It's Not Just You: FDA Regulatory Requirements Really Are Increasing

According to data made available by George Mason University's Mercatus Center and analyzed by Regulatory Focus, the number of regulatory requirements imposed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) increased by 15% between the years 2000 and 2012.
While regulatory professionals working with FDA needed to know just 16,329 requirements in 2000, they needed to know 18,777 in 2012, according to the data. October 30, 2014

How To Build Real Patient-Centered Pharmaceutical Companies

With such a focus these days on buzzwords such as "patient-centric," "patient-centered," and "patient-centricity," some people are predicting “patient engagement” to be the next big movement in our industry, much as blockbuster drugs were a decade or more ago. But while improving patient engagement sounds fairly straightforward for those who directly interact with patients (e.g., doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians assistants), for the biopharmaceutical industry, successfully executing this concept has been — and continues to be — much more challenging.

Next workgroup meeting - December 4, 2014

New Research Billing Workgroup follows LEAN methodology to improve the Bidge-EMR process

In April 2014, the Health System launched EMR research Functionality that supplanted previous processes (Invision, Bulk Acct Application Form). While the new process provides an opportunity for just-in-time patient tracking and validated procedure billing, the new process increased labor costs due to substantial manual input and rework. Charges are being incorrectly posted to patient and study accounts potentially leading to double billing and/or rejected claims.

Objectives/ Goals: To review the entire process flow and identify areas for reducing manual effort, rework and duplications. Reduce time spent on maintaining the process while maintaining quality and improving billing compliance. Reduce errors in charge posting and claim generation.
