Outline l.jpg

Outline

  • Paroxetine

  • Citalopram

  • Vinorelbine

  • Pravastatin


Adverse events data source and limitations aers l.jpg

Adverse Events Data Source and Limitations: AERS

  • Spontaneous and voluntary system

    • Underreporting

    • Reporting bias

    • Quality of report

    • Cannot estimate true incidence rate of events or exposure risk


Drug use data sources and limitations l.jpg

Drug Use Data Sources and Limitations

  • IMS Health, National Prescription Audit Plus measures prescriptions dispensed from retail pharmacies but does not provide demographic information on prescription use

  • IMS Health, National Disease and Therapeutic Index is a survey based on a sample size of 2000 - 3000 office-based physicians. The small sample size can make these data projections unstable, particularly when use is not prevalent as in the case of the pediatric population.


Drug use data sources and limitations cont d l.jpg

Drug Use Data Sources and Limitations (cont’d)

  • AdvancePCS is based on a large prescription claims database but data cannot be projected

  • Premier, Inc. contains inpatient drug use from 400 acute, short-stay, non-federal hospitals. National projection methodology is available but the ability to make accurate national estimates is selective; drug use cannot be linked to diagnosis or procedure; treatments administered at hospital outpatient clinics not included.


Drug use data sources and limitations cont d7 l.jpg

Drug Use Data Sources and Limitations (cont’d)

  • Child Health Corporation of America™ (CHCA) Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS)
