FDA makes Mini-Sentinel a permanent fixture of US drug safety surveillance system in October
The FDA has been piloting a project called Mini-Sentinel, which monitors the electronic health records (EHRs) of over 174 million Americans at 18 large health care organizations, which voluntarily report data they have analyzed to a team at the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute in Boston. The original pilot was funded by a $116 million grant provided in appropriations by Congress in 2007. The FDA has announced that the system will become permanently funded by FDA starting with the 2014-15 fiscal year on October 1. [Ledford H. Drug-safety pilot makes the grade.
