Adverse drug event (ADE) reporting has been challenging for physicians and other healthcare providers because it has been out of workflow - which meant leaving patient care activities, paper charting or an EHR system to look up an 800# for a pharmaceutical firm (where most adverse event reports begin), or to go online to the FDA MedWatch service.
RxEvent, a HIPAA-compliant, ADE reporting service from PDR Network, is a collaboration of medical professional insurance carriers and government experts to improve ADE reporting, for both the sender and the recipients, and thereby help improve patient safety and medication efficacy. Using the RxEvent service, U.S. physicians and other healthcare providers are able to easily and effectively report ADEs from within workflow, and in doing so contribute significantly to increased drug safety, and patient safety.
RxEvent can be integrated into EHRs as well as the web sites of medical professional insurance carriers, medical societies, PDR Network and other partners. ADE reports submitted to RxEvent.org are sent to the manufacturer and/or the FDA as they are received, and reporters can print a copy of the completed event report and will receive prompt confirmation of their submission.
Going forward, RxEvent will offer expanded reporting options with various forms of drug-specific customization, to facilitate access to key data and reduce/eliminate the follow-up required currently, that wastes manufacturers' resources and physician time.
EHR vendors, medical professional insurance carriers, major medical societies and others have aligned to bring the important RxEvent safety service to physicians and other prescribers.
