The FDA wants to mine electronic medical records for adverse event info. Regulatory Focus noted a Dec. 20 posting on the Federal Business Opportunities website that says the agency wants to partner up with a firm that will help it create a database of EMR information.

RF emphasizes the bigness of the Big Data request, and says the Beltway agency says the proposed database would have information culled from at least 10 million patients.
