Pegasystems Life Sciences Solution Enhances Collaboration and Automates Compliance

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – February 14, 2011Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in business process management (BPM) solutions, today announced its new Life Sciences Industry Foundation, to help improve compliance efficiency through improved collaboration and automation. The new solution will be demonstrated in Booth #208 at the DIA EDM Conference on Feb. 15-17 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

Life Sciences organizations have to cut the cost, time and complexity of bringing safe and effective products to market. They must also comply with increasingly stringent and constantly changing global and regional regulations.  To meet these challenges they need a software solution that can both increase collaboration and reduce cycle times for many processes across multiple lines of business.

The new Pegasystems solution automates and optimizes key business processes to support FDA 21 CFR Part 11, allows organizations to more seamlessly connect to electronic document management systems, and quickly generates regulatory PDF forms such as MedWatch 3500A and FDA 1571.  It also enables auditable content distribution including sponsor, healthcare professional and regulator correspondence. 

Highlights & Key Facts:

The Life Sciences Industry Foundation:

  • Supports frequently changing global regulations in clinical, safety, sales and marketing and  compliance initiatives, leveraging Pega’s dynamic business rules capability;
  • Improves visibility and transparency across the enterprise for spend management and clinical activities, by providing comprehensive authentication and auditing capabilities as well as the generation of required internal, federal, state and Sunshine Act reports;

Melonie Warfel, Principal, Life Sciences Industry Solutions, Pegasystems

“Now, more than ever, it’s crucial for life sciences organizations to extend the value of their existing systems, so they can both ensure compliance and exploit new market opportunities at the speed of their business.  Far too often, there are execution gaps that negatively impact the levels of efficiency and transparency they need to solve their business problems.”
