Validation Study of the Apollo aEDC System for Cardiology Real World Evidence to be Presented at ISPOR 2022

Toronto, Canada

Ensho Health today announced three abstracts validating the Apollo automated electronic data capture ("aEDC") system for Cardiology real world evidence have been accepted for poster discussion and presentations at ISPOR 2022 to be held May 16-18.

"These studies demonstrate the unique capabilities of the Apollo aEDC system in secondary use of data studies,” said Dr. Taha Bandukwala, Ensho Health Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer. "We believe the ability of Apollo to extract nuanced clinical insights from unstructured documents through natural language processing and other techniques can transform real world clinical research."

Highlights include:

  • Natural language processing with Apollo was a feasible method for conducting cardiology real world research, produced similar results to contemporary literature, allows for detailed sample description and analyses, and yet is a more efficient method for large samples, and potentially more granular than administrative databases in Canada
  • A significant number of patients with familial hypercholesterolemia are not optimally treated despite the use of current available therapies
  • Recent changes in Canadian guideline LDL-C thresholds will lead to a larger treatment gap (i.e., more patients whose LDL-C level signals a call for lipid lowering therapy intensification) and worse health outcomes unless prompt clinical action is taken to optimize therapy in this population

The research summarized in the abstracts was supported by Novartis Canada.
