Industry-Specific Solution Streamlines PDMA Mandated Compliance Activities
BEDMINSTER, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 30, 2015 — BuzzeoPDMA, a Cegedim Company, today announced that it will be providing enhanced Field Inventory Services through the use of a newly-developed electronic solution for capturing inventory and sample storage information from sales representatives in the field.
Field Inventory Specialists Streamline Processes with New Technology
With an increase in government scrutiny, it is imperative for life sciences companies to have efficient systems for their Prescription Drug Marketing Act (PDMA) sample compliance programs. An electronic capture solution for field inventory events streamlines processes, minimizes impact on sales representatives, and enhances data reliability over more manual methods.
BuzzeoPDMA’s electronic capture solution enables data entry of sample inventory and storage information via bar code scanner or keypad, and also supports electronic signature capture of both the field inventory specialist and the sales representatives. Inventory and storage results are sent instantly to BuzzeoPDMA’s web based tracking tool, and can be accessed any time. Summary reports of field events are also emailed to home office staff, giving them almost real time updates of events with details such as field specialist conducting the audit, sales representative audited, physical inventory of samples, storage information and signature capture of both field specialist and sales representative.
"We are very excited to offer this enhancement to our clients,” stated Paul Hamby, Senior Director of Compliance Solutions at BuzzeoPDMA. “Not only will it streamline compliance processes, but it will enhance data quality while getting information to clients on a timelier basis."
BuzzeoPDMA's sample management services include sample fulfillment, sample reconciliations, PDMA training, and a sample accountability solution, Sample Guardian™, which provides a 360-degree view of all sample activity. Tracing its roots back to 1991, BuzzeoPDMA, an industry leader, also offers many other compliance services including state license validation, computer systems validation, suspicious order monitoring, regulatory training, and comprehensive DEA and FDA consulting.
