News : Genpact Accelerates Strategy to Establish New Industry Standard for Pharmacovigilance Using AI and Machine Learning
New York, NY, USA, June 11, 2018 -- Genpact (NYSE: G), a professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation, announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Commonwealth Informatics, Inc. (CI), a provider of cloud-based drug safety analytics products and services for medical research and healthcare delivery headquartered near Boston, Mass. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. This transaction is not expected to be material to current year financial performance.
With this acquisition, the Genpact pharmacovigilance artificial intelligence (PVAI) suite of capabilities is expected to establish a closed-loop, machine-learning system across the entire pharmacovigilance information value chain. Incorporating the Commonwealth Vigilance Workbench (CVW) software and the expertise of the CI team, Genpact will enable life sciences companies to establish a new approach for pharmacovigilance – one which leverages the wealth of available data in an effort to better predict and prevent adverse effects of medicines and thereby protect patient safety, while at the same time improving data quality and operational efficiency.
