Does anyone know, on average, how long it takes for openFDA to be updated once the quarterly extracts are released? Is there a way to track this? TIA
openFDA refreshes its Drug Event endpoint once a week, which means a new quarterly FAERS release would get picked up within 7 days after the release.
You could track this, for example, by making periodic calls to https://api.fda.gov/drug/event.json and checking
meta.results.total value. It increases significantly with each FAERS release.
