A hospital network for EHR-based clinical trial patient recruitment: real world experience

17. Mai 2016, 11:30


Slow patient recruitment is the number one reason for clinical trial delays. Reliably identifying suitable patients is key to timely recruitment. This seminar will discuss an innovative solution to improving the patient recruitment process in a large hospital network. The solution includes a clinical trial protocol design tool allowing the optimization of study design by querying trial criteria against electronic health records, and utilizing the networked infrastructure for implementing EHR-driven real-time patient recruitment. The system is currently connected to 7 large hospitals, with a growing number of clinical trials running in parallel. Interoperability, patient privacy and governance aspects will be discussed.
