Doctor Evidence To Be Subscription Software Platform For Meeting Abstracts For Leading Oncology Association

The search platform will enable a series of features, including advanced term searching, concept identification, author analyses and linkage of threads presented in the abstracts as well as “parent/child” relationship timelines as abstracts are further developed into other works or published manuscripts by their authors. Novel features will permit users to search within and across abstracts comparing and analyzing methods, results, and trends. This central repository of all ASCO meeting abstracts will be made available concurrent with their release around the ASCO Annual Meeting and regional meetings as they occur. All meeting abstracts for the past 20 years will be available in the Search platform, making longitudinal investigations on research trends and evolving data readily available. Abstracts will be linked to published papers addressing the same clinical trial populations, so researchers can follow cohorts over time, avoid double counting patients, and conduct author analyses and networked searches. Additionally, and unique to this collaboration, will be the tagging of all data, terms and outcomes in each ASCO meeting abstract according to ASCO’s proprietary oncology ontology.

“Our relationship with ASCO is predicated on our extensive experience digitizing clinical research data and building innovative technologies to support robust scientific investigations and sophisticated analyses,” said Robert Battista, CEO of Doctor Evidence. “DRE’s leadership in these areas make us an ideal platform for structuring and synthesizing this complex data to increase the agility of insights for the oncology research community.”
