The project will look at the potential for identifying drug safety issues via mining of publically available social media data

An app will be developed to make it easy for healthcare professionals and the public to report suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to national and European regulators.

An EU initiative wants to widen the use of smartphones and social media for transmitting notifications about drug safety issues directly to patients, clinicians and caregivers. The three-year project, known as WEB-RADR, involves the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). It will investigate the potential of social media data and its value for pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology.

Funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative, a public–private partnership between the European Union and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, WEB-RADR also aims to come up with recommendations for the medicines regulators and the pharmaceutical industry on how these new approaches can be integrated with existing systems.

A workshop to launch the scheme will be held at the European Medicines Agency at the end of October 2014.

“The growing use of smartphones and tablets by patients and healthcare professionals creates a need for reporting forms to be provided on these platforms to ensure regulators receive ADR reports that are easy to access and complete,” says Mick Foy, from the MHRA’s vigilance and risk management of medicines division.

“[T]he recent growth of social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and the many specialist sites and blogs, has given rise to many people sharing their medical experiences publically on the internet. Such data sharing, if properly harnessed, could provide an extremely valuable source of information for post-marketing surveillance for suspected adverse drug reactions and safety monitoring.”

Can Big Data Improve Medical Diagnoses?

Can Big Data Improve Medical Diagnoses? | Healthy society | Scoop.it
A new startup called Enlitic aims to build software that detects cancer tumors in x-ray images. SOURCE August 21, 2014 What if software akin to the program that recognizes faces in Facebook FB +2.01%photos could detect cancer in an x-ray? That’s the idea behind Enlitic, a new startup founded by Jeremy Howard. Howard is a heavy hitter in big data: He’s data strategist for Silicon Valley venture capital powerhouse Khosla Ventures and former president and chief scientist of Kaggle, which hosts big-brain predictive modeling competitions. Enlitic aims to use advances in machine learning to make medical diagnoses. The company says it has partnered with hospitals and medical imaging companies – Howard won’t say which ones – to mine a host of data sources, including x-rays, lab results, handwritten doctors notes, and claims records. The company is building software algorithms that identify otherwise invisible patterns in these data sources, making for sharper diagnoses. The software, which

Le nombre de personnes âgées de plus de 60 ans est amené, en France, à doubler d’ici à 2030 pour atteindre 20 millions de personnes. Les nouvelles technologies et les évolutions démographiques vont modifier en profondeur les marchés de la santé et de la pharmacie. Toutefois, ce basculement ne doit pas être appréhendé comme une fatalité, mais comme une opportunité dont il faut se saisir au plus vite. En effet, le marché de l’autonomie et de la dépendance représente un potentiel important en matière d’emplois et de développement économique.

Après toute la série des expérimentations qui se sont multipliées sans engager de véritable approche systémique, la démarche engagée signe enfin d'une reconnaissance globale du processus de dissémination de l'innovation technologique en se centrant sur l'usage, les transformations des pratiques et la valorisation des compétences.

Outre la reconnaissance du caractère formateur de l’activité, le groupe de travail a suggéré de « rapprocher la télémédecine de l’Education Thérapeutique du Patient (ETP) car cette dernière permet au patient de s’éduquer et de prendre ainsi une part active dans son traitement en collaboration avec le professionnel de santé ». - See more at: http://www.dsih.fr/article/1166/valoriser-la-fonction-apprenante-de-la-telemedecine.html#sthash.blltO86z.dpufOutre la reconnaissance du caractère formateur de l’activité, le groupe de travail a suggéré de « rapprocher la télémédecine de l’Education Thérapeutique du Patient (ETP) car cette dernière permet au patient de s’éduquer et de prendre ainsi une part active dans son traitement en collaboration avec le professionnel de santé ». - See more at: http://www.dsih.fr/article/1166/valoriser-la-fonction-apprenante-de-la-telemedecine.html#sthash.blltO86z.dpuf
