The Customer

The customer is one of the leading multinational pharma companies headquartered in France. They are the world's fifth largest seller of pharmaceutical drugs in the prescription market. They are the biggest producer of vaccines and they also focus to establish themselves in the consumer health sector. The client is working toward affordable access and quality care to ensure underserved populations receive the treatments they need.

Challenges

  1. Complexities and delays in completing the late ICSR investigations on time
  2. The existing process of communicating via email using MS Word to obtain RCA and CAPA was cumbersome and time-consuming
  3. Missing information and data discrepancies were rampant due to the use of static MS Word form
  4. Manual steps had to be performed to evaluate the performance of the stakeholders

The Solution

Indegene deployed a web-based SharePoint application and electronic lateness documentation form (e-LDF). The platform is used to communicate and obtain the RCA and CAPA from the deviation owners. We established robust workflows integrated for late ICSR assignments for compliance managers to investigate, provision to add required queries inside the e-LDF form, and automated reminders and alert messages to compliance managers and deviation owners. The provision for automated escalation management for the delay in responses from deviation owners was also implemented.
