Commonwealth Informatics to work with the MHRA to explore and enhance use of new methodologies and analytic tools for proactively and strategically managing safety during drug approval and post market surveillance.
WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Commonwealth Informatics, a leading provider of innovative cloud-based products and services for medical product safety and public health surveillance, today announced that it signed a new contract to support the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) through the NHSX digital transformation program to explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) approaches to safety surveillance.
The project will research and pilot the use of AI/ML to make use of real-world evidence alongside spontaneous reporting, as well as use of novel analytical techniques to identify and characterise safety issues both earlier and in a more robust manner across vaccines, medicines, and medical devices.
According to Phil Tregunno, MHRA Group Manager Vigilance, Intelligence and Research Group “Through this programme the MHRA are looking to fulfil its mission to transform how the MHRA manages patient safety for all regulated healthcare products and establish a more responsive surveillance system.”
Geoff Gordon, Commonwealth President and Founder, said “We are extremely proud to partner with the MHRA on this transformative project to bring real tangible improvements to safety surveillance. Our goal in this explorative phase is to identify methodologies that the MHRA can leverage to enhance their safety science workflow and ultimately bring benefit to public health through improved signal detection methodologies. The Commonwealth team has both the technical expertise and domain knowledge needed to collaborate closely and effectively with the MHRA on this project and to meet its objectives.”
