New Providence, NJ, March 30, 2016 – AHM today announced that it has begun engaging with pharmaceutical companies in China as part of a broader initiative to support the growing compliance needs in the Asia-Pacific region.
China has a complex regime of laws relating to compliance. One recent area of prominence relates to anti-corruption requirements, which are largely embodied in the Anti-Unfair Competition Law and in criminal statutes. The latter puts particular focus on bribery in the public sector, which in China includes many large government-owned enterprises. Under the current Chinese administration, there have been more anti-corruption prosecutions than in the past, meaning those undertaking business in China need to be especially cognizant of compliance concerns, whether in their home country or the People’s Republic.
“Pharmaceutical companies in China have identified the critical need for compliant meetings and event management solutions due to growing regulatory focus and active enforcement measures,” said Nigel Whitehead, CEO of AHM. “We believe that our experience in the US market is resulting in the engagement by our clients to cover an increasing number of international markets such as China”.
AHM will be hosting its first Asia-Pac conference at the Swissotel Grand Shanghai on April 28, 2016 in Shanghai, China. The conference will focus on the compliance challenges faced by pharmaceutical companies and highlight solutions from AHM and its partners. AHM intends to have its first client solution within the Asia Pacific region live by the end of 2016.

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — AHM will be hosting its 4th Annual Industry Conference on May 11-12, 2016 at the Hilton in Parsippany, NJ. The Conference has become the premier event of the year for Life Sciences companies intent on ensuring compliant healthcare professional (HCP) interactions, with a focus on Meeting and Events. Attracting participants ranging from global pharmaceutical companies to smaller emerging bio-techs, the conference is open to AHM clients and others looking to enhance or upgrade their existing systems, processes and solutions, as well as companies who simply want to learn from their peers.
Since the emergence of the US Sunshine Act, which requires healthcare organizations (HCOs) to be transparent regarding their spending/”transfer-of-value” transactions for HCP interactions, there has been a dramatic increase in efforts to enhance data collection and ensure compliance. The growth in the number of companies operating under Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIA) has also raised these same concerns.
AHM’s Industry Conference is unique because of its comprehensive content; a ‘one-stop-shopping’ experience unavailable at any other event of this kind. The Conference explores the real-world experiences of AHM’s broad customer base, addressing some of the business problems and solutions that come up across the industry, as well as providing sessions focused on innovative solutions in areas such as technology and services from various experts in Life Sciences compliance.

This year’s theme is “Together Toward Compliant HCP Interactions,” and the conference will focus on collaborating and sharing ideas that affect all of the functional divisions within an HCO. The Conference will also be looking beyond US regulations to the challenges involved with global compliance, where AHM has seen significant new interest in the market. Additional topics include:

  • How to Deploy Global Compliance Solutions
  • An HCP Panel on Sunshine Act & Meeting Participation
  • AHM & MeetingsNet Industry Survey Results
  • Client Presentations on Solving Key Speaker Bureau and Compliance Challenges
  • Best Practices for Speaker Bureau & Global Compliance Solutions
  • Enhanced Compliance for Strategic Meeting Management Solutions

AHM’s Industry Conference is exclusively developed for the needs of Life Sciences professionals across medical affairs, compliance, legal, procurement, commercial operations, sales & marketing, information technology and meeting services departments within HCOs. Attendance is on an invitation-only basis. With complimentary registration, targeted discussions, and networking opportunities, the AHM Industry Conference provides valuable knowledge and insights into this growing industry.

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — In early October, two industry leaders — AHM and Cvent — came together with a select group of customers to review the companies’ joint offering to better manage the compliance requirements for meetings and events in the Life Sciences Industry. The focus group reviewed the AHM product roadmap and discussed the company’s plans to provide an integrated solution between AHM’s CentrisDirect compliance platform and Cvent’s market-leading event management software.
As the need to ensure that HCP interactions are conducted in a compliant manner increases, Life Science companies face a growing number of challenges which include:

  • Rapidly expanding global compliance and regulatory requirements
  • Numerous disparate IT systems and service providers creating a complex integration process
  • Prohibitive and non-sustainable cost and support infrastructure needs

The key theme from the focus group was clear — Compliance, Procurement, IT and Meeting and Event Management Services teams are collectively seeking solutions that will simplify, consolidate and reduce the cost of managing HCP interactions. The integration of Cvent’s Enterprise Solution offering with AHM’s CentrisDirect compliance platform provides such a solution and assures that compliance rules can be applied consistently across global markets.
“As compliance obligations and strategic meetings management programs mature within Life Sciences organizations, our customers are asking for a more streamlined method of operating,” said Lisa Keilty, AHM Global VP of Compliance and Strategic Solutions. “The AHM and Cvent alignment drives process efficiencies, lowers costs and complexity, and reduces compliance risks throughout our clients’ organizations. We believe that by linking and leveraging the complementary strengths of our solutions, services and subject matter expertise it enables a material advancement in ensuring compliance needs are fulfilled.
AHM is a leading global provider of technology and service solutions designed to manage compliant interactions with healthcare professionals (HCP) globally. Cvent, a leading enterprise software solutions company offers meeting and event professional’s cloud-based software to support strategic meetings management initiatives using online event registration, venue selection, event management, event specific mobile apps and more.
AHM and Cvent hosted a webinar this past week to further discuss the integration value and process ahead of the solution development. For those interested in learning more information, please contact info@ahmdirect.com.
