INSERM chooses Expert System's AI to support COVID-19 research
The French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, INSERM (Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale), has decided to implement Expert System's Clinical Research Navigator (CRN) tool and make it available to 100 of its researchers for an evaluation period of 6 months.
INSERM is the second-leading biomedical research institution in the world with more than 12,000 publications each year. It brings together 10,000 researchers who are working on developing public health research and innovative treatments. With CRN from Expert System, INSERM can provide researchers with unlimited access to more than 100 million documents and reference information on 12 million clinical studies, including clinical trial data, patents, reports from experts and health organizations and web and social network content.
"At a time when we need to be particularly responsive, Expert System's Clinical Research Navigator platform provides us with centralized access to relevant and consistent data and, above all, real-time updates. It's a real time-saver and improves efficiency for all our teams," said Sammy Sahnoune, chief information officer at INSERM.
According to Expert System, one of the key principles of its CRN platform is to research and analyze content based on concepts, not just keywords. CRN enables researchers to discover insights to drive their research by semantically enriching, normalizing and revealing hidden connections across various information sources in a centralized platform. CRN identifies the context of the content; by leveraging drill-down and filtering capabilities, it enables researchers to identify key clinical trials, sponsoring research facilities, lead researchers and related work, and also map networks of collaborators and key players.
