These data describe information about the reporter – the person who submitted the report to FDA, or the person who submitted the report to the manufacturer (who then sent the report to FDA).  Physicians and pharmacists are the healthcare providers (HCP) who submit reports to FDA most frequently.

This figure includes only data where reporter information is known, and some adverse event reports may contain more than one reporter.
