Deliver accessible medicine information to HCPs and patients

One of pharma’s biggest challenge is to ensure all medicines safety information is available and easily accessible for healthcare professionals, carers and patients.
HCPs and patients are increasingly going online to access medicine information, so it is important to make sure the information provided is accurate and sourced directly from the manufacturer.

emc (electronic medicines compendium) is a digital platform that supports pharma in fulfilling their regulatory requirements to make their reference safety information as accessible as possible, enabling HCPs and patients to make informed decisions about medicines.

Can I use emc as my own internal repository for my safety information?

Many of our members use emc as their organisation’s single source of truth as it hosts the latest version of regulatory approved SmPCs and PILs, as approved by regulators. This removes the need to store multiple copies of the documents on local file systems which leads to better version control. It also helps internal teams to monitor what is available to the general public.
