Defining eSource for Clinical Trials: Three Practical Categories

2017-06-11T17:36:51+00:00

When discussing eSource there is as much detail to explore as any other segment of clinical trial operations. But from small biotechs to top 20 pharma, the starting point for discussions is more simple: how do we define eSource? After numerous deployments of eBinders and eBinders eSource, we've come to understand that eSource is three things. First, let's set [...]

Secure Your Records. Protect Your Research.

2017-06-11T17:36:53+00:00

With banking, stock trading, and now health records becoming electronic, what’s stopping someone from obtaining every detail about our lives? In clinical research, keeping Protected Health Information (PHI) – patients’ personal and identifiable information — secure is the key concern. Losing this means potentially harming the patient, running afoul of laws like HIPAA, and [...]

Paper Shadow Charts: The Hidden Barrier to eSource

2018-02-06T21:53:24+00:00

The benefits of eSource - where trial data remains electronic from start through data lock - are well understood. They include the elimination of transcription errors (shown by Nham et al to be 10x more accurate), reduction in duplicitous effort and monitoring requirements, and easier query resolution. With clinical EHR adoption nearing 90%, digital [...]

Integration Gets Pushed Off Again

2017-06-11T17:36:53+00:00

HL7, CDA, FHIR, CDISC, CDASH. The word jumble surfaces when researchers attempt to integrate clinical data with trial data. It also illustrates a trend where technologists, not clinicians, have control of patents' information. We propose there’s another way — an approach that puts the clinician in control of data movement. First let’s look at the [...]

Pay for Performance Comes to Prescriptions… and Clinical Trials

2017-06-11T17:36:53+00:00

Payers are changing how providers get paid — from fee for service to paying for performance. This transition will be at the center of healthcare change for the foreseeable future– not only for practitioners, but surprisingly, also for therapy development.   First, a little background. Pay-for-performance incentivizes providers with bonus payments as well as with [...]

How will healthcare adopt “Event Driven” medicine?

2017-06-11T17:36:53+00:00

Pairing remote monitoring devices with event driven medicine algorithms has the potential to address home health care’s current reliability and usability limitations. Studies have shown that home devices in this setting are fit to address the needs of chronic illnesses. Why are chronic diseases fit for this purpose? The non-intensive nature of chronic disease. Chronic diseases [...]
