Health care delivery revolves around accurate documentation, with data management free from error. A seemingly insignificant typographical error can cause short- and long-term problems that may lead to inaccurate records and misinformation. This report presents an overview of input errors in the US Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporti...

UNSTRUCTURED We use a data driven approach on a cleaned FAERS database to determine the adverse drug reaction severity of several covid-19 drug combinations and further investigate their safety for vulnerable populations such as individuals 65 years and older. Our key findings include 1. hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine is associated with increased a...

Big Data courses in which students are asked to carry out Big Data projects are becoming more frequent as a part of University Engineering curriculum. In these courses, instructors and students must face a series of special characteristics, difficulties and challenges that it is important to know about beforehand, so the lecturer can better plan th...

Most modern machine learning research is devoted to improving the accuracy of prediction. However, less attention is paid to the deployment of the machine and deep learning systems, supervised/unsupervised techniques for mining healthcare data, and time series similarity and irregular temporal data analysis [item 1)–9) in the Appendix]. Most deploy...

Background: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS), contains information on adverse drug events and medication error reports submitted to the FDA through the MedWatch program. A significant number of adverse events reported in the FAERS database have been for opioid use. The objective of this study was to dete...

... As described in a related report, the DRUG data files in the FAERS database were downloaded, cleaned, and standardized using a combination of data cleaning tools and manual correction techniques. 7 The quarterly reports from 2004 to 2016, yielded 31,921,755 records from which the frequency counts were determined. ...
... Taking such an approach increases the likelihood of effective sensemaking (based on the planned development activity), which leads to performance reflection, development, and, ultimately, performance improvement, whilst also removing the focus on data inaccuracies or shortfalls. However, another point to highlight, is that data quality issues directly from erroneous data entry by practitioners [66,67], may improve if practitioners are given the opportunity and resources to reflect upon such data regularly. In short, the process of reflecting on data may improve its quality cyclically, making it more effective for future reflection. ...
... At the same time, valuable data can be gathered, processed, analyzed, and extracted quickly. The allure of DB is not in its size, but in the fact, that such vast amounts of data can generate ever-increasing value [3]. From an analysis of the problems that exist in CPE examination, Neumann and others discussed the necessity of CPE examination reform and practice and on this basis proposed CPE examination reform and practice [4]. ...
... An examination by Veronin and colleagues from 2019 describes the US Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) as an important source of adverse event detection for opioid medications. 4 This study found that reports of oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl accounted for more than half of all opioid adverse event reports. 4 Another examination by McDonald and Srisopa used the FAERS database to identify predictors of serious life-threatening opioid adverse events and found that the risk of taking an opioid and benzodiazepine together with additional sedative medication increased the risk of a serious adverse event by nearly 19 times. ...
