Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Artificial intelligence holds the promise to revolutionize health care and directly impact the clinical trials process via expediting the recruitment of eligible clinical trial patients. The systems currently developed enable higher patient enrollment rates and better trial assignment, contribute towards reducing the cost of recruitment via additional/more efficient medical tests, and facilitate analysis and integration of operational data from historical cases. This session focuses on various applications of AI in clinical trials design and patient selection.
