety applications, regulatory agency integrations and implementation accelerators virtualised and deployed in its private cloud, securely available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via web browser.
This success led to the introduction of a platform that provides customers with benefits including, but not limited to massive cost reductions versus legacy solutions, automated regulatory agency and partner integration, guaranteed information exchange, comprehensive safety capabilities and best-of-breed processes, enhanced regulatory and operational reporting capabilities, enhanced compliance and a secure environment, guaranteeing patient privacy and pharma confidentiality.
“Patient safety is a top priority for us, just as it is for our customers. Infosario Safety helps conquer some of the complexity involved in safeguarding patients. We believe technology innovation must be focused on success in human measures, ” adds Thomas.
