Building Text Analysis Models to Understand & Predict Adverse Events Occurring With FDA-Approved Drugs

Various drugs approved by the FDA have been associated with adverse medical events in patients. These events are reported to the FDA through different sources, including physicians at hospitals and clinics, pharmacists, and patients. Most of these adverse events are documented in texts. However, manual analysis of these texts for root cause are time consuming and produce qualitative results at best. This session shows how building text analysis models in order to understand the themes related to drug adverse events can help us quantitatively understand which adverse events are most common within a cluster of FDA-approved drugs.
