The introduction (and growing acceptance) of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the medical field has brought unimaginable possibilities. It is projected to change how medicine is discovered, developed, and used among the population. With the results expected to impact the field of pharmacovigilance, the future of medicine and the prospects are all fascinating. 

In this blog, we discuss how AI is changing the face of pharmacovigilance training. We also examine the impact that AI systems will have on the advancement of clinical research. If you are fascinated by these prospects and want to pursue your interest in clinical research, the NeuAge Institute has a specially designed training program that will suit you.

AI and Clinical Research and Pharmacovigilance

Artificial Intelligence can analyze the most complicated and exhaustive data sources in record time. This is an advantage that clinical research and pharmacovigilance teams can leverage. It can review many literature sources on subjects important to research teams and pick out relevant information from them.

It can also extract data relevant to trial patients to determine their suitability for testing with a drug candidate or medical procedure. Nowadays, AI applications have been incorporated into clinical research training and active practice due to their many advantages. Here, we highlight a few ways that AI has positively impacted the field of pharmacovigilance. 

Optimizing Data Mining and Patient Monitoring

AI algorithms can extract and analyze patient data from vast databases or source files (e.g., electronic health records, medical imaging, and genetic information) and cull out vital information from them quickly. The sources could be electronic health records, science-based literature, social media, and other unconventional sources – structured or not. 

AI-powered monitoring systems enable continuous, real-time tracking of patient vital signs, symptoms, and medication adherence. By analyzing this data, AI algorithms can detect early warning signs, alert healthcare providers to potential issues, and facilitate timely interventions.These observations can be used by people in pharmacovigilance to make relevant inferences.

AI’s unlimited data extraction and analysis capacity can enhance the patient monitoring experience. It achieves this with its ability to pick up vast amounts of patient data and all its nuances. So, if a clinical trial team is to observe a patient for their body’s reaction to a drug candidate for an extended period, they would only need to scrutinize the patient’s available data. 

They could get AI to collect data from the patient’s future health records, social media activity, online shopping history, and more to establish patterns pointing to a projected or unanticipated outcome. The information gathered can help them conclude what performance the drug has in relation. 

AI algorithms can analyze patient data to stratify individuals based on their risk profiles. This enables healthcare providers to prioritize resources, identify high-risk patients who require closer monitoring, and allocate interventions accordingly.

Biosimulation

AI algorithms like machine learning can reproduce real-life clinical trial proceedings to predict what effects drugs and other pharmaceutical products will have on certain people. In a process known as predictive modeling, AI systems can achieve simulation of a drug’s biological interaction with patients. And with the results obtained from the simulation, the drug investigators can make educated inferences about the drug’s potential safety and efficacy issues.

Our Drug Development, Clinical Research, Drug Safety, and Pharmacovigilance Certificate program enables students to gain knowledge of Good Clinical Practices (GCP), the regulatory framework for drug development, the organization and management of clinical studies carried out over several phases to evaluate the safety and efficacy of medicines, vaccines, and devices, as well as quality assurance concepts and current pharmacovigilance methodologies, including Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVP).

Risk Assessment for Clinical Trials

AI algorithms can analyze data from various sources to determine how safe it is to use a specific drug on specific patients. Using critical consideration factors like patient demographics, and genetic and medical information, AI algorithms can scour tons of patient data to check if a patient may not fare well with the drug candidate.

Using their data, it could identify the risks associated with specific drug interactions with the test patients. This helps trial teams avoid unforeseen complications and adverse reactions that would have resulted from the trials. With this risk assessment being a critical discourse issue in most clinical research courses, it can only mean that AI will come in handy soon.
