Approximately 500,000 adverse drug events (ADEs) are reported annually to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—according to FDA data, this number is growing rapidly.
However, published studies indicate that as few as one in 10 ADEs are actually reported by health care professionals, largely due to the time-consuming and inefficient processes involved.
RxEvent, a HIPAA-compliant service available to all U.S. health care professionals, provides quick, convenient online access for reporting ADEs.
Designed by PDR Network and its partners to improve reporting convenience, RxEvent is an online network that collects information on adverse drug events and distributes it to the manufacturer and/or the FDA.
If you have encountered an ADE, please report it to RxEvent at www.rxevent.org/Partner/00001.
