How Can Life Sciences Organizations Use AI and Automation?
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are critical to ground-breaking experimentation and innovation in life sciences. Opportunities exist across precision medicine, real-world evidence, patient-centered healthcare, genomics, digitized therapeutics, digitized and virtual clinical trials, and collaborative multi-stakeholder R&D.
These opportunities require the ability to link, share, synthesize, and analyze data from inside and outside the organization.
USDM recognizes the challenges that companies face in adopting automated solutions that include machine learning, artificial intelligence, and automated testing.
Accelerate Product Development with Machine Learning
Machine learning overlaps with computational statistics, predictive analytics, and data mining. All of these are used in the life sciences industry, and some are supporting GxP functions to accelerate product development and clinical trials. Analysis using ML models can provide more insight into clinical data and enable humans to determine the safety and efficacy of the trial.
With AI and ML becoming more commonplace in enterprise IT, it is critical to go one level deeper to ensure your advanced analytics capabilities are not merely on autopilot, but take into account the critical GxP functionality and workflows that enable compliant uses in life sciences. Human critical thinking and embedded quality assurance are critical to any successful strategy.
USDM understands these GxP nuances and can help enable your continuously compliant data science framework. Our consulting relationships with best-of-breed digital transformation partners enable viable solutions in big data management, AI, machine learning, and data science analytics.
Cloud GxP Data Processing With AI
Cloud platforms create the infrastructure to free your siloed data and make it scalable and accessible. A well-designed blueprint on governance and operation of GxP compliant cloud in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) enable AI/ML use for companies that are:
- Seeking new data management solutions
- Designing faster R&D processes to accelerate drug discovery and development
- Improving the speed of clinical trials for novel treatments
- Innovating with personalized and digital medicines
- Gaining deeper insights into patient and customer needs
- Optimizing manufacturing processes
- Monitoring real-time feedback for product and patient safety through post market surveillance

Data Security with AI
Cloud-based systems offer a safe and secure solution for storing data. Medical facilities and service providers are migrating to cloud storage to give users access to data across a variety of electronic devices while reducing the costs and difficulties associated with maintaining a physical or on-premise storage system.
As the threat of cyber attacks increases, AI solutions can provide solutions to keep systems and data safe. For example, AI can be used to collect, track, and analyze online activities, then report behavior that deviates from learned patterns and legitimate access and usage.
AI Modeling, Drug Discovery, and Manufacturing
Applying AI for drug discovery is proving to be successful for increased speed of discovery, comprehensive research, and opportunities for existing compounds. AI will also be a key player in personalized medicine.
Collecting and curating this kind of information requires scalable data storage while ensuring that it can be shared securely between internal and external collaborators.
Automation in Clinical Trials
Automation in clinical trials can remove manual processes, streamline workflows, and improve the accuracy of results.
When tasks like data checking are cumbersome or lengthy but absolutely dependent on accuracy, robotic process automation (RPA) can do the work of several people, do it thoroughly (not just spot-checking the easy records), and do it in a fraction of the time. Automation is the answer to managing and safeguarding necessary processes and workflows.
