CRI and Elligo team up on FDA data harmonization project

By | News

The CRI is pleased to announce a new collaborative project with Elligo Health Research in which both teams will assist the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with developing a standard common data model to guide evidence generation in biomedical research studiesand bridge clinical research and clinical care. As part of a grant awarded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Trust Fund, the FDA is currently involved in an effort to harmonize multiple common data models and open standards. By mapping data from disparate sources to one consensus-based model, the project will facilitate interoperability between data networks and make new research possible.

The CRI’s rich Clinical Research Data Warehouse and experience in the development and maintenance of data models make us a natural partner for Elligo and the FDA in developing and implementing interoperability standards. In addition to providing the FDA with valuable information about the safety of new cancer treatments, this project will help assess the value of the standard common data model for real world evidence research, as well as the tools and methods used to achieve the data harmonization. Learn more about what we’ll be working on here.

“It’s almost like the hospital is an organism.”

As the CRI-supported collaboration between the University of Chicago and Google continues, the successes of this machine learning project are capturing attention.

In Bloomberg News, CRI Director Sam Volchenboum and other experts weigh in on the meaning of the project’s accomplishments so far, potential pitfalls, and what they hope to see next. For Sam, health records are one piece of the puzzle, but they could be made even more meaningful if analyzed in combination with other types of data that influence health outcomes.

Comprehensive Care Program featured in New York Times Magazine

By | News

This week’s issue of the New York Times Magazine features the article “Trying to Put a Value on the Doctor-Patient Relationship,” which profiles Dr. David Meltzer’s unique Comprehensive Care Program (CCP) study. The CCP is an experiment in returning to a now-uncommon model for the doctor-patient relationship, in which patients receive consistent care from one provider whether they are outpatient or in the hospital.

The CRI has proudly been a part of the CCP study since it began; our Applications Development team built the custom dashboard and notification system that comprise the technological infrastructure for the study. The dashboard is used in the clinic to collect study information and integrate it with patients’ electronic medical records, and the notification system, which was the first of its kind at UCM, alerts physicians when patients enrolled in the study visit the emergency department or are admitted to the hospital.
