Briefs: FDA seeks keyword software

The Food and Drug Administration wants software that can scan narratives from a few sentences to a few paragraphs, recognize keywords and phrases and display them, and recommend correct or preferred terms for each word or phrase.

The software will be used for the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition's Adverse Event Reporting System, a surveillance system that brings together adverse event reports and consumer complaints into one database. Additional information can be found on, solicitation no. reference-number-RFI-0001. Responses are due by March 11.
