Clinical Informatics News Announces Winners of its First Best Practices Awards Program

Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 06, 2014

Cambridge Healthtech Media Group’s Clinical Informatics News announced the winners of its first Best Practices Awards competition this morning in a plenary session at the 2014 Summit for Clinical Ops Executives (SCOPE) in Miami.

Grand prize winners were named in three clinical ops categories highlighting best practices in clinical intelligence, study startup and design, and managing patient data from Clinical Ink, Forte Research Systems, Mytrus, and Pfizer.

“We extend our sincere congratulations to the winners of this year’s Clinical Informatics News Best Practices Awards competition,” said Allison Proffitt, editor of Clinical Informatics News. “Our first year’s entries covered a range of areas and truly represented some of the best practices in the industry. Our judges had some tough decisions to make, and we believe that the contest has highlighted some truly innovative, game-changing tools and solutions. Our winners should be very proud that they have captured the imagination and respect of such a distinguished jury.”

The Clinical Informatics News Best Practices Awards program was established in 2013 by the editors of Clinical Informatics News to recognize clinical organizations for outstanding strategic innovation—partnerships, deployments, or collaborations that manifestly improve the clinical trial process.

The awards presentations were co-hosted by Naila Ganatra, General Manager at Barnett International, and Allison Proffitt, editorial director of Clinical Informatics News.

A panel of five invited expert judges joined the editors in reviewing detailed submissions from organizations ranging from large pharmaceutical companies to medical centers to clinical tools providers around the world, choosing best practices in three categories.

The grand prize trophies were presented to the following organizations within these categories:

Patient Data Management: Mytrus and Pfizer

Electronic Informed Consent and Direct Patient Data Collection Technology for At-Home Clinical Research.

Mytrus and Pfizer designed and executed the first complete Direct to Patient (D2P) clinical trial technology system for use in Pfizer’s REMOTE study for patients with OAB. The technology for this project (code‐named “Apollo”) included several innovative patient communication and learning tools that set a new standard for planning and executing clinical research in the patient’s home environment.

Study Startup and Design: Clinical Ink

Use of E-Source / Remote Monitoring by Isolated African Research Sites Dramatically

Improves Study Execution/Collaboration in Tuberculosis Vaccine Study

Panacea (an academic consortium among universities in Germany and the Netherlands acting as the Sponsor) received limited grant funding to test a promising tuberculosis vaccine and selected 7 sites in Tanzania and South Africa based on the high number of TB cases in the local area. However, these sites have limited connectivity and experience conducting clinical trials according to the strict regulatory requirements of the FDA/EMA. In particular, Panacea was concerned about the ability to ensure that source documents are maintained, clinical data is monitored/reviewed regularly to ensure appropriate oversight, and to confirm that sites are complying with the protocol and GCPs. Panacea and Triclinium (a South African CRO) selected the Clinical Ink SureSource platform to enable the African sites to capture source data electronically and permit the European medical institutions to review/monitor source documents/data remotely. Notably, the SureSource platform utilizes tablet PCs with intuitive electronic forms that mimic paper in terms of usability, but which incorporate sophisticated real-time data validations and can be used completely offline; some sites even take the tablet PCs with them to subject homes or off-site locations to collect data. Both the documents and data are uploaded and available for monitors to review remotely via the SureSource portal by the CRO in South Africa as well as the academic consortium in Europe.

Clinical Data Intelligence: Forte Research Systems

Research Resonance Network

Recognizing the challenges of getting a handle on historic site performance, a group of research institutions, referred to as “Onsemble” and consisting of the nation’s top research centers such as the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation and the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center, collaborated to create a standards-based approach for tracking site metrics. Over 7 years, the institutions discussed best practices and established a common data set and a corresponding set of tools for gathering the data. This suite of tools, hosted by Forte Research Systems, is called the Research Resonance Network, which brings together a collaborative community of research sites who are committed to the pursuit of excellence in clinical research operations.

Criteria and Judging

Awards finalists and winners were selected for their innovative use of clinical technologies including informatics, information technology, and knowledge management on a project or organizational level to achieve significantly improved results in clinical operations, clinical trial planning, or patient service. The judges rated entries on several criteria, including innovation, importance, return on investment and likely industry impact, seeking stories that spotlighted the practical and positive deployment of novel technologies in academic, medical or commercial organizations.

    Naila Ganatra, Barnett International
    Beth Harper, Clinical Performance Partners, Inc.
