Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BERKELEY, Calif. - Jun 25, 2018 - Clinical Pipe (CP), an innovative clinical research software provider, is introducing the pharma industry’s first EHR-to-EDC integration app at DIA 2018.
CP allows patient data to be exported directly from a clinical site’s EHR systems and transferred into clinical research electronic data capture (EDC) systems. Clinical Pipe leverages SMART on FHIR with OAUTH2 for EHR APIs and ODM and CDASH for the EDC integration. CP will integrate with the industry’s leading EHRs like Epic. CP can be found on Epic App Orchard and Allscripts, and CP integrates with leading EDCs like Medidata’s Rave, Cerner and Protocol First. CP can integrate new and already-existing protocols and is able to be reusable for multiple protocols giving CP massive scalability, unseen in the industry to date.
This is a watershed moment for the clinical research industry as CP allows for clinicians to avoid the process of manually transcribing data from the EHR on one computer to the EDC on a different computer. CP automates this manual and menial task and fixes the dreaded “swivel-chair problem” in the clinical research arena.
Clinical Pipe is the exciting next step in the clinical research industry, connecting the two very different worlds of EHR and EDC and allowing data to flow between them without the intervention of transcription in the process. This technology has been 20 years in the making and we are so proud to be able to bring it to market with Clinical Pipe.
By automating this manual task, CP saves valuable time and money in the data collection process. The CP automation provides much cleaner and better data because it cuts down on the errors and human mistakes in the place they happen the most – data entry.
Automated EHR-to-EDC integration leads to 100 percent accurate data, reduced time and cost, better site relations and the ability to make tight timelines more often. The benefits of Clinical Pipe are clear for everyone involved in clinical research: the sites, sponsors and, at the end of the day, the patients.
Clinical Pipe’s innovative technology allows for the integration of two separate systems. CP leverages SMART on FHIR along with OAUTH2 for the EHR APIs and ODM and CDASH for the EDC integration. These technologies and standards, along with the advanced translation algorithm and time point matching feature, bring a whole solution that is an industry first. All of this runs on a secure infrastructure that is compliant and secure at every level and meets 21 CFR Part 11 and HIPAA standards.
Hugh Levaux, CEO and founder of Clinical Pipe, states, “Clinical Pipe is the exciting next step in the clinical research industry, connecting the two very different worlds of EHR and EDC and allowing data to flow between them without the intervention of transcription in the process. This technology has been 20 years in the making and we are so proud to be able to bring it to market with Clinical Pipe.” Hugh Levaux is an industry veteran with over 20 years of experience at the intersection of technology and clinical research. “We are very excited to bring Clinical Pipe to DIA because it’s the leading gathering for our industry and we love the ability to share our innovation and opportunity in the space that DIA provides.”
Clinical Pipe is currently being installed at a number of industry-leading sites, leveraging industry-leading CROs and leading sponsors. Clinical Pipe will update usage and news on progress when the time comes.
