Research Triangle Park, N.C. – November 30, 2021 –Worldwide Clinical Trials, Inc. (Worldwide), the industry’s leading global, midsize, full-service contract research organization (CRO), today announced adoption of WCG SafetyVigilance® online pharmacovigilance notification portal, hosted by WCG’s InvestigatorSpace®, which drives increased speed, accuracy, and efficiency in the global distribution of safety event communications. Worldwide offers a comprehensive suite of pharmacovigilance capabilities, including a regulatory intelligence database that is unique to the company and enhanced by WCG’s proprietary SafetyVigilance® portal.

“Worldwide has the global reach many other midsize CROs don’t have, and this enables us to complete global safety submissions because of the unique local regulatory requirements necessary.

The customers we work with depend on Worldwide to maintain the highest safety standards, no matter how challenging it may be,” said Peter Benton, President and CEO, Worldwide Clinical Trials.

At Worldwide, the online pharmacovigilance notification portal enhances process improvement and management of patient safety data related to sponsor products, alleviating workflow obstacles. It also reduces administrative burdens on sponsors by driving increased speed and accuracy in distributing safety events, mitigating over-distribution and duplication of notifications, streamlining reporting, and centralizing receipt and acknowledgement of all events.

“We are thrilled to support Worldwide in their quest to streamline safety report distribution and reducing the burden it places on investigator sites. With 85 percent of trials facing massive workforce constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WCG SafetyVigilance® will eliminate over-distribution and duplication, while also increasing compliance. Worldwide has taken a leading stance to safety letter delivery by providing a centralized solution to biopharma companies in order to execute higher quality, compliance-led clinical trials,” said Nicholas Slack, MBE, President of WCG.
