Have you ever observed a health informatics project in your (other) organization? Please provide a brief introduction.
In my previous organization, we worked on a web-based and mobile drug safety reporting tool to facilitate adverse events reporting from hospitals, patients, and doctors to pharmaceutical companies and the Ministry of Health and perform signal detection on Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSR) to help observe safety signals on different market products and investigational drug in clinical trials.
How can this health informatics project help to improve the current practices?
Using the drug safety database, we were able to perform signal detection on Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSR) to help observe safety signals on different market products and investigational drugs in clinical trials.
Are there any challenges or difficulties in implementing the project?
It was difficult for all healthcare providers to move from a paper-based form to a web or mobile application and add additional data from patient medical history to fulfill the minimum required data in Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSR).
