How AI is changing cancer research, the site perspective

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Thursday, October 19, 2023

Oncology sites across the US are investing in AI to drive operational performance in the face of complex protocols, stringent eligibility criteria, high rates of protocol deviations and high dropout rates.

Using AI in cancer research to analyze electronic medical records and identify patients with specific genetic markers can help design clinical trial protocols by optimizing inclusion/exclusion criteria; it can help assess site feasibility and select research sites with access to eligible patients; and it can help reduce the time site staff spend on manual chart reviews to accelerate recruitment.

But, for AI to deliver on its promise, sponsors need to understand how to partner with AI-driven sites.

Join this webinar for an inside look at how an oncology research site is using AI to address the complexities of oncology study operations.
