In order to evaluate all the IIS and CME requests Valeant received, they needed an online request management system that could handle their unique processes. Versaic developed a flexible solution to meet all these needs and more.

Prior to Versaic, Valeant had a system in place to manage IIS and CME requests, however it was
ineffective and cumbersome. Both IIS and CME grants have their own area of focus and criteria for
support, with an overall goal of making the biggest impact possible with the dollars invested. In
the previous system, Valeant employees spent a great deal of time organizing requests, thereby
losing time that could be better spent on identifying proposals that align with the company
mission. Sometimes information was lost or not processed on time causing a lot of manual work
to correct the situation. Further, they needed a system to properly handle concept vs. full
applications for IIS, and they needed the flexibility to have separate reviewers by therapeutic area.
They also wanted someone to handle the system administration so they could focus on their
programs and provide meaningful support to the on-going medical and scientific education of
Versaic’s easy-to-use dashboard enables Valeant to manage all the information associated with their educational
grants and investigator initiated trial programs. Data can be tracked, routed and reported on according to Valeant’s
In order to evaluate all the IIS and CME requests Valeant received, they needed an online request
management system that could handle their unique processes. Versaic developed a flexible
solution to meet all these needs and more. The Versaic platform is designed to fit your process, so
concept vs. full applications and multiple reviewers is no problem. You are also able to manage
automatic reconciliation and rest assured that all data needed for ANY reporting is captured. With
the Versaic system in place, Valeant can stay actively engaged with researchers and physicians
who are interested in working with the company’s products while making sure to adhere to strict
compliance laws. Requests can easily be evaluated for fit with the company’s products and
Valeant recognizes that IIS enables research that has the potential to improve the treatment of
diseases, patient outcomes and the quality of healthcare. Backed by the Versaic solution, Valeant
is able to identify and invest in the most promising academic and community-based scientists
interested in conducting research. They are also able to fulfill the need of healthcare professionals
relying on continuing medical education to improve their practice and deliver high-quality, safe and
effective patient care. With the Versaic system in place, Valeant is able to better manage their
review and monthly committee meeting processes. And as Valeant's programs and needs evolve,
Versaic is there to adapt their system to further speed processing and handling. This partnership
approach to support is included at no additional charge.

“Versaic’s system provided us with many features to streamline our review
of educational and research related grant applications. The Quick View
option has been a huge help– our old system made you login to review
anything and that was painful to individuals who did not go into the system
on a regular basis. The Versaic email tool is much more user-friendly as
well– giving you the option to pick which template you want to use.”
