Correlate Health Care and Life Sciences Data
Ensure availability of integrable and meaningful information
Use semantic information management to align Health Care and Life Sciences data
It is hard to find another industry where having the right data is as important or impactful. Life Sciences professionals need data of many kinds, from numerous perspectives and on multiple topics ranging from gene expression studies to clinical observations. They must be able to bring such data together simply and readily in order to view, explore, and analyze it. Sourcing and aligning information in a given context is a key challenge.
Pharmas, biotechs, and medical informatics companies are increasingly dependent on the timely access to unified information. In addition to the information growth, other factors that drive these requirements are:
Changing information requirements – as a result of evolving compliance rules and regulations, competitive pressures, and new strategies
The need to integrate data from third parties – including scientific journals, patent databases, CROs, CMOs, EMRs, regulators, or public Web content
Wide variety of formats – from highly structured databases to completely unstructured documents
Accessing, searching and using information is motivated by many goals, such as the need to:
- increase the efficiency of the target and lead drug discovery processes
- provide knowledgeable researchers, physicians and payers with credible information
- correlate data from clinical trials across multiple studies
- ensure the right treatment to the right person at the right price
Life Sciences vocabularies such as SNOMED CT, ICD10, MedDRA are key to aligning and ensuring integrity of this information.
TopQuadrant’s semantic standards-based approach to Vocabulary Management delivers benefits such as:
Combine, prepare and exchange information more reliably because you understand what it means and how it is used.
Faster time to delivery:
Ability to understand the meaning of data results in faster delivery of the right data to the decision makers and processes that need it.
The use of standard vocabularies helps to reliably align disparate data feeds and meet compliance requirements.
To discover key information, relationships and patterns, stakeholders need to search, query, and question any aspect of the data from any angle.
