Adverse Event Vigilance Data On Canadian Drugs


  • RSS
  • Cite

This published data visualization app is based on Health Canada's Vigilance Database on Drug's Adverse Events (side effect reports) APIs. I created this data visualization alongside a programmed database since there has always been a need for quick retrieval of 'Big Data'.

Health Canada’s large dataset covers years 1965 until today. They update it quarterly. I published this light versioned data visualization by only featuring the latest quarter's data. It provides data interactively faster. I can cover more if required.

My goal is to reduce the work load of those who utilize such data periodically.
