Adverse drug event (ADE) surveillance is needed to inform processes and methods for prevention. Voluntary reporting and manual chart review have limitations. Automated surveillance systems are gaining recognition and provide useful information to supplement the other methods. Preliminary evaluation of a pediatric automated adverse drug event application shows a positive predictive value of 13%, discovering events with harm in 1.3% of inpatient admissions.
