#12 Improving signal detection with vigiGroup – Jim Barrett & Joe Mitchell
Show Notes

Statistical tools can not only cut through the noise in large pharmacovigilance databases. They can also help identify more clinically meaningful patterns in the data. Uppsala Monitoring Centre’s Jim Barrett and Joe Mitchell explain how vigiGroup, a novel clustering algorithm, can bring value to signal detection.

Tune in to find out:

  • What the limits of traditional disproportionality analysis are
  • How clustering algorithms can improve current signal detection practices
  • How vigiGroup has helped monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines so far
