This presentation reviews the background and drivers for making the decision - when to outsource pharmacovigilance work. There are several schools of thought on how best to handle safety data as well as who should be involved. Additionally, much has been discussed about the pros and cons to outsourcing and especially off-shoring so that it can be difficult to separate anecdotes from the past from today’s reality. These days much has changed; the key is finding the right partner.

This presentation takes a step-by-step approach to objectively balancing the need to reduce costs with confidence that compliance can safely be maintained and efficiencies gained by utilizing outsourcing models. The most common outsourcing and off-shoring models are discussed in this session in order to provide detailed and practical tips for ensuring that the chosen service provider fits with our company’s needs.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  •     Recognize the challenges Sponsors face with finding solutions to improve efficiencies objectives across multiple internal stakeholders
  •     Understand different outsourcing and off-shoring models
  •     Discuss the changing environment and benefits of strategic partnerships
  •     Describe optimal oversight and techniques for managing at distance
  •     Apply realistic expectations to the inclusion of “outside staff” in your team
  •     Describe the key steps in meaningful measurement of quality and performance as it relates to the overall management of product safety
  •     Understand where to focus in-house resources to support change

A Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
