The FDA requires drug companies to monitor the safety of using their drugs along with reporting suspected Adverse Drug Reactions. Our client was responsible for sifting through millions of prescriptions, hospital records and FDA forms to decide on the valid cases and prepare Case Summaries suitable to be submitted to the FDA.
Alumnus automated the workflow to reduce time and cost. The automation used NLP to ‘read’ forms and plain English text. Information such as patient details, diseases, treatments and drug names was extracted. Events were collated into a timeline and a textual Case Summary was generated.
This NLP-accelerated workflow gave a better utilization of experts’ time and reduced the cycle time significantly.
