When it comes to the Interaction Checker - Profile Analysis tool, what distinguishes the complete version from the essential version of RxVigilance Web?

The powerful profile analysis tool can be used to generate numerous alerts to identify potential problems. These alerts vary depending on the version of the product.

Potential alerts

Please note that for both RxVigilance essential and complete web versions, the drugs to be analysed and the patient information must be entered manually in the Interaction Checker - Profile Analysis tool, and that therefore the alerts generated will be based on the data provided.

If you have access to the integrated version, for example in a pharmacy management system (PMS) or an electronic medical record (EMR), up to 18 different alert types are automatically generated by the software and on the basis of the data it contains. 

The following table highlights the main differences between the two web versions.
