IQVIA Announces Comprehensive Multi-Tenant SaaS Safety Platform for Life Sciences Industry

IQVIA™ (NYSE:IQV) today announced its development of a Software as a Service (SaaS) safety platform that scales to address the drug safety and surveillance challenges of life sciences organizations, ranging from emerging biopharma to large pharmaceutical companies. This SaaS solution is built to allow access from multiple users, across multiple locations and will run on the Salesforce architecture, the global leader in CRM and provider of SaaS solutions.

“Drug safety organizations are burdened with outdated technology that is inflexible and costly to maintain,” said Joe Rymsza, vice president, Pharmacovigilance and Regulatory Technology Solutions at IQVIA. “Our safety platform will leverage IQVIA’s industry knowledge and advanced analytics to provide a step-change in operations and will allow our customers to focus on the critical task of improving patient safety.”

IQVIA’s multi-tenant safety platform will combine IQVIA’s deep domain expertise, three thousand plus drug safety professionals, and innovative process automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies, with IQVIA’s real world and regulatory data to deliver actionable insights and streamline pharmacovigilance operations.

A fundamental addition for IQVIA Technologies, the SaaS platform will eliminate the need for costly upgrade projects and long validation cycles. By leveraging automation to eliminate the costly and repetitive manual processes associated with pharmacovigilance, organizations will be able to evolve to zero-touch processing.

“IQVIA is strategically committed to providing our customers with comprehensive pharmacovigilance technology and operational services,” said Tal Rosenberg, senior vice president, Global Technology Solutions at IQVIA. “This safety platform adds a transformative dimension to our molecule-to-market technology suite.”
