HIPAA-compliant technology allows pharmaceutical companies to automate the laborious process of writing regulatory Clinical Study Reports on medications and bring them to market up to 40% faster
AX Semantics, an AI-powered, Natural Language Generation (NLG) market leader, announced a new range of HIPAA-compliant content generation software for the pharmaceutical sector, which will allow pharmaceutical companies to generate regulatory Clinical Study Reports (CSRs) on medications up to 40% faster by automating 30% of writing the CSR.

“In addition to its effect on human lives and the economy, the coronavirus pandemic has exposed the hurdles pharma companies must overcome to get medication to patients. These processes are doubtless important to keep medications safe, but they also rely on outdated processes,“ said Saim Rolf Alkan, CEO and founder of AX Semantics. “Content automation driven by NLG technology connects to the clinical study database and instantly generates HIPAA-compliant, auditable reports that help pharmaceutical companies meet regulatory requirements at a time when getting the right medications and vaccines approved as expeditiously as possible is critical to ensure global public health.”
AX Semantics Upends the Status Quo.
The most challenging phase of bringing a drug to market is the human drug trial, or Phase III, during which time, clinicians must write a CSR that describes the pharmacological impacts and trial outcomes. Typically, data collected from the human drug trials is gathered and medical writing teams manually compile the report, however, this outdated, onerous and time-consuming process can potentially delay life-saving medications from coming to market sooner and cost pharmaceutical companies millions. A capacity challenge also exists. Writing a CSR report typically takes several months to complete, which limits the number of CSRs a team of medical writers can produce annually. Some pharmaceutical companies have tried using templates to overcome the manual writing process challenge, however the templates have been found to be too complex and rigid for the different scenarios the CSR encompasses. For example, acceptable mortality rates can differ significantly depending on the drug that is being trialed: a drug that treats late stage cancer may have a mortality rate of 8%, which is acceptable, but a rate that high for a drug that treats a migraine headache is completely unacceptable. Templates cannot deal with these types of different scenarios, which severely limits their value.
