Project - Impact and Uses/Benefits

Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) are harmful or unpleasant reactions due to an intervention related to the use of a medicinal product. ADRs may complicate patients’ medical conditions, increase hospital admission, and contribute to more morbidity or even death. It was estimated that 5.3% of hospital admissions were associated with ADRs, and higher rates were found in elderly patients who were likely to be receiving multiple medications for long-term illnesses (Hofer-Dueckelmann et al., 2011).

Harnessing social media for drug safety detection will provide an early signal to reduce the impact of the adverse drug reactions to patients.
