PARIS - Monday, February 3rd 2014 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cegedim Relationship Management, the worldwide market leader in healthcare compliance solutions, today announced the release of a new integration in partnership with Concur. The innovative solution will help ensure any expense tied to a Healthcare Professional (HCP) or Healthcare Organization (HCO) is accurately assigned upfront in Concur using a Cegedim OneKey global ID. Data is then seamlessly integrated into Cegedim’s AggregateSpend360 - the industry’s leading aggregate spend transparency and disclosure reporting solution. Concur is the leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions that are trusted by more than 20 million users worldwide.
Cloud-Based Integration Brings Enhanced Compliance Capabilities to Over 73 Markets Worldwide Revised industry association codes, coupled with more stringent transparency laws across the world, have caused Life Sciences companies to increasingly monitor and disclose their financial relationships with their individual stakeholders. Since the reporting evolves at a nominative level, uniquely identifying each covered recipient is critical.
The new Cegedim integrated solution built on Concur’s Platform, seamlessly enables Concur users to access OneKey - the world’s largest database of its kind – with 13.7 million unique, telephone-verified HCPs, HCOs and affiliations with licensure identifiers. The solution ensures high quality customer and expense data, and delivers accurate transparency reports through a seamless integration with AggregateSpend360. This comprehensive data management and reporting service collects all necessary expenditure transactions, and links them to a single customer view. AggregateSpend360 then automatically generates reports to satisfy unique compliance requirements through pre-built templates according to each transparency regulation.
Available within the Concur App Center, Cegedim’s OneKey application has the ability to deliver significant efficiency to the Life Sciences industry.
"With the increasing demand for global physician spend transparency, this breakthrough is an answer to the need for real-time, automated data integration, while complying with the latest requirements that pharmaceutical companies face throughout the world,” said Diva Duong, Vice President Compliance EMEA, Cegedim Relationship Management. "Through the partnership with Concur, we can further optimize companies’ ability to meet global compliance standards with high-value and innovative services.”
"The majority of large pharmaceutical and medical device organizations around the globe use Concur’s cloud-based solutions with sophisticated attendee spend tracking functionality.” said Jigish Avalani, SVP & GM of Concur Platform and Developer Services. "Delivering this integrated cloud solution, OneKey via the Concur App Center means that joint Concur and Cegedim Life Sciences clients can gain unparalleled insights and more easily comply with increasing physician spend tracking regulations wherever they conduct business.”
