Revolutionizing Document Search and Summarization in Life Sciences with Generative AI

04 Aug 2023
In the fast-paced world of life sciences, medical professionals often find themselves grappling with vast amounts of data stored in large documents. These documents are not easily searchable and consumable, posing significant challenges in extracting valuable insights efficiently from this database. Life Sciences companies continue to deploy traditional models of search, which more often than not, are counterproductive. At the same time, inability to reuse content leads to inefficiencies that are completely avoidable.
4 challenge areas that the industry needs to surmount
Document Search and Summarization Challenges
How can Generative AI help?
Making Large Documents Searchable and Consumable
Difficulty in searching through extensive documents. In an ideal scenario, a user should be able to pull a document from the document management systems (DMS) based on defined criteria and then run a search for specific content within the document. However, it has been a challenge historically.
Generative AI can be leveraged to create tagged and searchable document databases, highlight keywords, enable document summaries, and section-level summaries.
Extracting Insights and Personalized Summaries
Extracting actionable insights from complex medical documents can be a daunting task
Solutions leveraging Generative AI platforms can create comprehensive summaries that go beyond simple keyword extraction. The structure and ruleset defined at the backend allow for the creation of role-based summaries, thematic summaries, and even summaries tailored to specific sections of interest. This not only saves time but also enables professionals to quickly identify the value and relevance of a document, answering the crucial question of "What's in it for me?"
Consolidating Content Search Across Documents
Manually searching inside documents and even consolidating content search across multiple documents is a time-consuming and error-prone process
The querying process can be streamlined for single or multiple documents and integrated with a conversational chatbot for a seamless user experience.
Enabling Downstream Insights and Future Use
Difficulty in seamless cascading of valuable insights from search results to downstream systems for maximum benefit
By integrating with a business process management (BPM) engine, users can leverage the extracted insights to drive informed decision-making. Furthermore, the solution should allow users to save queries for future use, empowering them with a knowledge repository that can be accessed whenever needed
