BEKhealth Launches Scoring System to Help Pharmaceutical Companies Ensure Clinical Trial Protocols are Compatible with the Latest AI-Enabled Site Solutions

BEKhealth, a Clinical Research Platform company, today announced the launch of BEKScore, a new commercially available service to help pharmaceutical companies design clinical trials compatible with the latest AI solutions used by research organizations at trial sites.

A BEKScore is generated by evaluating the design and criteria of a trial protocol and determining how likely an AI solution will be to find trial candidates within an EMR database. The higher the BEKScore, the greater the chance an AI-powered search will produce enough eligible participants to meet the requirements of the protocol.

“With the growing adoption by clinical researchers of AI technologies, pharmaceutical companies must ensure their trial protocols are compatible with and can be understood by these solutions,” said Jason Baumgartner, CEO of BEKhealth.

BEKhealth generates a score using assumptions regarding a particular research organization’s area of focus or practice. Additionally, BEKScore can also be used by clinical research organizations to analyze incoming clinical trial protocols and determine which are most suitable for their patient populations.

“BEKScore leverages our deep expertise in EMR systems to provide pharmaceutical companies increased confidence in identifying eligible candidates who will meet the specific protocol requirements,” continued Josh Ransom, BEKhealth VP of Customer Experience.

About BEKhealth

BEKhealth Corporation operates an AI-powered patient-matching software platform serving the clinical trial industry. The platform allows life sciences and healthcare organizations to speed up site selection and patient recruitment by extracting data from electronic medical records (EMRs), which includes structured and unstructured clinical data that captures three times more trial criteria. BEKhealth’s AI-driven data platform uses a proprietary ontology that has been built from 400+ medical libraries aligned against 70,000 protocols to standardize patient data to its interoperable clinical data model. Analyzing records for more than 43 million patients at over 300 partner clinical sites, BEKhealth leverages its extensive knowledge of patient populations to enhance enrollment optimization and detect more protocol-eligible candidates than traditional methods. Given that only 3% of practicing physicians engage in medical research, and less than 9% of patients receive an invitation to participate in clinical trials, BEKhealth’s mission is to enhance human health and well-being by significantly increasing patient access to clinical research.
