This project is a continuation of the development of ConText, a Web Application that’s purpose is to assist FDA Agents in their work of analyzing FDA's Adverse Event Reporting System reports and finding potential patterns between Drug Related incidents. Our focus was on updating numerous previously built functions of the project while also providing brand new features that would make navigating through reports more efficient. Our changes have improved upon the functionality of the previous prototype, making it easier for an agent to sort through the thousands of reports in their workload. This brings the FDA one step closer in realizing their goal in streamlining their pharmacovigilance and potentially saving countless lives.
