Four of Top-Ten Global Pharmaceutical Companies Utilize Cegedim Relationship Management’s AggregateSpend360™

Industry Leaders Comply with Complex Disclosure Reporting and Transparency Requirements with Out-of-the-Box, Life Sciences SaaS Solution

PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cegedim Relationship Management today announced that four out of the top-ten global pharmaceutical companies utilize AggregateSpend360™ to manage compliance with disclosure reporting and transparency regulations and laws. These select companies join the ranks of 25 other AggregateSpend360 customers — continuing Cegedim Relationship Management’s position as the market share leader for aggregate spend solutions.

Ever Growing Global, Regional & Local Compliance Regulations

The global trend towards expense transparency has created a need for Life Sciences companies to track and report on expenditures to health care practitioners (HCPs) more than ever before. This growing trend is being driven by a mixture of disclosure and anti-bribery laws in various countries around the world. The complex arena of aggregate spend reporting is coupled with a new host of local, national, regional and global regulations which include: the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), Section 6002 (formerly known as the Physician Payments Sunshine Provisions) in the US; the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act which have international applicability; French regulations which will likely be enacted this year; and budding guidelines and regulations within the APAC region. The inflation of regulations widens the level of risk for companies from financial to reputational to penal, with imprisonment of executives possible in certain cases.

AggregateSpend360 addresses the increasingly difficult requirements of disclosure reporting on expenses associated with marketing activities, clinical trials, samples, gifts and payments to Health Care Providers (HCPs) through its powerful data processing and prebuilt templates that allow clients to automatically generate reports per each regulation. It is an out-of-the-box, SaaS solution that enables users to not only achieve compliance and avoid penalties, but also save time and streamline processes.

Cegedim Relationship Management is cited as the global market share leader for Life Sciences aggregate spend solutions in a recent IDC Health Insights report entitled Business Strategy: Aggregate Spend Compliance — The Next Frontier of Pharmaceutical Sales and Marketing.
