EHR to EDC Interoperability: Problem Solved

Our API, combined with the Clinical Studio dynamic web service, is the solution to going one hundred percent paperless for trials.

Crucial Data Solutions, Inc.™ and Zircon Technologies™ announce a strategic partnership that offers an innovative solution to automate manual processes in clinical trials. Designed to accelerate the clinical trials process, Zircon’s on-demand, easy-to-use software, AccelEDC™, pulls unstructured data from any EHR (Electronic Health Record) format or lab data from an existing eSource and populates it via web service in the Clinical Studio® eClinical system. Anirban Gangopadhyay, CEO of Zircon Technologies, explains, “Our API, combined with the Clinical Studio dynamic web service, is the solution to going one hundred percent paperless for trials. AccelEDC significantly reduces the burden of data transcription on the clinical site – enabling real-time monitoring and source data verification.” AccelEDC overcomes the hurdles typically associated with EHR-EDC integration:

~ Eliminate Repeated Data Entry

Zircon’s web-based application utilizes an EHR-to-EDC API to eliminate a major pain point for clinical research coordinators (CRCs): redundant manual data entry that occurs in the EHR system and once more in the EDC system. AccelEDC shaves weeks of time off the source data verification process.

Because of the advanced nature of the Clinical Studio WebAPI, all data submitted from an EHR to Clinical Studio is subject to normal Case Report Form (CRF) data cleansing. Any anomalies found in the data immediately generate queries, which are sent to the appropriate roles. Cody Wilke, Product Manager for Crucial Data Solutions, had this to say, “We are very pleased with this partnership. It marries two technologies that will greatly streamline the clinical trial process. The connection can be used to detect adverse events in the EHR data and automatically notify the appropriate safety personnel in a trial. It can also be used in early-stage participant screening.”

~ No Heavy-Weight Integration Involved

Zircon’s lightweight API ingests anonymized clinical notes and data and automatically writes to the appropriate eCRF hosted in Clinical Studio. There is no need to interface with an EHR system;…
