Drug Safety

Pharmacovigilance is the continuous and systematic monitoring of drug safety. This means diligently monitoring any harmful or adverse effects in order to evaluate and understand the root of the problem. The data are essential for efficient risk management and implementing appropriate measures to minimize risks.

We understand that the challenges in pharmacovigilance are constantly changing and the requirements are getting more complicated and steadily growing larger. To keep pace and comply with the rapidly changing legal and scientific requirements, it is essential to find a competent and flexible partner, with years of experience in the field of pharmacovigilance. We at DREHM Pharma have the capacity to meet your needs by leading the way with consulting services as well as covering the requirements of your company for outsourcing your pharmacovigilance activities.
