Envision Pharma Group launches Medinfo™ – a new purpose-built software solution for medical information
Glastonbury, USA, March 20, 2017 – Envision Pharma Group ("Envision"), a leading Medical Affairs-focused scientific communications and technology solutions provider, is pleased to announce the launch of Medinfo™ – a new purpose-built software solution for pharmaceutical medical information functions and associated professional contact center service providers.
Medinfo is a complete, globally scalable solution that transparently and compliantly manages the provision of medical information to healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers, and other enquirers. Medinfo is currently being implemented at several companies.
Medinfo is built on the iEnvision™ platform and is part of the integrated suite of iEnvision solutions, purpose-built to meet the needs of Medical Affairs and related functions. Medinfo can be fully integrated with other iEnvision solutions such as Datavision® (publications management), Library™ (scientific content asset management), and Clear® (system-managed clearance and approval processing), as well as other third-party and corporate applications including CRM, other CMS, pharmacovigilance, and product quality systems.
Validation, audit, and transparency reporting requirements are a key aspect, with standard Medinfo implementations being validated to Software Validation Process 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant GxP Standards. Further client-configured validation support is available.
Medinfo was developed in-house at Envision as a specific medical information solution under the guidance of a team of senior medical information specialists with over 35 years cumulative experience in hands-on, industry-based medical information roles. This was combined with Envision’s 15-year experience in providing medical request- and scientific communications-related technology solutions to create a robust, advanced, and purpose-specific solution for medical information needs.
Medinfo provides a next generation medical information solution comprising multichannel request intake using an integrated web portal, streamlined and simplified enquiry management processing with adverse event and product quality intake capabilities, system-suggested response generation support, and robust content creation and management facilities. Built-in analytical features including dashboards, metrics, and reporting enable insights to be captured, this in turn, can inform and improve response quality, as well as future data and evidence generation requirements. Medinfo quickly and efficiently helps get the right answer to the enquirer and enables actionable insights to improve future responses. In addition, the Operational Excellence Consulting arm of Envision is able to provide complementary standard response medical writing and implementation support services.
