If you are a pharmaceutical or biotech company seeking to enter the market with a new drug, you need to submit a systematic literature review (SLR) to the health authorities. SLR is critical to ensure that an HTA (Health Technology Assessment) submission contains all the relevant data about your product’s safety and efficacy, its impact on quality of life and the economic burden of disease lifted by its use. However, one of the biggest challenges many sponsors face is that most SLRs become out of date at the time of submission due to the rapidly evolving landscape of medical discovery. Conventional SLRs that are perhaps annually updated are unable to capture relevant, newly published evidence.
As updating the SLR manually can be costly and time-consuming, several companies have begun to use artificial intelligence to scan new evidence. However, automation in this area is not as advanced as it needs to be for sound insights and can affect the quality of the SLRs. Sponsors are therefore left to choose between a poor quality SLR driven by AI and a time-consuming SLR validated by human expertise but outmoded upon completion.
