New White Paper Explores How Big Data Enables Better Pharmacovigilance

PharmacovigilanceWARREN, NJ – August 5, 2015 – Knowledgent, the data and analytics firm, today announced a new white paper that highlights the advantages of leveraging big data in pharmacovigilance.

Biopharmaceutical companies are seeing a surge in the amount of data generated and made available to identify better targets, better design clinical trials, enable translational science, and better position products in the market.

Data is being generated from two different sources – science-based data from laboratories including genomics and proteomics data, and real world data from Electronic Health Records (EHRs), claims, wearables, surveys conducted by market research, and social media.

“Biopharmaceuticals can derive significant value and competitive advantage by using data in all parts of their value chain,” said Tom Johnstone, Life Sciences Partner, Knowledgent. “The value propositions are clear: faster and better insights.”

Titled, “Big Data Enabling Better Pharmacovigilance”, this white paper begins with examples of big data sources and the benefits of using such data across the value chain. Then, using pharmacovigilance as an example, the paper delves into approaches of using big data and building a synergy between traditional and big data analytics.
