AI in clinical trials
One might assume that, due to their nature, AI has no or little role to play in clinical trials. But with medical technology constantly evolving, innovation through AI is also being sought in this field. So that we can understand how the new trends in clinical trials will eventually impact upon the way we translate, let’s take a look at the use of AI in clinical trials.
AI and medical research
With so much data being collected in clinical trials, it’s no wonder that companies are looking for innovative ways to sieve through the sheer abundance of information. Luckily, this is where AI has proven to be of great use as companies now have access to software that can sort through data based on area, product or even researcher. For patients, having all this data so readily available helps medical professionals stay informed about side effects, for example, which in turn increases patient satisfaction.
Using AI to reach out to potential trial subjects
For certain trials, it’s not always easy to find local patients able to take part in a particular study. If you’re dealing with a rare illness, for example, you may need to look further afield when trying to involve subjects in pioneering new treatments. Companies are now using AI to offer patients the chance to take part in clinical trials and other services that will provide them with a huge range of benefits. Some examples of this include offering patients personalised streams, matching patients with clinical trials, assisting patients with documents, and connecting them with peer groups.
Medical trial workflows
Another great way AI is helping in clinical trials is through workflows. AI-based software can really smoothen the whole process. Such software can optimise spreadsheet management and productivity, plus a lot more. Moreover, it is now even able to help propose test molecules for certain illnesses.
So, as you can see, AI is revolutionising the way in which clinical trials are being handled, and this is just the beginning of the pharmaceutical industry’s journey. It won’t be long before it is playing an even more important role in the world of clinical trials. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any new major developments, and in the meantime, if you need to translate any of your clinical trial documentation, we’re here to help!
