BioPharm Systems, a leading global IT consulting and managed services provider (MSP) specializing in Oracle Health Sciences applications, today announced that Keisuke (KC) Katsuyama and Christina Wocosky joined the company’s Safety and Pharmacovigilance practice.

Mr. Katsuyama will oversee BioPharm’s Oracle Argus Safety Japan (Argus J) implementations, and contribute to other safety system implementation and integration projects. His in-depth knowledge of the system, as well as Japan’s regulatory requirements, will allow him to understand the crucial needs of sponsors and CROs that do business in the country.

Prior to joining BioPharm, Mr. Katsuyama was a consultant at Oracle specializing in Argus J and served as the product manager for the solution during his time at Relsys.

With over 25 years of experience in the life sciences industry and as an expert in signal detection and management, Ms. Wocosky will oversee implementations of Oracle's Empirica Signal and Empirica Topics, and play a role in other safety system implementation projects. Her knowledge of these applications, as well as the industry's ever-changing pharmacovigilance guidelines, will be an invaluable asset to clients.

Prior to joining BioPharm, Ms. Wocosky worked at Oracle, Phase Forward, J&J, Boston Scientific, and Edwards Lifesciences.

“KC and Chris bring a wealth of safety, pharmacovigilance, and signal detection experience to BioPharm,” said Dr. Rodney Lemery, vice president of safety and pharmacovigilance. “As we grow, we continue to deepen our team with talented and distinguished industry experts.”
