Nurses Make it All Better: Easing the Pain of Adverse Event Reporting

Whether your end-customers are pharmaceutical, medical technology or consumer package goods companies, they may be struggling to comply with Adverse Event Reporting requirements.

Adverse Event Reporting (AER) is a serious responsibility and compliance requirement for pharmaceutical firms. It can also be a real administrative burden. An adverse event is defined as:

“Any untoward medical occurrence that may present during treatment with a pharmaceutical product but which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.” [from Farlex partner Medical Dictionary and the International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use,]

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) requires pharmaceutical firms to file Adverse Event Reports to the FDA within 24 hours of becoming aware of the event (which can be extended up to 72 hours during holidays).  This means they must have rigorous processes for monitoring, data integration, and compliance.  It requires both medical and coding expertise, and a broad enough team to span the globe and react quickly.

Good news: you don’t have to go it alone.
