Project Description

Big Data for Pharmacovigilance Conference

Conference overview

Location: BMA House, London

Date: 11 – 12 September 2019

Join industry leaders for the second conference on big data for pharmacovigilance

The scale of available health data is increasing rapidly and as the age of Big Data is established, and following the success of the first event, we will be holding the second “Big Data for Pharmacovigilance Conference”.

Pharmacovigilance is increasingly characterised by extremely large data sets from populations, individuals, disease registries, social media, pharmacogenomics and more. While big data can be messy, efforts are underway to establish strategies for ordering and structuring the data in order to put it to the best use in pharmacovigilance and ultimately public health.

Who should attend?

  • Staff from Pharma, academia and regulators with an interest in Big Data
  • Those working in drug safety or an allied discipline with an interest in electronic health records, linking data, data protection, transparency and reproducibility, natural language processing, the OMOP Common Data Model, real world evidence, etc
  • Those who wish to learn about Big Data and/ or contribute to the discussion on how PV should harness Big Data
