The objective of this study was to develop an indigenous Googlebased Android mobile application known as “ADR PvPI” and to analyze the ADRrelated data reported through this mobile application on pilot basis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The ADR PvPI mobile application was indigenously developed by NCCPvPI officials within 6 months.

This article provides an overview of the salient features of ADR PvPI mobile application, guides on how to fillin ADRs, reporting trends of ADR, types of ADR as per System Organ Class and pharmacological classes of drugs. RESULTS: Till date, >5500 users have downloaded the app with an average rating of 4.26. In that tenure, 262 reports have been received through ADR PvPI mobile app. During the year 2017, 3.55% of reports were received through ADR PvPI mobile app and the percentage of reports received by 2018 was 96.45%.
