Pharmaceutical Risk Management Consulting

Consulting Solutions

Leveraging real-world evidence to provide expert solutions in drug safety, risk management, and pharmacoepidemiology

UBC experts provide product safety and effectiveness consulting to the pharmaceutical, biotech, and device industries. Our leaders are recognized throughout the world.  We incorporate an epidemiologic approach into our services and solutions to collect and analyze data on product safety, effectiveness, and value. Our scientists have designed and implemented many of the industry’s largest and most complex safety and risk management programs. Consulting includes strategy and study design to meet post-marketing requirements in the U.S. and the EU. Additionally, we offer software and services that provide rapid answers to safety and cost utilization questions.

For value propositions, we work with sponsors to refine the need, and then customize the data collection solution ranging from patient surveys to medical chart abstraction to cohort or registry data collection. We are also experts in time and motion studies to evaluate product impact on medical processes.

Our strategic consulting services help guide our clients in meeting regulatory requirements and commercial objectives for peri and postapproval studies, risk assessment, and risk minimization.
