AHM delivers CentrisConnectTM as a single resource center portal to streamline compliant interactions between Healthcare Professionals and Life Science Companies

New Providence, NJ, October 9, 2014– AHM, today announced the release of CentrisConnectTM, a cloud-based portal solution designed to streamline compliant interactions between life science companies and Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Organizations (HCOs). CentrisConnectTM acts as a one-stop-shop resource center by consolidating disparate sources of interaction information into a single portal that can be accessed via the web – across any device. As a result, life science companies and HCPs are able to share information and communicate in a compliant manner.
“Today, life science companies interact with HCPs and HCOs in many different ways as part of their business process that may result in a transfer of value”, said Senthil Namasivayam, VP Global Solutions Management at AHM. “These interactions are often required to go through a number of business and compliance processes in order to comply with corporate policies and procedures, industry guidelines and/or local/federal regulations. In cases like fee-for-service engagements, such as speaker programs, consulting and advisory boards, processes often require HCP involvement. In other cases, the HCP may be notified or provided with information such as spend pre-disclosure to follow a company’s approach to regulatory reporting such as Sunshine, EFPIA, and data privacy requirements. These various interaction points can often present challenges for life science companies who are looking to centralize and streamline interactions to enable compliance, enhance operational efficiency, and improve customer service.”
CentrisConnectTM leverages AHM’s leading-edge compliance platform, CentrisDirectTM; offering a robust configuration of business rules and associated business processes to empower life science companies to tailor CentrisConnectTM to their organizational needs.

“Today the health care industry faces intensifying policy and regulation causing life science companies to implement necessary controls to effectively manage and monitor their interactions with HCPs,” said Nigel Whitehead, AHM CEO. “It is important that any HCP interaction with financial components are not only carefully monitored and controlled to meet compliance requirements, but provide information that is consolidated, reliable, easily accessible, and results in a positive customer experience”.
CentrisConnectTM is available now and has received significant interest from the market with implementations currently under way and others scheduled for 2015.
