About the client
Curewiki is a startup that is on a mission to democratise access to clinical trials for patients worldwide through technology. The platform serves all ends of the marketplace: researchers who are trying to find participants for their clinical trials, patients who are looking for trials in the domain of their diseases and clinical research organisations who facilitate this process. The Curewiki team came to us with bold ambitions and a full-service mandate for the digital product development operations.
Clinical trials need to be registered in government databases. As they are based on free text input by the researchers, there is no standardization in how their eligibility criteria are phrased. At the same time, specific health information from patients needs to be collected in order to match them with eligible clinical trials. The challenge lies in extracting the most relevant eligibility criteria from unstructured text across (hundreds of thousands of) clinical trials, to then only collect the most relevant information from patients.
We love it when clients involve us early on! We hosted numerous workshops to define the product’s functional and architectural needs, resulting in an ambitious product development roadmap. With a dedicated team of a product manager and four software engineers, we launched three parallel tracks: 1) a design track, focusing on the user experience, 2) a (cloud) architectural track, ensuring scalability and performance at low cost, and 3) an AI track, tasked with the MLOps of the necessary AI models to tackle the aforementioned challenge of extracting relevant eligibility criteria from unstructured texts.
