About FDA

Percent of MedSun hospitals (in program for at least 11 months) which have submitted at least 3 reports in previous 12 months

FY 2010 Target: 80% by 9/30/2010

Dictionary: Medical Product Safety Network (MedSun) is an adverse event reporting network of 350 hospitals established to facilitate the identification, comprehension, and resolution of adverse events due to problems with the use of medical devices. Participants use an Internet-based system that is designed to be an easy and secure way to report adverse medical device events. MedSun is an invaluable tool that aids in identifying unexpected side effects of devices that were not observed during the premarket testing, and in identifying an increase in the number of expected problems. This measure is an indicator of whether participating sites are effectively submitting reports.
