Utilizing Big Data to Enhance Patient Recruitment

On Wednesday 22 February 2017 at 11:45 AM MDCPartners’ Strategic Analyst in Oncology, Dr Jonathan Crowther, will talk about:

Utilizing big data to enhance patient recruitment: Analyzing public information for trial feasibility and site selection

The path to clinical trial success is burdened with underperforming site selection, poor patient recruitment and frequent delays. Such barriers result in failures to meet targets and dwindling statistical significance. Comprehensive planning via a feasibility survey can alleviate these issues however, it has been suggested that the accuracy of a survey may be below 10%. As big data becomes more applicable in the clinical trial setting, capitalizing on the wealth of publicly available clinical data is essential. The clinical business intelligence platform ta-Scan semantically links trial, investigator and site information to provide a robust feasibility analysis to help address the following questions:

  • Estimation of appropriate patient cohorts
  • Key Opinion Leaders in the field
  • Competing and historic trials across the therapeutic area
  • Suitable geographic setting for a trial
  • IRB and timing issues that may affect trial start-up

Join us in London

NEWS RELEASE: MDCPartners launches new ta-Scan software that ‘will revolutionize’ the way pharmaceutical companies plan for the future

Antwerp, Belgium | 24 January 2017 – MDCPartners today launches ta-Scan 5, an update of its global web-based platform that analyses clinical trial data. The new platform is set to revolutionize the way pharmaceutical researchers plan for the future, by providing unrivaled insights that will help inform future business decisions.

The new ta-Scan 5 is the first software of its kind to use exceptionally powerful algorithms to analyse clinical data from multiple global public sources in its patented Trial Cloud®. The new version 5 will mean that pharmaceutical companies are able to obtain more valuable insights on clinical research than ever before, via a more streamlined process.

The software will allow companies to go into more detail on clinical trial research than ever before, with access to over 250,000 clinical trials and 7 million scientific and clinical experts. This will provide unique insights on specific compounds, research institutes, clinical centers, patient populations, key investigators and competitor analysis to help strategic decision making.

“We believe the opportunity in clinical business intelligence is the freedom to look at data from multiple sources, from any region, combined into one system that’s easy to use. The new ta-Scan 5 does just that – it taps into vast amounts of information and provides comprehensive analysis that can be broken down easily. Pharmaceutical companies are now starting to realize their opportunities in gathering the most valuable business intelligence, and I believe the ability of this software will fundamentally change the way clinical research is planned and executed across the industry,” comments David Cocker, CSO for MDCPartners, who is presenting this week at the SCOPE Summit in Miami, Florida.

“For the first time ever, MDCPartners has been able to simplify complex trial-related queries and perform deep analysis using the most powerful algorithms yet. Using Real World Solutions, we can link internal and external information together through a portal, to generate a comprehensive landscape and get a full view of where the competing trials are conducted, and where the patient populations are. Before, we couldn’t link this information, now it is at our fingertips,” comments Dr Bart Naudts, Lead Data Architect at MDCPartners.

The ta-Scan web platform has been used by pharmaceutical and biotech researchers for the last decade. It has transformed and advanced the process of intelligence gathering and analyzes across the industry.

Notes to Editors

About ta-Scan

ta-Scan is an intelligence web platform for clinical development, which analyses data for trial planning, expert profiling, disease landscape and competitive intelligence, for researchers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. It was launched nearly a decade ago to transform and advance the intelligence gathering and analyses that enable clinical development.

Powerful algorithms enable researchers to bypass print publications, restrictive registries and dense databases for the insights they need to make evidence-based decisions. With ta-Scan, users can locate key opinion leader (KOL) associations, investigators with specific therapeutic experience, or institutes with the capacity to conduct complex protocols.

ta-Scan 5 is the updated model of ta-Scan, which was recently launched by MDCPartners at the SCOPE Summit in Miami, Florida, in January 2017. It offers a uniquely streamlined and simplified intelligence gathering process and improves data access and value, allowing for a more intuitive, business-oriented workflow.

ta-Scan 5 features a refined and robust search engine tool which activates alternative information pathways with the flexibility to adjust query filters with ease. The number and potential combination of trial-related queries is unrestricted, meaning that hundreds of data classes are semantically connected that can be accessed by one query.
