Electronic Vigilance Reporting Portal
Pharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals (HCP) can report suspected adverse drug reactions directly via the Internet.
Small and medium-sized pharmaceutical companies that do not have their own access to the Swissmedic pharmacovigilance database via the Gateway, as well as healthcare professionals who have been using paper forms to report such suspected cases, can now submit their reports to Swissmedic electronically.
ElViS can also be used to send case-related documents such as laboratory or hospital discharge reports. Once their report has been sent, users can save it and the acknowledgement of receipt on their computer’s hard drive for their own records. Data protection and security satisfy the most stringent requirements.
This modern, user-friendly reporting portal makes it easier for healthcare professionals and the industry to fulfil their statutory reporting obligations. Swissmedic hopes that this solution will result in faster submission of better-quality reports, thereby improving drug and patient safety in Switzerland.
