Next Generation Signal Management System

The demands on pharmacovigilance teams have never been greater.  The surveillance of post-marketed drugs includes increased global regulatory oversight and more data sources. Safety reviewers must detect problems as early as possible while minimizing time lost chasing false signals.  Following up on true signals, from detection to resolution, requires numerous teams, all contributing to an effort that must be optimized, transparent and available for audit.  

A Platform for Signal Management from Detection to Resolution

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 experienced Commonwealth team designed CVW using innovative methods of signal detection, a modern technology architecture and user-centric design methodology to deliver safety reviewers a next generation system for managing signals from detection to resolution. CVW integrates multiple data sources including longitudinal data, Eurdravigilance reports and spontaneous data sources, has configurable workflow and streamlined ToDo lists to support, manage and track safety review processes.

Key Benefits

  • More Conclusive Investigations – Use proven, innovative signal detection methods to to identify and validate new signals 
  • Increased Efficiency – User and signal management-specific workflows, operational metrics and ToDo lists help optimize work processes for safety reviewers throughout the safety signal lifecycle
  • Deeper Insights – Access multiple types of data sources directly including spontaneous and longitudinal data with tools designed for large clinical datasets and collaborations across teams
