Data exchange in the European pharmacovigilance.

Author information

Institute of Health Carlos III, Health Services Research Unit, Madrid, Spain.


Recent research work on feasible solutions for electronic data exchanges in the european pharmacovigilance domain (EPhV) has facilitated a better understanding on strategic and operational factors inherent to such a class of transnational vigilance information systems. Most of the material presented here has resulted from the CARE-Pharmacovigilance Pilot project of the ENS-Telematics Programme, and from other subsequent research activities like the IDA feasibility study and the TEDIS-EuroSCape project. Attention has been paid to design principles and features of a communication scheme that must be used to support cooperative problem solving within a network of loosely connected autonomous and hetereogeneous agents. Experience confirmed two key-success factors: a) the users leading role, and b) the Pilot approach putting the focus on standardized electronic data interchange for communicating existing different local systems.
