Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019 • 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST

Apellis Pharmaceuticals shares their experience on quickly moving to a comprehensive and validated cloud safety solution. With one system for case intake, case processing, reporting, submissions, and all document management activities, such as pharmacovigilance safety master file (PSMF) and pharmacovigilance (PV) agreements, pharmacovigilance processes are consolidated, simplified, and streamlined. The safety team can perform many different activities without having to switch between multiple applications: search for duplicates, view any case version, create user-specific line listings and visualizations, seamlessly drill down into the case narrative, see previous edits, revisions and annotations, electronically submit ICSRs and exchange case reports with business partners, and create aggregate report data and written content based on company-specific templates.

Cloud also enables all parties to easily engage on the same platform, promoting greater oversight and alignment. Apellis can provide specific access to partners or internal teams access, supporting collaboration while controlling what users see or do in the application.

Learn how Apellis evaluated a pharmacovigilance system and why they chose a modern solution including:

  • Evaluation criteria as well as benefits and risks of a cloud application
  • How operations are simplified with a unified pharmacovigilance solution
  • Enabling a flexible operating model to easily support change in vendors or responsibilities
  • Vision for how safety will interact with different functional areas across the value chain with a modern platform
