Open-source Package for Clinical Safety reporting

The goal of the Clinical Safety Reporting Work Product Team was to shift from manual source data verification (SDV) to a common analytics driven approach to detect Adverse event (AE) under-reporting in clinical trials.

It is based on bootstrap resampling and was developed by Roche and is being  explored and utilised by Merck, Biogen, Pfizer and Bayer.

Here are the links to the Code repository and documentation.
