Oracle Argus Affiliate resolves a major obstacle for global pharmaceutical companies—the integration of affiliate sites into the global business process and case workflow. Argus Affiliate works in tandem with Oracle Argus Safety to seamlessly integrate local affiliate sites into the worldwide safety workflow via a single case database. The central safety department retains control of the environment and the ability to provide restricted access. It therefore also provides a convenient way to integrate contract research organizations (CROs) in the safety reporting process.
Argus Affiliate delivers productivity improvements and immediate return on investment by eliminating redundant data entry, paper shuffling, and the need for fax and e-mail communications. This Web-based module utilizes Argus Safety's central database and does not require additional resources to maintain the system.
Offering local processing with central visibility, Argus Affiliate allows case data entry at the source, a complete case review, and acceptance of the case into the central database, as well as determination whether a case is reportable—all at the local level. Affiliate sites receive only cases that are specific to the local site, and users manage and track only the cases that are specific to their workflow. The central safety department retains full visibility and insight into all affiliate sites and decisions.
