OpenSourcePV is a company founded by Lionel Van Holle in 2019 with the ambition to make use of free & open source technologies to raise the standards of pharmacovigilance and provide an affordable & competitive alternative to expensive softwares specialized into pharmacovigilance.

In 2014, Lionel started his journey breaking free GSK Vaccines from the monopoly of Empirica Signal (ORACLE) by building an in-house system of signal detection using a mixed solution based on SAS/Spotfire.

With the booming of R packages, he realized that all of the SAS or Spotfire functionalities used for the in house project could be matched or exceeded by R packages. Beyond matching or exceeding current standards, some functionalities brought by packages such as R markdown have the potential to break silos between distinct groups such as reporting, analysis and medical writing and be game changers in the industry.

The current suite of products built by OpenSourcePV includes:
  • VAERS Analytics
  • FAERS Analytics
  • StandAlone Signal Detection
  • Competitive Intelligence in Pharmacovigilance
  • CrossOrganizational Signal Detection & Management
