There are a number of ways healthcare professionals, manufacturers, and consumers report adverse events from medical products to the FDA. Did you know that the FDA also monitors medical product safety through information from healthcare records?  Using secure access to these records FDA researchers are able to actively look for safety information. The “Mini-Sentinel” pilot project is one of the first steps in the Sentinel Initiative towards building a nationwide rapid response electronic safety surveillance system.

On Thursday, November 20th, FDA hosted a webinar that explains more in depth the Sentinel Initiative and CBER’s Mini-Sentinel components. Michael D. Nguyen, MD, Deputy Director, Division of Epidemiology in the Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology with FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research discussed this exciting new avenue for gathering medical product safety information and the importance for consumers.

After the presentation, there was opportunity to ask questions.
