On June 1, the Engelberg Center hosted the third Brookings Active Surveillance Implementation Council meeting, with Council members gathering to discuss the role of medical product developers in active medical product surveillance and specifically their role in improving methods.

Discussion focused on medical product developer’s perspectives, including what role developers want to play in active surveillance and possible approaches for achieving such roles. In addition, participants discussed the role OMOP, Mini-Sentinel, and other federal initiatives have played in addressing developer concerns around methods for active surveillance, as well as types of organizational models that could support a long-term strategy for methods research and development.
