Download our latest poster “Data Elements in Inpatient Databases to Enhance Safety & Health Outcomes Research,” which was presented at ISPE’s 29th International Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology & Therapeutic Risk Management in Montreal, Canada on August 27, 2013. The poster describes specific data elements found in inpatient databases (DBs) and compares them with data fields in outpatient DBs.
B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA has several IMS database profiles, and we have just added 3 more:
Check out the remaining National Health and Wellness Survey (NHWS) Database profiles we just uploaded - from France, Germany, Spain, and UK. Next week we will be uploading several more profiles, so be sure to come back and check them out or subscribe to our feed for the most up-to-date news.
We are making strides into adding new database profiles from more countries. We now have our first profile from Croatia, namely HALMED Pharmacovigilance Database (listed in B.R.I.D.G.E. as the Croatian PV Database). We will try to profile some more Croatian databases soon, as well as databases from other Eastern European countries.
Download our latest poster “Spontaneous Reporting Data: A Global Comparison Using An Online Database Resource," which was presented at ISPOR’s 18th Annual International Meeting in New Orleans, LA on May 20, 2013. The poster describes, through the use of B.R.I.D.G.E., data elements in spontaneous reporting systems (SRS) that are useful for evaluating safety signals. The frequency of use of the different data fields was compared across several SRS and the CIOMS report form.
