Description

Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) has become a central concern for many healthcare providers (FDA, \ 2016). It is well known that adverse reactions to drugs are a reason for several health problems. According \ to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimation, ADRs are the 4th leading cause of death. The \ prevalence of ADRs demands a simple ADR reporting process. The ADR reporting process involves many \ stakeholders such as the FDA, the patient, and the health professional. The research uncovered a \ significant lack of communication among the stakeholders, thus the research goal is to improve this lack \ of communication. This research paper is an extension of a previous research in progress; Toward \ Improving Adverse Drug Reactions Reporting From Twitter (Alghamdi S, & Mujallid O, 2016); that \ provided the research problem, method, methodology, and designs the artifacts. This paper provides \ iterations of the design process, evaluation and presented findings as a descriptive analysis.
