Pharmacovigilance

Keeping patients safe – by understanding their language.

Pain Points

Case volumes growing exponentially

Multiple languages

Effort and cost intensive

Highly manual process

Heterogeneous input

Traditional methods are slow

Regulatory filing deadlines (fines)

Delays to market equates to lost revenue

Iconic’s Case Intake Workflow

Pharmacovigilance Diagram

The process of recording adverse events involves accepting adverse event reports from various sources from around the world. These reports need to be triaged and categorized according to the product, the side effects and other pieces of information, such as dosage, in order to generate a case and, where relevant, make a regulatory submission. Automation can play a crucial role in reducing the time it takes to file a report. Starting with the initial file intake and preparation step, we can make use of file handlers and optical character recognition to get text into machine-readable format. Then, of course, high-quality adapted Neural MT can be deployed to homogenize reports into English for rapid processing. After that, various AI, machine learning and NLP methods can be used to automate document classification, detect specific entities, extract information for case generation and summarization.
