Risk Management

Developing an efficient risk management system for proactive risk assessment and continued safety surveillance

Every therapeutic modality has associated risks. These risks, if not managed well, can pose threat to patient safety or even public health, and regulators take this very seriously. Regulators have mandated proactive risk assessments and continuous safety surveillance for therapeutic products throughout their life cycle. An efficient risk minimization system lays out a systematic platform on which the pharmacovigilance plan and risk–benefit analysis is characterized for any drug.
