Automation in Pharmacovigilance

Introduction


Per WHO definition, Pharmacovigilance is the science and activities relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects or any other medicine/vaccine related problem. All medicines and vaccines undergo rigorous testing for safety and efficacy through clinical trials before they are authorized for use.


It is a process of data acquisition (entry), data analysis and giving benefit risk communication. Here we will list out activities that are targets for automation in pharmacovigilance.
