DISQOVER for identifying clinical trial opportunities

Clinical study design and clinical trials are all about spotting the right opportunities at the right time. Depending on your role in the process, this can take various forms, from figuring out which treatments are worth setting up trials for to determining which sites to partner with, and everything in between. With its unique semantic search capabilities and data science intelligence, DISQOVER opens up a whole new range of possibilities.

"On average, data researchers spend around one day per week gathering information."

Unlock the value of semantic search

With DISQOVER, researchers and study designers gain access to a wealth of data from disparate sources that can be easily compared and visualized insightfully. This revolutionizes several main activities, such as:

  • finding similar trials, trials addressing similar issues, or trials applying similar techniques, for a more comprehensive literature review;
  • discovering possible new endpoints or measures used in similar studies;
  • determining the suitability of eligibility criteria and identifying potentially significant omissions;
  • analyzing existing studies for criteria associated with failures to boost chances of success
  • identifying the most suitable sites for a study based on their previous experience with similar trials or the potential to expand their portfolio.
  • identifying which sites are most likely to attract patients who will respond to the studied treatment.
  • finding out whether a site has the capabilities to carry out a trial in a specific area, such as patient recruitment, data management and analysis, and more.
