Pharmaca Fennica services also include DHPC communication and risk minimisation materials


The Pharmaceutical Information Centre’s Pharmaca Fennica drug datahub is very versatile. In addition to online services, mobile app and handbook, the Pharmaca Fennica database is used as part of patient and pharmacy databases. The Pharmaca Fennica services are constantly being developed: new materials related to patient safety were recently added to the services, for example.

New drugs on the market are increasingly expensive and directed to increasingly smaller subsets of patients. Combined with the ageing population and increasing overall costs of health care, the issue of the price of treatment versus its benefits is becoming increasingly important. The effectiveness of treatment, expressed in concepts like Real World Data (RWD) and Real World Evidence (RWE), is the topic of at least half of the articles written by the pharmaceutical and health care sector.
