An expert technical workshop was convened to discuss distributed data networks and their use in active medical product surveillance.

This one-day technical workshop identified key features of existing data networks conducting medical product safety surveillance; discussed data infrastructure needs for a future national active surveillance system; and discussed barriers and explored solutions to private data environment participation in active surveillance. The overarching goal of the meeting was to stimulate productive discussion and exchange of ideas on these topics.

Convened by the Engelberg Center for Health Care Reform at Brookings and supported by a grant from the Food and Drug Administration.
