“Advera Health has built the big data solution that pharmacovigilance professionals have been waiting for – an easy-to-use platform to analyze, visualize, and find meaning in the accelerating volume of safety cases that are diligently documented and reported every day during development and post-marketing,” said Suneet Walia, President and CEO of APCER Life Sciences. “We are proud to become an exclusive partner to Advera and equip our safety and outcomes scientists with the Evidex platform to enhance the value we bring to our clients in signal detection, comparative safety reviews, and market access research.” 

Advera’s Evidex™ is a scalable, simple-to-use, web-based data and analytics platform that provides comprehensive coverage on the safety profiles of both approved and clinical stage drugs. Evidex features peer-reviewed, proprietary analytics, focused on safety signal detection and management. Its analytics are built upon core data assets from curated clinical trial results, the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS), and client-provided data. Additionally, direct downstream medical cost calculations and outcomes analyses allow the impact of a product’s safety profile to be effectively communicated to all stakeholders.  APCER’s clients will have the opportunity to utilize Advera’s Evidex™ platform and advisory services to better identify, manage, and communicate safety risks.

”As a leader in its field, APCER Life Sciences has recognized that proactive signal management, comparative safety research, real-world evidence generation, and commercial planning support are the areas that represent the future for pharmacovigilance,” said Brian M. Overstreet, president and CEO of Advera Health Analytics.  “We are very pleased to partner with APCER Life Sciences, whose deep expertise in this market will help to inform our future development and accelerate the roll out of our services to meet the growing demand within their client base.”

The announcement of the partnership coincides with the opening of the DIA Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies conference in Washington, DC, an annual forum that brings together industry, academia, regulators, and patient representatives for thought-provoking sessions and candid discussion of common challenges.  Representatives of APCER Life Sciences and Advera Health Analytics will be on hand through Wednesday to debut the partnership and discuss their solutions at Table 11 in the Exhibitor Ballroom.
