eHealth Initiative Foundation Launches Collaborative Research Effort to Improve Drug Safety
Date:11/29/2007

et another example of how standardized, longitudinal data can be leveraged to improve the safety of patient care," said J. Marc Overhage, MD, PhD, Director of the Regenstrief Institute. John Glaser, PhD, Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Partners HealthCare noted, "New, innovative approaches are needed to increase the timeliness and effectiveness with which we can identify drug safety issues. This collaboration gives us an opportunity to assess the feasibility of using clinical data for these issues, and develop methodologies that can be replicated by others."

eHealth Initiative Chief Executive Officer Janet Marchibroda said, "We're delighted to be launching this new, multi-stakeholder collaboration. Leaders at the national, state and local levels will gain practical insights from this work, and it is our hope that the lessons learned and tools that emerge from the project will stimulate the development of new approaches that will not only improve the timeliness and effectiveness of assessing the risks of new drug treatments, but also the benefits."

A multi-stakeholder National Advisory Board made up of academic experts, clinicians, consumers, hospitals, pharmacists, privacy experts, state and local leaders, and the federal government will provide direct guidance to the effort and also oversee the development of the technical, legal, and communications-related tools, which will be made widely available to accelerate the creation of an active drug safety surveillance system in the U.S. through the use of health IT and health information exchange.
