POCA

Phonetic and Orthographic Computer Analysis

POCA (Phonetic and Orthographic Computer Analysis) is an analytic tool developed by the FDA, and now also used by other regulatory authorities, to help identify and assess the similarity of a proposed proprietary name to other proprietary or established names, when spoken or written. It then assigns a percent similarity score to a given name pair.

The results can be produced quickly, depending on the number of names, with or without analysis. Please contact Med-ERRS for more information.
