Situation

New regulations and an increasingly competitive business environment drove Gilead Sciences to seek a solution that would allow it to develop and maintain a more unified and trusted view of its physician data. Its legacy system held various versions of physician data that were maintained on multiple systems across the enterprise. The inconsistent data resulted in inaccurate and incomplete reporting. Gilead sought to overcome the following challenges:

  • Non-standard data format across the system
  • Erroneous and redundant address data due to manual capture processes lacking validation
  • Spend data distributed across several transactional systems, resulting in extremely challenging compliance checks
  • Non-enterprise, localized data standards
  • Duplicate information, resulting in poor customer relationships
  • Inaccurate reporting

This solution provided by AST has enabled Gilead to access and utilize accurate physician data quickly and efficiently, leading to improvement in commercial business processes and significant time and cost savings.”
