      Enhancing key PV Solutions to boost the efficiency of drug safety workflows Sherry Winter, Senior Solution Marketing Manager at Elsevier Upcoming: Oct 23 2018 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    • Databases of peer-reviewed biomedical literature and regulatory documents are crucial sources for pharmacovigilance activities. When monitored properly, they yield drug safety signals that are essential for risk–benefit assessments and adverse event reports. However, both are vast resources that can be challenging to monitor efficiently and accurately, especially if different interfaces are needed to access each database.

      In 2018, Elsevier is enhancing key solutions for pharmaceutical R&D as part of ongoing efforts to improve the comprehensiveness, efficiency, accuracy and compliance of pharmacovigilance-focused research. By ensuring that all relevant information is captured efficiently, the company is helping drug safety and pharmacovigilance teams deliver considerable improvements in health-critical workflows.

      This webinar focuses on 2018 enhancements to Embase, PharmaPendium and QUOSA PV, showing how each solution offers dedicated means to boost the efficiency and accuracy of the monitoring of relevant databases, assessment of captured information, and supervision of the workflow. These enhancements include:
      - A dedicated Embase query form for efficient creation and validation of the complex search strings needed for high-recall, high-precision literature searching
      - An Embase French Local Language Module to extend the reach of Embase into specially selected French-language literature
      - More capabilities in PharmaPendium for searching the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS)
      - Even more flexible means to run and oversee GxP-compliant workflows through QUOSA PV, with new functionalities for medical review, signal management and quality assurance. The webinar will address these solutions and enhancements in the context of comprehensive support for the goals of pharmacovigilance.

    • Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine
      Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Paul Hellwig Director, Research & Development, at Elsevier Health Analytics Recorded: Feb 16 2017 1:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.

      Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.
