News R-Pharm and Flex Databases to present poster on data empowered decision making at DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting in San Diego

Flex Databases, a company specializing in software & consulting services for the healthcare industry, announced today that R-Pharm, a Russian pharmaceutical company, will be presenting a poster on data empowered decision making at DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting in San Diego, USA. The poster has been jointly prepared by R-Pharm and Flex Databases and reflects the experience of implementation of the Flex Databases software platform by R-Pharm.

“There were several questions we needed to solve while scaling our activities and growing the number of projects at R-Pharm”, says Mikhail Samsonov, Chief Medical Officer at R-Pharm. “How do we keep track of all our projects, regardless of what stage or functional area they belong to? How do we make sure we maintain the quality of work as new people join? And, most importantly, how do we obtain data for decision making, while not spending unreasonably high amount of time to produce and consolidate reports? Flex Databases offered answers to all these questions. We now have a platform which provides a project library and a flexible workflow tool, enabling us to obtain real time project status information and guide activities of our employees at each step. The platform is used to manage and implement projects from a variety of functional areas (Chemistry Manufacturing Control, due diligence, clinical development and operations, regulatory and pharmacovigilance). We are keen to share the knowledge we generated as we believe the industry as a whole could benefit from a move to company-wide platforms, as benefits far outweigh the investment needed. Moreover, growing biotech companies and startups could especially benefit using such approach”.
