Critical Medical Information System allows two-way information sharing of information on reported drug and food allergies. between the EMR systems of national healthcare providers.

Why Should I report adverse events?

When a drug is newly marketed, its safety profile is generally limited to that identified in clinical trials, where evidence is generated based on a small group of individuals who meet specified inclusion and exclusion criteria. Rare AEs also known as adverse events may only surface when many more patients with varying medical conditions get exposed to the drug after it is approved for use in the market. With each AE report received, the safety profile of the drug becomes clearer. This allows HSA to better understand the risk factors of the AEs related to each drug. Such information is valuable for safety monitoring and facilitates prompt detection of potential safety signals, allowing HSA to take appropriate action in a timely manner.

Where does the report go?

Adverse Events reports are submitted through the CMIS e-services and will be reflected on patients’ medical records, then AE reports are received by the HSA.
