The onset of the U.S. Sunshine Act set a global trend in motion. Now, from across the globe, countries are adopting disclosure and reporting requirements that mirror the stringency and breadth of the U.S. provision.
Cegedim Relationship Management and Concur have developed a new integrated solution that will be available in Concur's App Center, which launched this week, to answer global compliance needs by establishing a single compliance standard, ensuring high quality customer and expense data, and creating / delivering accurate transparency reports. Concur streamlines the essential compliance activity of capturing precise T&E data through its next generation, cloud-based solution. In order to further optimize a company's ability to meet global compliance standards, Concur's offerings will be integrated with Cegedim's flagship solutions:
• OneKey™ – the world's largest database of over 8-million unique, telephone-verified healthcare professionals (HCPs), organizations (HCOs) and affiliations with a full set of licensure identifiers
• AggregateSpend360™ – the breakthrough aggregate spend transparency and disclosure reporting solution
“Sophisticated attendee spend tracking functionality and unparalleled flexibility propelled our solution to a U.S. leadership position in the Life Sciences space a number of years ago. With the increasing demand for global physician spend transparency, our many global clients have been seeking a real-time automated data integration, and we knew that Cegedim would be the ideal partner,” said Tim MacDonald, EVP Platform & Data Services at Concur. “Since we have a significant client overlap in the space, it was a very natural decision to work together to alleviate the burden of compliance for the entire Life Sciences industry.”
