LifeSphere® Central Coding

Shortens the learning curve and delivers efficiency gains

Key Benefits


  • Lowers case resubmission through right-first-time coding
  • Reduces report preparation effort
  • Improves compliance with coding standards with consistent coding across cases and studies
  • Cuts costs for MedDRA upgrades
  • Supports sophisticated coding algorithms for automated coding

LifeSphere® Central Coding – A Unique Medical Coding Solution

Leveraging advanced cognitive computing capabilities, LifeSphere Central Coding ensures consistency during case processing, reducing the effort required to prepare periodic reports, enhancing compliance, and improving understanding of safety issues during aggregate analysis.  Deployed on a multi-tenant, cloud-based platform, the medical coding solution  seamlessly integrates with LifeSphere® Safety MultiVigilance, other safety case handling systems including Oracle Argus™, and third-party tools such as clinical data management and EDC systems.

With standard APIs and webservices, it receives verbatim terms from any compatible source system and performs auto-coding against specified medical dictionaries using advanced coding algorithms and defined synonyms. The coded terms are then sent back to the source. LifeSphere Central Coding supports adverse event term dictionaries (MedDRA) and product dictionaries (WHO DDE, Japanese Drug Dictionary) and delivers upgrade/impact analysis and recoding.

Coding specialists can instantly resolve multiple records that use the same term, perform advanced searching, and manually code newly encountered verbatim terms.
