Event Overview:

Artificial Intelligence and advanced analytics have the potential to revolutionize clinical trial protocol design. Real-world patient data and AI can be leveraged together to facilitate data-driven decision making throughout the trial design continuum, including:

  • Characterizing response groups and disease clusters to aid in subgroup selection and personalized treatment approached
  • Generating and evaluating protocols via simulations to predict clinical outcomes, protocol feasibility, and commercial viability
  • Analyzing novel protocol parameters to improve efficiency and inform future trial design
  • Improving diversity in clinical trials by identifying barriers to participation and mitigating bias in trial design

These advancements have the potential to enhance the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and success rates of clinical trials, ultimately benefiting patients, health systems and researchers.

Three key take-aways

In this webinar, data science experts will discuss how real-world data can be used to:

  • Help identify patient subgroups that may respond differently to interventions
  • Design protocols to more accurately reflect the actual patient population to generate more representative results
  • Assess if the initial patient eligibility criteria can be adjusted to obtain a better approximation from efficacy to effectiveness
