Systematic literature reviews are the cornerstone of evidence-based research. Medical and scientific researchers use systematic literature reviews to collect secondary data, critically appraise research studies, and synthesize findings qualitatively or quantitatively. The challenge with systematic reviews is that they are difficult to do, take a long time and are error prone.
DistillerSR is used by universities, governments and non-governmental organizations, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, as well as contract research organizations. The cloud-based platform brings together AI and intelligent workflows that automate the management of researchers’ systematic collection of secondary data to produce transparent, audit ready and compliant literature reviews faster and more cost effectively. As a result, DistillerSR enables researchers to inform time-sensitive critical health policies, clinical practice guidelines, and regulatory submissions.
