Pharmica Consulting has long filled the role of being a life sciences expert in pairing business processes to new systems and technologies. In order to continue to keep up with the latest technology in healthcare, Pharmica Consulting has been partnering with many pharmaceutical clients in solving health information technology issues when patent expirations and thin pipelines result in pharmaceutical companies trying to determine how to capitalize on health IT. To solve these problems, Pharmica applies its core competencies in envisioning exercises, solution framing, data integration and reporting, and process optimization. Coupled with industry expertise and technological know-how, Pharmica is able to guide clients to the solution that is right for them.

“People often hear about health information technology, but don't understand what it means for the pharmaceutical industry,” said Matt Kiernan, Partner with Pharmica Consulting. “Pharmica has been working with health information technology for a while now and we have the right knowledge and expertise to help the industry tackle it. We cover topics such as data mining for opportunity identification and patient recruitment support.”

“Health IT, electronic medical records (EMRs), and big data are all very hot topics right now in our industry,” said Eric Lake, Partner with Pharmica Consulting. “Not too many people are familiar with this area or know exactly how to benefit from it. No one has all the answers to health information technology yet, but at Pharmica we have the knowledge to help you get there.”

“Electronic medical records offer insights for sponsors and potential investigator sites,” said Brendan O'Neill, who works in Global Trial Optimization at Merck. “EMRs can be used to evaluate protocol feasibility to eliminate future protocol amendments after the study has started. EMRs can also assist investigator sites evaluate their potential pool of patients for an upcoming study.”

“Pharmica isn't going to just stop there,” said Matt Kiernan, Partner with Pharmica Consulting. “We need to learn as much as we can about health information technology to assure we are giving out the best service to our clients.
