Augmenting Safety Services to Better Support Clients
Novella Clinical, Inc., a Quintiles company, is a full-service clinical research organization and an active partner to the oncology, medical device and biotech industries.
MIGRATING AND UPGRADING TO A BETTER PLACE
Novella wanted to augment safety services within its global safety management department to better support its pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device clients. The safety department serves Novella’s primary client base across drug, vaccine and device studies to support the collection, assessment and reporting of serious adverse events (SAEs).
After reviewing the available technology to support its needs, Novella selected Argus Safety, Oracle's comprehensive safety database and regulatory reporting system. Perficient then completed a data migration of approximately 1,500 cases from Novella’s previous safety application, as well as 14 upgrades of older Oracle Argus Safety databases to a single, multitenant, Oracle Argus Safety system.
With the upgrade, Novella improved safety-database and regulatory-reporting system efficiencies to more effectively support global, safety data collection and risk management across its business. Further, Argus Safety could now offer customizable reports across multiple datasets, allowing for a more comprehensive data review, which is essential with the heightened regulatory emphasis in the life sciences industry.
