Data Science, AI, and Machine Learning: The Path to Improved Safety

Webcasts

October 4th 2022 9 am CT |10 am ET | 3 pm BST | 4 pm CET Managing drug, vaccine, and device safety has become increasingly challenging as companies are confronted with adverse event (AE) caseloads rising as much as 30-50% per year. Constrained resources and limited qualified outsourcing options have created the need to streamline the pharmacovigilance/multivigilance process.

Event Overview:

As safety departments seek ways to improve medicinal product safety and protect patients, data science approaches offer significant promise. What’s possible, what's realistic, and what’s the value to the industry and public?


Managing drug, vaccine, and device safety has become increasingly challenging as companies are confronted with adverse event (AE) caseloads rising as much as 30-50% per year. Constrained resources and limited qualified outsourcing options have created the need to streamline the pharmacovigilance/multivigilance process.


A well-designed data science approach can incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), rule-based automation, statistical algorithms, and advanced analytics to empower better safety insights, inform human decisions, eliminate tedious and repetitive tasks, improve data quality, and allow organizations to focus their human resources on high-value activities.


With nearly every process in multivigilance having the potential to benefit from data science, what are the keys to successfully deploying it? What are the challenges? What’s been overpromised?


Key Learning Objectives:

  • Use of data science in safety case management and signal management
  • Applying artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to Pharmacovigilance
  • Improving efficiencies with rule-based automation, statistical algorithms, and advanced analytics


Who Should Attend:

  • VPs and QPPVs of safety
  • Case processing specialists
  • Safety evaluators
  • Safety IT professionals
  • Safety managers
