This session explores how we might leverage artificial intelligence (AI) approaches to assist patient recruitment. We will provide a conceptual overview of key AI methodologies including machine learning, natural language processing and network mapping, and explore how these operate in the context of structured and unstructured data such as the data found in electronic health records. We will review case studies to illustrate AI in action in aiding patient matching and selection for clinical trials, including recent experience using IBM Explorys. We will conclude with an interactive panel discussion.

Learning Objectives

Describe how new techniques for formulation and product manufacturing will modernize the delivery of products to patients.
