Intelligent Automation is the key driver that not only accelerates the creation and generation of AMNOG Dossiers for one of our globally active pharmaceutical customers. By automating tedious and yet highly standardizable tasks, the overall AMNOG process has taken a significant leap. All of this with classic automation in the form of Robotic Process Automation to transfer data and text to subsequently populate and fill the desired AMNOG Dossiers. lexoro´s degree of automation: about 70% for document creation and generation.

The challenge

In many regulated industries, the approval process for products, drugs or substances is very tedious. Especially in the Pharmaceutical area, AMNOG provides physicians with information about the benefits and possible harm of new drugs before prescribing them to patients, creating a level of transparency. In order to precisely document the benefit assessment and to ultimately be able to properly evaluate the assessment, the AMNOG Dossier with 5 different modules is compiled by the Pharmaceutical manufacturer – all determined by the G-BA.

The problem

  • Very high time expenditure with enormous scope of work
  • Manual collection, modification and distribution of information, text elements, tables from various systems
  • Time-consuming copy & paste tasks, formatting & editing, as well as compilation of different modules
  • Populating relevant information into templates for the AMNOG Dossier with its several modules

Automated population & creation of the Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance

The Medical Device Regulation (MDR) has brought several obligations and requirements regarding reporting, safety, and other risk-preventive actions. T...

The Medical Device Regulation (MDR) has brought several obligations and requirements regarding reporting, safety, and other risk-preventive actions. These processes and the effort that comes with them, has left a lot of companies struggling with the regulatory workflows. The Intelligent Automation solution by lexoro helps our clients in the medical device sector to accelerate the preparation, the population and the generation of chapters and sections within the Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance (SSCP). This way, the workload for these summary reports – obligatory for Class III and implantable devices – can be reduced significantly. lexoro´s big performance-plus: a degree of automation of about 70%.

The challenge

Class III and implantable devices usually mean a higher level of risk for the patient. Therefore, the Medical Device Regulation has seen the necessity for a routine summary to display clinical data regarding the safety and performance of such devices. While the Post Market Surveillance process is going on regularly, the SSCP has to be updated once a year as well. The challenge for manufacturers lies in the additional effort that has to be put into this short summary – collecting clinical data, updating outdated information, choosing an appropriate language that is readable for the general public and making it accessible after several checks by Notified Bodies. And all this in accordance with the current requirements of the MDR.

 

The problem

  • High time expenditure for a routine-based workload
  • Manual collection, copying, distribution, and updating of information, text elements, tables from various systems
  • Time-consuming copy & paste tasks for several chapters and sections
  • Populating relevant information into templates for the SSCP

Customer

Being a globally active company within the medical device sector and a portfolio also includes the high-risk implants and Class III devices, our customer wanted to accelerate the tedious work for the preparation of SSCPs. This was only one step in the company´s journey to regulatory excellence under new MDR requirements where lexoro is a key partner.

The solution: Intelligent Automation for Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance (Class III & Implants)

For the intelligent solution to accelerate the SSCP workflow, lexoro has leveraged the power of RPA and NLP and consequently restructured the preparation and population. This way, lexoro can enable and inspire a company´s top regulatory experts by either completely removing or semi-automating routine tasks. Typically, these tasks would include the likes of copy & paste, data collection, and content population. With lexoro´s innovative Intelligent Automation technology, regulatory departments can save up to 70%. And by introducing the fully flexible and customized solution into your system environment, the transition runs almost seamlessly.

The process

The initial and only manual step includes the selection of a template for the summary or the report to be created. In the following, software robots automatically search through internal systems to collect relevant information and data. These can be textual, tabular, numeric or other data that fits the relevancy criteria for the respective template or chapter. After the collection of the data basis is completed successfully, it is possible to prepare, format and supplement the data using Natural Language Processing. In the final step, the lexoro solution processes the fully automatic population of the defined templates & tables with relevant data into the designated summary chapters and exports the finalized document in a format of choice.

1Choose template or chapter

Manual selection of the required template or chapter to be processed or generated.

2Creation of data basis (upload or collect)

Automated collecting and copying of relevant data and text from source data (e.g., the PMCF, IFU, CEP, CER, or technical documentation) to create a data basis.

3Formatting and Aggregation

Extraction, preparation, editing, and formatting of data, text, and tables for the SSCP.

4Transfer, Filling and Population

Filling and population of prior defined chapters and tables with relevant data and text (e.g., Summaries, Performance & Safety, etc.).

5Preview and Export

For an innovative global healthcare company lexoro automated the creation of Periodic Safety Update Reports (PSUR) and Post-Market Surveillance Reports (PMSR). The Intelligent Automation included automated data preparation as well as the automated collection and preparation of information which is then automatically entered into the template structure of the PSUR and PMSR, thus replacing time-consuming copy & paste tasks.

The challenge

In medical technology and pharmaceuticals, PSURs and PMSRs must be prepared and submitted regularly for various classes of medical devices and drugs/medications. Therefore information must be collected over a longer period of time in the Post Market Surveillance, which then has to be evaluated in order to finally enter it into the reports on time and according to certain specifications. There are a lot of summaries, tables, evaluations, conclusions and analyses that have to be collected from different sources.

The problem

  • Very high time expenditure
  • Manual collection and evaluation of all relevant information from PMS
  • Time-consuming copy & past tasks
  • Populating relevant information into templates for PSUR & PMSR

Customer

Our customer is one of the world’s leading healthcare companies with over 100.000 employees worldwide. The company researches the causes of diseases, searches for starting points for drug treatment, develops medicines, produces active ingredients and supplies finished medicines and active ingredients throughout the world.

The solution: Intelligent Automation of PSUR & PMSR generation

For the automated generation of PSUR and PMS Reports, lexoro has implemented RPA, NLP and NLG technology. Now the collection, the preparation of information and the entering of information into the template structure of the PSUR / PMSR is automated.

Thanks to 100% error-free RPA technology combined with Artificial Intelligence the repetitive process of report generation is standardized and 100% error-free. The customer saves 70% of time concerning data preparation while top experts can focus on analyses and summaries (value-added activities) and thus increase the results and outcomes of the overall process.

The process

After the selection of the desired report template for filling the software robot automatically copies and collects relevant data from internal company systems, which were collected and filed in advance by Post Market Surveillance Preparation. Thanks to RPA and NLP technology the supplementation & analysis of data from various areas for e.g. reports, surveys, reviews, databases & systems is fully automated and 100% error-free.  Using NLP and NLG the defined templates & tables are filled automatically with relevant data in the designated chapters e.g. Summaries, Study Data, Literature or Signal and Risk, etc. Finally the report templates are generated and exported for further processing and review.
