NESTcc is seeking to identify organizations that have real-world data (RWD) systems (e.g., electronic health records [EHR], claims system, registry or other) and are interested in participating in a federated active surveillance system as a Data Partner.

Key priorities for the work include:

  • Delivering a national system to advance safety signal detection (generation) and refinement
  • Establishing procedures to ensure data quality and reliability
  • Building technical services in secure, scalable and modular environments to accommodate the addition of future, innovative methodologies
  • Developing applications beyond post-market safety while designing business practices and controls to encourage use by diverse constituents of the medical device ecosystem.

This Active Surveillance Data Partner RFI opportunity is open to medical device, imaging and diagnostic technology manufacturers as well as hospitals and academic research institutions regardless of whether they are currently a NESTcc Network Collaborator.

Interested organizations should submit their completed statement of interest via email ( on or before Monday, January 10, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
