Brookings Roundtable on Active Medical Product Surveillance: Overview of the Mini-Sentinel Pilot

On September 15, the Engelberg Center hosted the second webinar in the Sentinel Initiative 101 Webinar Series, “Overview of FDA’s Mini-Sentinel Pilot.” This webinar featured a presentation from the Mini-Sentinel principal investigator, Dr. Richard Platt, Professor and Chair of the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.

Dr. Platt’s presentation described Mini-Sentinel’s capabilities and lessons learned since the contract was awarded in October, 2009.  Specific topics included:  

  • Governance principles and policies,

  • Key achievements from the Mini-Sentinel Data Core, Methods Core, and Protocol Core, and

  • An example of a recent rapid query assessment conducted by Mini-Sentinel.

The third and final webinar will cover other Sentinel Initiative activities: Federal Partners Collaboration, the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP), and the Brookings Institution’s broader convening activities.
