Case Study

SmartAnalyst Inc. used IBM Explorys clinical data to improve how a company markets its medications

Share this post:

SmartAnalyst and the IBM® Watson Health™ team used the IBM Explorys® data set to study the journey of more than 6,500 real-life psoriasis patients. The data revealed a tendency for patients to jump from topical remedies to injectables rather quickly, skipping oral medications. As a result, SmartAnalyst’s customer, a pharmaceutical company, is changing the way it communicates with patients and doctors.

Transformation
SmartAnalyst and the IBM Watson Health team identified over 6,500 real-world psoriasis patients and uncovered timely treatment trends in the way they progress through their treatment pathways.
