IPMPC White Paper: The Evolving Ethical and Legal Framework for the Use of AI in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industries
Over the last century, medical science has transformed human health and dramatically increased life expectancy. The life saving treatments available today were made possible by an environment that fostered medical research. The scientific process used in medical research relies on the ability to effectively collect, analyze and reanalyze patient health information. Pharmaceutical companies collect patient health information created in controlled research settings (e.g., clinical trials to investigate an experimental drug), as well as real world patient health data.
