Innoplexus and Parexel Expand Capabilities of COVID-19 Information Platform
COVID-19 Clearinghouse is the go-to platform for directly accessing the latest information and research about the coronavirus and COVID-19.
ESCHBORN, Germany, Boston, M.A. and Durham, N.C., May 11, 2021 – Innoplexus, a global leader in AI-based drug discovery and development, and Parexel, a leading global clinical research organization, have expanded the features and functionality of their COVID-19 Clearinghouse platform to enhance the public’s access to the latest COVID-19 publications, datasets, clinical trial information and current news in a single, online repository.
Launched in September 2020, the platform’s new upgrades provide more advanced search capabilities that better pinpoint relevant information; a wider range of filters and feedback features to improve the user experience; mobile and tablet-friendly layouts for easy and intuitive browsing; and compatibility improvements for the four biggest browsers. The goal of the COVID-19 Clearinghouse is to help researchers, sponsors and patients overcome barriers to accessing accurate data about the pandemic.
“The pandemic has unfolded with such speed and virulence that the sheer volume of scientific and clinical information we’ve amassed about the virus and the disease requires a comprehensive, ordered and searchable repository for finding specific information quickly and efficiently,” said Michelle Hoiseth, Chief Data Officer for Parexel. “Leveraging Innoplexus’ technology, our Scientific Data organization has automated the collection and organization of COVID data points pulled from thousands of structured and unstructured datasets, publications, clinical trials and news sources that are deemed credible and reliable from a scientific perspective.”
Provided as a service to the public, physicians and the healthcare industry, the COVID-19 Clearinghouse incorporates information from 22,856 datasets, 186,236 publications, 8,358 clinical trials and 847,667 timely news articles from across 100+ different geographies. This corpus is updated in real-time to capture the latest research activity around the globe.
While the clearinghouse is accessible to anyone seeking information related to COVID-19 — from patients and physicians to regulators and sponsors — researchers will benefit from a consolidated repository of information as they seek to leverage verified data points to develop new therapies and approaches to respond to the pandemic.
Initial use of the platform by researchers and the public has provided important insights leading to upgrades and enhancements that will further enhance the user experience.
