The Web-Informed Services (WIS) comprises continuous monitoring of information from the Internet, such as discussion forums, news reports and focused Internet surveys.
These data sources provide a picture of abuse and misuse of prescription drugs among a “leading edge” population of abusers and allow for timely detection of media events that may shape public perceptions and/or lead to regulatory actions.
WIS Internet Monitoring, Surveys on Prescription Drug Misuse, and Media-GRIID™ reports on select Internet chatter about drugs and pharmaceutical products that help clients understand the context of prescription abuse and monitor abuse trends.
WIS data also include results from Internet surveys conducted by Inflexxion®.
Taken together in a complementary fashion, WIS, ASI-MV® Connect and CHAT® are powerful tools that help pharmaceutical companies identify and address patterns in prescription drug misuse and abuse.
