As we know, pharmaceuticals are big business – huge! Worth millions if not billions, scientists, researchers, engineers, doctors and corporate sales are determined to invest in life saving medicines. Over the last few centuries there has been an astonishing amount of data, research and findings within the industry and now, Formedix have made digital storage for those in the industry to look back on previous findings, named – Clinical Metadata Repository.
Publicizing Clinical Trials
The UN are calling for all public sharing of clinical trials in the US, which followed on from the US Department of Health & Human Services bid to make law that sharing the research of clinical trials must be published. Since January 2017, it has been mandatory in the US to publicize Phase 2 and 3 trials to ClinicalTrials.gov to ensure trials that were successful were properly passed. Phase 1 trials are usually safety trials so the fact that these won’t be publicized
There are some worries that publicizing the metadata will enable competitors to create similar products and complete on a price basis. However by holding all the data in one Clinical Metadata Repository will ensure no data gets lost -which could save someones life. Holding the data could also help future researchers in creating a more improved medication.
We live in a digitally connected world, therefore we can converse with talented scientists, engineers, researchers, sales reps and doctors across the globe. Putting metadata out to the public will mean colleagues within the industry will have access to the data and discuss possible improvements and new ideas – meaning the possibilities are endless. Medicine has evolved and improved thanks to technology and innovation and the idea that metadata can be shared to help others across the globe is appealing and attractive in the industry.
Better Consumer Relationship
The challenge the sales reps across this industry is competition. With so many pharmaceuticals companies trying to compete with each other many doctors or customers struggle to even believe what the sales rep is trying to sell. Publicizing the metadata on a clinical metadata repository gives evidence that sales can show consumers who are sceptical of the product. This will eventually mean more sales and more money to create and improve life changing pharmaceuticals.
Clinical Metadata Repository technology is beneficial in the healthcare, technology and pharmaceutical industries all over the world. With Sales reps, doctors, engineers, pharmacists, researchers and scientists improving their practices and saving peoples lives.
