WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Commonwealth Informatics, an independently-operated subsidiary of Genpact, and leading technology and services company with industry expertise in medical product safety and public health surveillance, today announced that it has expanded its relationship with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), a medical regulatory body for the United Kingdom.

MHRA has selected Commonwealth Informatics' state-of-the-art signal detection and signal management solution, Commonwealth Vigilance Workbench (CVW), to support the MHRA transformation of safety monitoring through a single integrated platform across all medicines, vaccines, blood components and devices.

"The MHRA is looking to transform our vigilance services through new ways of working, underpinned by the technology we use and how we operate our services," said Mick Foy, Head of Pharmacovigilance Strategy at MHRA. "We see our partnership with CVW enabling us to deliver a more responsive safety surveillance system through innovative technology."

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to build on our longstanding research collaboration with the MHRA and deliver future value through greater efficiencies within signal detection," said Bill Blackwell, Commonwealth VP Safety Science Solutions. "The collaborative partnership will enable us, together with the MHRA, to bring new innovative methodologies to safety surveillance on behalf of patients."

Commonwealth's solution will be implemented to perform signal detection and signal management across multiple data sources leveraging advanced automation, such as artificial intelligence, to ensure more accurate multivigilance analysis and processing.  CVW is an integrated cloud-based signal management system supporting the detection, tracking and refinement of safety signals using evidence across multiple data sources.

The MHRA is deploying Insife's HALOPV solution for case processing management, advanced automation, and real-time reporting and analytics. Commonwealth Informatics has partnered with Insife, to integrate CVW with HALOPV and to collaboratively deploy the end-to-end multi-vigilance platform in Q2 2022.
