Event Overview:

A growing body of evidence exists demonstrating low rates of case reporting for adverse events (AEs) - some estimates suggest that over 95% go unreported.1 A U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) report estimates that only one in ten AEs are reported.2 What limited reporting that does take place is often plagued by incomplete documentation and long follow-up times – increasing the burden on healthcare providers who already have limited time and resources. How can we transform the critical practice of pharmacovigilance for the 21st Century, and leverage point-of-care technology to improve real-world safety reporting? In this webcast, we explore whether technology can help reduce the physician burden associated with real-world safety reporting and provide actionable considerations for how to leverage technology to improve your pharmacovigilance programs.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the physician burden associated with most pharmacovigilance programs
  • Examine considerations for improving real-world safety reporting of AEs
  • Explore actionable approaches to streamline and modernize safety reporting of AEs

Who Should Attend:

  • Healthcare biopharma and other industry leaders focused on
    • Real world evidence
    • Real world data
    • Pharmacovigilance
