Automating Study Setup with a Digital Data Flow

Webcasts

Webinar Date/Time: Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 9 am CT, 10 am ET, 3 pm GMT, 4 pm CE

Traditional study setup of eClinical systems requires significant duplication of effort and copying of protocol elements to each system. To accelerate time to market, reduce costs – and ultimately – improve clinical and patient outcomes, leading pharmaceutical organizations are working to change the way that data, analytics, and ecosystem partnerships are used across the entire drug discovery value chain.

Event Overview:

Traditional study setup of eClinical systems requires significant duplication of effort and copying of protocol elements to each system, such as electronic data capture (EDC), randomization (IRT), and trial management (CTMS) solutions. Not only does this result in increased time and effort to study start and setup, but it can also lead in inconsistencies downstream that must be addressed in the data to properly aggregate it for reporting and submission.
To accelerate time to market, reduce costs – and ultimately – improve clinical and patient outcomes, leading pharmaceutical organizations are working to change the way that data, analytics and ecosystem partnerships are used across the entire drug discovery value chain. Data-sharing environments, anchored in up-to-date standards and definitions, play a powerful role in increasing objectivity and decreasing effort.
TransCelerate Biopharma, working with Accenture, began an initiative to develop standards, a reference architecture for a Study Definitions Repository (SDR) with APIs, and supporting materials for implementing a Digital Data Flow (DDF). The goal of the DDF project is to automate study setup by developing the tools and processes to support upstream systems like study builder and protocol authoring tools in defining structured study definitions that can be pushed to the SDR for downstream system consumption and automation.
As vendors participating in the TransCelerate DDF project, Oracle and Nurocor were able to utilize the SDR APIs to automate study setup in Oracle’s Clinical One platform.


Key Learning Objectives:

  • The challenges with setting up studies across the eClinical technology landscape
  • Toolkits and resources available from TransCelerate to address these challenges and support an optimal digital data flow
  • Implementation of a digital data flow from the Nurocor Clinical Platform (NCP) study builder to Oracle Clinical One
  • How Oracle and Nurocor were able to automate study setup utilizing the DDF resources, and
  • Benefits of automating study setup using the DDF

Who Should Attend:

  • Clinical researchers, data scientists, and clinical decision teams responsible for:
    • Clinical development planning, study design, and study planning
    • Clinical data management, collecting and evaluating trial metrics
    • Standards conformant study deliverables
  • Project management of studies, process optimization and operational excellence
