Location: LL21 A/B

Who is this presentation for?

  • Those who work in quality control and assurance, and data management
  • Those with an interest in an innovative method for data verification using AI capabilities such as NLP and machine learning




The size and the complexity of regulatory submissions to health authorities are consistently increasing. But the process associated with quality checks hasn’t changed for decades; it’s still manual, laborious, time consuming, and error prone. Data verification of healthcare data is a key part of every quality review and has been a challenging task for humans and machines.

Yael Gozin details how, by utilizing AI capabilities such as NLP and machine learning, Pfizer in partnership with BeaconCure developed a new general method for structured data verification, which mimics the way a human reviewer verifies the table’s accuracy. Furthermore, this technology, allows remarkable accuracy as demonstrated in the latest wet-test results: F1 = 0.98, precision = 0.99, and recall = 0.97.
