Detect & Refine Safety Signals Faster with CVW Longitudinal

The Commonwealth Vigilance Workbench (CVW) is an integrated technology platform for signal detection which allows medical product developers to detect, track and refine safety signals using evidence across numerous data sources. CVW Longitudinal is a module that helps medical product safety teams analyze large observational healthcare datasets. It provides out of the box analytics on multiple electronic medical record and health insurance claims databases and is cloud-based with no IT infrastructure required. CVW Longitudinal is developed and supported by the safety and signal detection experts at Commonwealth Informatics and builds on research performed by the Uppsala Monitoring Centre (UMC).

Key Benefits

  1. Reduce Time – Reach closure on safety signals earlier and with greater confidence by providing safety review teams with direct access to healthcare data resources earlier in the signal refinement process.
  2. Optimize Resources  – CVW Longitudinal is responsive enough that safety teams with all of the necessary expertise can iterate rapidly with the software and data to explore safety questions. 
  3. Develop Deeper Insights – Healthcare data complements the information gained from analysis of spontaneous reports and provides insight into the real world treatment situation surrounding a reported adverse event.
