PCI Pharma Services

Philadelphia, PA – March 12, 2019. Leading biopharmaceutical services provider PCI Clinical Services (PCI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Spence as Director of Clinical Supply Chain – International Region.

Based out of the UK, Lisa will partner with Katy Ostertag-Johnson, Director of Clinical Supply Chain, North America, to build and lead the expansion of PCI’s SMART Supply Management team, providing a harmonized global service offering for clients executing global studies in both domestic and emerging market geographies. PCI supports commercial and investigational trial medicines destined to over 100 countries around the world and has recently further expanded operations into new acquired locations in Dublin, Ireland; Melbourne, Australia; and San Diego, California.

PCI’s SMART team directly supports clients in clinical study design and execution, facilitating smooth and efficient clinical trial supply strategies including forecasting of clinical supply demand, building drug projections, dynamic inventory management and overseeing tailored packaging, labeling and distribution models. The team leverages expertise in factors such as assessing clinical protocol revisions and analyze enrollment rates, usage, and trends to benefit clients. In this new role at PCI, Lisa brings significant logistics, operations, regulatory and clinical supply experience – having previously held senior positions at sponsor companies including MedImmune, Pfizer, GSK, and Merck.

Commenting on Lisa’s appointment, Brian Keesee, PCI Vice President and General Manager, Global Clinical Operations and Supply, said: “Lisa is highly talented, and we are delighted to welcome her to PCI. With her considerable experience in logistics and operations for global clinical studies, she will be instrumental in providing our clients with invaluable insights and best practices for executing studies more quickly and effectively. Studies are increasingly complex, with multi-country administration, factors such as cold chain or ultra cold chain requirements, as well as new advancing logistical models. Lisa is a great fit for our mission to deliver the industry-leading customer experience for PCI’s clients across the world, helping them advance new therapies to realize successful outcomes.”

Lisa said: “I am delighted to be joining PCI at this exciting time as the company is entering such a transformative period of investment and expansion. I am really looking forward to joining the team and leveraging my experience in my new role to deliver great results for both new and current clients around the world.”

PCI’s UK location recently completed significant facilities expansion, opening a new state-of-the-art building for logistical activities, investment in an additional dedicated drug product returns facility, as well as expansion of its cold chain infrastructure. The investments were further complimented by capital site expansions in North America at the Rockford, IL location, anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2019.

PhlexEarchive: The Right Solution for Electronic Archiving of TMF Content

Phlexglobal Ltd

Many sponsor organizations have already recognized the value of moving from paper to electronic Trial Master Files (eTMFs). But few sponsors have taken a more holistic approach to the TMF lifecycle and looked at the entire process from study start-up through archiving of the TMF in electronic format, also known as e-archiving. The recurring value of managing, tracking, maintaining and accessing electronic files should not stop at the point of archiving. All of the challenges of managing an active paper TMF carry through to a paper archive. All of the benefits of an electronic TMF also carry through to the electronic archive. As companies look to move their compliance assets to secure, long-term storage, it is important to consider ongoing compliance requirements, security, accessibility, efficiency and costs of archiving TMF content in a digital format.
