Pharmaco- and Medical Device Vigilance Survey: what is the industry focused on?

Pharmaco- and Medical Device Vigilance Survey

Pharmaco- and Medical Device Vigilance Survey

Pharmaco- and Medical Device Vigilance Survey: what is the industry focused on?

New EudraVigilance, the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), Brexit, AI, and automation technologies – these are just a few topics that are actively being discussed for the last year. At our recent stakeholder update meeting organized with Oracle in Milan, we looked at some of these trends closely: experts from Arithmos, its sister company seQure and Oracle presented regulatory changes in Medical Device vigilance, new technologies in signal detection and change of demand in pharmacovigilance outsourcing.

We asked participants of the event, from pharmacovigilance to IT professionals of high seniority, to share their idea of the biggest challenges in pharmacovigilance, the most crucial trends and main decision factors for choosing the right vendor. This is what we learned.

What is the biggest challenge in pharmacovigilance in your opinion?

Most of the participants find implementing efficient safety system and database the biggest challenge. The second main challenge is ensuring quality in pharmacovigilance, which is followed by difficulties with the integration of the new technologies and coping with the regulatory landscape. The least widespread challenge is setting up an efficient signal system.

What is the most interesting Pharmaco- and Medical Device trend that you are following?

On the trends question the respondents are divided into three groups. The first and biggest group has chosen AI and Cloud technology as the most intriguing trend in the industry. However, during our stakeholder meeting revealed that most people are still unsure of the benefits of AI and how to manage it. The second place is divided between Medical Device Regulation and Automation technology.

Most interesting Pharmaco- and Medical Device trend

Which factors are the most important for you when it comes to a safety system solution?

Although the importance of different factors varies among the participants, the security and privacy factor was unanimously recognized as “very important”. Among other important factors are functionality, costs, scalability, and speed of implementation. This is one of the most significant changes we have seen over the past few years: the rise of concerns over data and information security and privacy. This further proves the importance of important security measures such as certifications, an Information Security Management System and a comprehensive GDPR compliance roadmap.

Conclusion

With the pharmaco- and medical device industry evolving at high speed, trends and hot topics in the industry also change very quickly. However, as the survey shows, most of the topics and issues that concern the industry have persisted for years, such as AI in healthcare, MDR, and privacy and security.

The interests and concerns of the industry heavily shape vendor selection and oversight and safety system solution requirements. Solutions that combine efficiency, security and quality are increasingly in demand on the market, yet they are not so easy to find.

Argus Blueprint, a pre-validated and preconfigured version of Oracle Argus Safety, is one of these solutions, as it guarantees highest quality and efficient performance. Backed by an ISO 27001 certified ISMS, it responds to the challenges and demands of the pharmaco- and medical device market.

Arithmos Successfully Completes ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Re-Certification

ISO 27001 Re-certification

ISO 27001 re-certificationArithmos Successfully Completes ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Re-Certification

Verona, Italy (19/02/19) 

Arithmos is pleased to announce that, following a thorough audit by a competent authority, it has successfully earned re-certification for the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard regarding its Information Security Management System (ISMS).

ISO/IEC 27001:2013  is the best-known international standard for the implementation of an Information Security Management System which includes key processes such as business continuity and disaster recovery. The standard also takes a systematic approach to risk in order to ensure  information security and protection – an area which Arithmos sees as absolutely critical in today’s life sciences landscape.

The re-certification of ISMS is an important step in Arithmos’ internal GDPR compliance roadmap. The EU General Data Protection Regulation, specifically Article 32, requires ongoing confidentiality, integrity and availability of processing systems and services as well as a process for risk mitigation.

Paolo Morelli, CEO of Arithmos, says, “in our experience managing clinical and safety data, we are aware of the importance and necessity of data privacy and data security in the era of digital transformation in healthcare. This is why we have invested heavily not only in an internationally recognized standard such as ISO 27001, but also in detailed internal procedures and a comprehensive roadmap that ensure GDPR compliance and peace of mind for our customers that their data and information are always secure and compliant. Today it’s more than an added-value, it’s a necessity”.

As a “data processor”, Arithmos takes necessary measures to ensure data privacy and security for all of its products and applications. The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard applies to Arithmos’ proprietary electronic data capture (EDC) system, Symphony EDC, third party EDC applications, Oracle Argus Blueprint safety system, clinical data reporting and analysis tools as well as its HelpDesk ticketing platform.

About Wings for Life

Every eight hours someone in the UK sustains a spinal cord injury and most become wheelchair users as a result. Spinal cord injury affects people of all ages and backgrounds and is most commonly caused through road traffic accidents, falls, illness or sports. Spinal cord injury happens in a moment, but the impact lasts a lifetime. After an injury, most people live through months if not years of rehabilitative therapy. There is currently no medical treatment available to repair the injured spinal cord.

Wings for Life fund world class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at finding a cure for spinal cord injury. Since being founded 170 spinal cord research projects have been funded at the world’s most well-respected institutes and a number of vital breakthroughs have been made.

Wings for Life’s research focuses on how to minimize damage, stimulate repair and restore function after an injury to the spinal cord has been sustained. The developments so far provide strong hope that treatment options are closer than they have ever been. However, intensive research work is needed before a breakthrough in human medicine can be achieved.

When you support Wings for Life, 100% of the money you donate will go to directly to spinal cord injury research as the charity’s founders generously cover all of the administrative costs.
