MedDRA license for a research collaborative


(Maxim Moinat) #1

Hi, for a public-private consortium, PIONEER, we would like to request a license for MedDRA. Currently, we are trying to figure out whether we can apply for a license as a consortium, which is not a legal entity. Does anyone have experience with requesting a MedDRA license for a research collaborative?

And does OHDSI itself have a license for MedDRA? Or do we use the one from an industry partner? @Christian_Reich @Alexdavv

Hi Maxim, PIONEEER is, as you pointed out, not a legal entity.

The best way is thus to have the request for the license done by the Coordinator (or a designated partner) on behalf of the Consortium partners, with clear indication of the list of end-users to avoid confusion issues in terms of access rights.

Sorry, guys. Every data holder has to do it. If you are an academic institutions. If not tell them it’s for OHDSI research, they are very friendly.
