KPMG Healthcare Professional Engagement Assist (HCP)
Pharmaceutical and medical device companies commonly work with external clinicians and researchers to develop and market their company’s latest drugs and devices.
The risk for these companies is making sure all aspects of each healthcare provider relationship comply with regulations.
Their teams must track all interactions with each healthcare provider, a process that’s often manual and risk prone.
KPMG developed a cloud-based solution (KPMG Healthcare Professional Engagement Assist) to help these valuable professionals take the risk out of managing complex healthcare provider engagements.
The tool streamlines the process on a unified platform and centralizes data across systems.
Having a standard, automated process is more efficient and improves accuracy. It also adds checks and balances to help ensure each step in the engagement fits within organizational and regulatory guidelines.
The tool helps organizations build and execute annual business plans. It then simplifies the workflow – from selecting healthcare professionals, paying fair market value, and creating and negotiating contracts…to tracking invoices, compliance, and return on investment.
We built the solution on the Appian Platform which enables development cycles of weeks rather than months and adds flexibility to tailor the solution for varying processes.
In this example, a medical affairs professional logs into the tool and adds a new physician engagement.
This physician will consult with the company on a new drug.
An easy-to-use interface allows team members to document healthcare professional and engagement details.
The tool tracks and reports the contract progress, deliverables, compensation, and expenses. It also allows compliance teams to monitor for potential issues.
Then finance professionals use the tool to approve invoices. It also tracks data back to the initial business plan.
Don’t let outdated processes get in the way of better products and patient outcomes.
Let us use our experience and understanding of healthcare and life sciences to help your teams easily avoid compliance violations and improve your products.
