Uppsala Monitoring Centre
Uppsala Monitoring Centre (UMC) advances the science of pharmacovigilance and inspires patient safety initiatives all over the world. As an independent, non-profit foundation, we engage stakeholders who share our vision and collaborate to build a global patient safety culture. For over 40 years, we have provided scientific leadership and operational support to the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring, expanding the global pharmacovigilance network to reach more than 95% of the world’s population. We are also the developers of WHODrug Global, an international drug dictionary for medicinal product information. Use of WHODrug Global is required by both the U.S. FDA and Japan’s Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA). We are now introducing WHODrug Koda, an automated coding service, uniquely combining the use of Artificial Intelligence by machine learning, thorough and continual training of the engine, best practice agreed by industry, and UMC’s accumulated insights on drug coding. WHODrug Koda is specifically designed for increasing the efficiency, consistency and quality of drug coding, with the end goal of safer use of medicines.
