Data mining and screening of spontaneous reports have become increasingly important. Screening of other data sets such as insurance data and electronic patient reports has received much attention. A recent invitation-only PhRMA-funded meeting assessed the role of standard methods in the screening of spontaneous reports. With the anticipated release of CIOMS VIII, this meeting will build on these major initiatives.
This first-of-its-kind conference will bring together an international group of experts to review current stateof-the-art thinking on the future developments in data mining and signal detection—including its applications to other healthcare datasets—screening of healthcare data, and a vision of how drug safety issues will be detected faster and more effectively in the future.
Apply the skills and information you learn during this conference to make real-world strategic decisions in signal detection.


• Update on CIOMS VIII
• Future for analysis of spontaneous reports and other healthcare data with potential applicability to pharmacovigilance
• Case studies in spontaneous reporting, difficult issues, and real-world implementation.
