Webinar - Clinical Trials: Supporting key decision making with text mining

March 1, 2017

Why attend this webinar? Understand how text analytics can help you speed site selection, improve efficiency and support key decision making

It’s well-known that clinical trials are one of the most expensive parts of the drug development process; thus one of the goals of clinical trial professionals is to increase efficiency along the process.  Using the ClinicalTrials.gov data set as an example, this webinar will demonstrate how I2E's powerful and agile text mining capabilities can be used to extract relevant information about clinical trials to support decision making.

ClinicalTrials.gov is a respected source of information about federally and privately supported clinical trials. This webinar looks at how to go beyond the conventional search approach to extract more precise facts and relationships.

During the clinical trials phase of drug development some of the key aims are to:

  • Create a shortlist of existing clinical trial sites from which to select the most appropriate site for a new trial
  • Monitor the status or progress of known competitors


Duration: 30 minutes including Q&A


Who should attend?  Managers, specialists, informaticians involved in Clinical Trial planning & analytics, strategic product & pipeline intelligence, comparative effectiveness, real-world data access
