Other Applications




This research provides an opportunity to utilize the Oracle Argus Drug Safety Application for medical and scientific research in addition to Pharmacovigilance.



Drug Research and Sales-Distribution Process

Wish I have a Unified place to have all the information??...

Distribution Channel

CRO /HCP/others

Sales Channels Influencers

  • Market representative
  • Print Media / Adv.
  • Health Promotion Campaigns
  • Conference
  • Journal / Articles

Regulatory agency

Other Sources (internet, books and journals etc..)


Business Challenges

Pharmaceutical Industry


Investment in Marketing

Scattered Product Information

Vast and Complex Data

Lack of comparative Product Details

High Lead time in sharing the product Info.

Providing best medical treatment options




Proposed Idea

The PV data should be used for educating Health Care Professionals & Research Scholar’s to improve safe drug utilization & research process.

This can be achieved by developing an extension to Argus Safety Application

Leveraging the following information from Argus

a). Product details

b). Patient details

c). Event details


Business Solution





New Web Based Interface

Flexibility, Filtering options

Custom Reports,Dashboards,

MedDRA, WHO Drug Dictionaries

Data Security

Data from UMC/Regulatory Database/Other Sources

business solution details
Business Solution….. details

The solution is based on leveraging capabilities of Argus Safety and Argus Insight modules from Oracle

PV data stored in Argus safety for a Pharma client is transferred to Argus Insight through ETL .

PV data of other companies obtained from Regulatory bodies / Other sources will be loaded into Argus Insight

Argus Insight dashboards to be used to provide information to internal sales and research teams

Web Based user interface to be created for outside agencies like HCP’s.

This interactive interface will help HCP get information on drug composition, comparisons, dosage and forms available.

User friendly reports to help them get the following

  • By Using the comparison Logic
    • Detailed Product specifications
    • Differences
    • Customizable side-by-side comparison charts
  • Comparable Reports
    • Event Comparison Reports
    • Doses, Formulation and Product Relationship.
    • Patient History summary [by Event]
  • Labeling Summary Reports.

The solution is expected to take 60 person months of effort and is estimated at a one time cost of 450K USD depending upon the complexity of client landscape


Key Issues…..



Broader Data Security/Regulatory concerns

Application Integrity (ETL)

Education to Application User

Need to develop online CBT/ application user manual
