University at Buffalo, The State University of New York (SUNY) Goes Live with Osprey’s Conflict of Interest COI RiskManager™
Osprey COI RiskManager Automates Disclosure Management and Facilitates Compliance with NIH Regulations
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
Osprey Software Solutions (http://www.ospreyss.com), a software development company focused on the creation of fully-integrated, forward-thinking enterprise solutions, announced today that the University at Buffalo (New York´s largest public university) is using the Osprey COI RiskManager system to solve their demanding conflict of interest compliance needs. Osprey COI RiskManager will efficiently capture, track and report the required disclosures for the University´s several thousand faculty, post-docs, and fellows. The system further helps protect the University by ensuring compliance with the new National Institute of Health (NIH) conflict of interest disclosure regulations.
“We selected Osprey COI RiskManager because it is comprehensive, intuitive, and scalable and will allow us to streamline our process to comply with the new NIH disclosure reporting requirements,” says Edward Zablocki, UB´s Conflict of Interest Officer. “With nearly 3,000 users scattered across multiple locations, we needed a system that is flexible, user-friendly, straight-forward and could be implemented quickly and easily. Osprey´s team understands our unique requirements and is dedicated to ensuring our success.”
Osprey COI RiskManager is configurable and easy to deploy. It promotes participant compliance and improves organizational effectiveness. Participants are guided through focused, interactive questionnaires that dynamically prompt them only for necessary information. Additional information is requested only when a potential conflict is detected. The postponement and reminder features enable participants to complete the information at their convenience which improves compliance levels.
“We´re excited to bring Osprey COI RiskManager to the University at Buffalo with an eight week implementation cycle,” says Chris Cazer, CEO of Osprey Software Solutions. “We are pleased that the University determined that our solution offers the tools, features, and unique user interface that they need to ensure their regulatory compliance.”
Osprey´s COI RiskManager also features comprehensive committee management functions that include scheduling meetings, conflict hearings, creating management plans, and storing all minutes in one place.
By using Osprey COI RiskManager, universities, hospitals and medical organizations see improved control and reduced risk by:
- Utilizing the system´s automatic detection and notification of potential conflicts
- Increasing compliance levels by making it easier for participants to complete forms
- Incorporating the organization´s unique requirements into the forms using SmartForms technology
