DISQOVER for identifying clinical trial opportunities

Clinical study design and clinical trials are all about spotting the right opportunities at the right time. Depending your role in the process, this can take various forms, from figuring out which treatments are worth setting up trials for to determine 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.

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 in an insightful way. This revolutionizes a number of central 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 important omissions;
  • analyzing existing studies for criteria associated with failures to boost chances of success
  • and much more.

Clinical trial finding endpoints

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

Search, filter and compare clinical studies

To make this possible, DISQOVER is built upon intelligent semantic search and filter technologies. These enable users to reduce a very large set of clinical studies and other data points into a manageable subset.

Under the hood is a powerful engine that…

  • integrates data from a range of sources and automatically recognizes studies reported multiple times and merges the information;
  • standardizes filter criteria across databases – e.g., trial phase – and maps these to concepts for further contextual enrichment – including intervention type, sponsor, study site and characteristics, etc.
  • allows users to ‘backtrack’ links to identified concepts, including indication, intervention, study site, sponsor and investigator.
  • creates comprehensive dashboards that offer insights from a chosen point of view, e.g., the disease, the site, the company, or the treatment.

In this demo, you will discover how to find clinical study sites related to a specific subset of clinical studies. Due to the integration and harmonization of multiple clinical study repositories, finding insights into the 500.000+ available clinical studies is fast and easy.
