UNICOM working paper on IDMP in ICSRs

A key UNICOM aim is to improve the processing and analysis of individual case safety reports (ICSR) that describe one or more suspected adverse drug reactions (ADRs) that occur in a single patient. To this end, the organisation has released the working paper “IDMP Coding Principles and Guidance for ICSRs“.

The working paper provides recommendations for practical IDMP implementation aspects (for example, PhPID generation) and for handling drug information in general (such as grouping concepts, use of name parts), aimed at improving ICSR data management and pharmacovigilance analysis.
