Comment on the Sentinel Initiative
In line with FDA’s Transparency Task Force efforts, FDA is encouraging public comment on the Sentinel Initiative. The Sentinel Initiative is an FDA collaborative effort to develop a national electronic system (Sentinel System) that will transform FDA’s ability to track the safety of drugs, biologics, medical devices—ultimately all FDA-regulated products—once they reach the market. By seeking public comment via an open discussion room, FDA is expanding its ability to get new ideas and guidance from the public in near real time. To contribute ideas on the Initiative and related documents, please visit http://www.fda.gov/Safety/FDAsSentinelInitiative/default.htm.
We look forward to your participation.
