They will talk about solutions to these challenges, demonstrating real world approaches derived from successful pharma company projects, and insights from Navitas’ industry leading networks pvnet® and labelnet®. Our networks are independent communities where life science leaders facing similar challenges exchange insights, compare performance, and debate strategies to tackle the latest hot issues. With over 100 members from the world’s leading life science companies, each network has a focused and evolving agenda to meet the latest challenges.

In addition, an approach to clarifying the current affiliate situation using an affiliate’s survey tool, as well as available in-house data sources will be presented. Also, how risk-assessment approaches can be applied to generate a clear view of systemic risk (exposure across all or many affiliates) and unique risks (exposure specific to one particular or a few local affiliates). Finally, methods to streamline PV affiliate processes and the benefits this approach provides to the enterprise with be highlighted.

Tuesday, June 28th 4:30pm: Denis Fung and Brenda Crowe of Eli Lilly will present “Improving Adverse Drug Reaction Information in Product Labels”.
