Project Name FHIR Adverse Event Resource

Project Sponsor(s) RCRIM Work Group and Patient Care WG


Project Scope Statement - Project 1240

Objectives / Deliverables

To enhance patient safety, it is noted that many countries have strong needs to exchange product safety information between varieties of stakeholders in the healthcare domain. Currently many regulatory agencies collect safety reports of adverse drug reactions, adverse events, infections, contamination and other incidents from consumers, pharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals.

The AdverseEvent resource will address the exchange of the following types of information:

1) Individual Case Safety Report (ICSR): Framework for data exchange and information sharing by providing a common messaging format for transmission of Individual Case Safety Reports (ICSR) for adverse drug reactions (ADR), adverse events (AE), product problems and consumer complaints that may occur upon the administration or use of one or more products or substances. The reports can relate to a specific subject or may be used to relay an issue or finding related to a specific substance, product or device.

2) (Not in current standard) – Individual Occurrence Report (IOR): The identification and characterization of exceptional events related to patient care, patient safety, protocol implementation, and service delivery. Examples might be falling out of bed, slipping on a wet floor, inappropriate use of restraints.
