ESAC, Inc. has been awarded a multi-year contract to support the FDA Individual Case Safety Report (ICSR) Standard
September 30, 2017
The HL7 Individual Case Safety Report (ICSR) standard is the data standard which permits the capture of adverse events data in a format that FDA can process, review, and archive. ESAC was contracted to work with the various FDA centers to include the additional data elements required for FDA adverse event reporting. This work effort includes:
Developing, updating, and maintaining an open source Schematron document based on the business rules and data relationships for FDA regulated adverse event data
Develop HL7 ICSR implementation guide to be utilized by industry and ICSR software developers to generate valid regulatory submissions for processing, reviewing, and archiving by FDA
We are quite impressed with not only by the technical skills provided by ESAC's software engineers but also by the depth and breadth of their subject matter experts who have provided guidance on standards and interoperability, quality assurance, and project management issues.
ESAC significantly improved the quality of bioinformatics applications of the NCI CBIIT program using industry best practices to ensure systems were validated both functionally and scientifically for use by the community.
