Running a clinical trial relies on the simultaneous acquisition, storage, and recalling of copious amounts of data. In the case of intensively populated healthcare emergencies, new information is fed to the database every minute. Reviewing these data on a large scale requires synchronicity between multiple operating platforms and communication between their users.
In a multi-centered clinical setting, data extraction alone can extend the timeline for weeks. Additionally, international database reconciliation requires standardization of measurements and operational methodologies.
We at niAnalytics believe that a single, integrated technology outperforms multiple different ones, regardless of their complexity. We refer to it as the next step in global healthcare evolution.
A decade ago, before the introduction of point-of-care data entry, keeping patient records increased physician’s time by 328.6% per working shift, and the introduction of bedside terminals saved nurses 24.5% of their overall time spent in keeping medical records. These single technological advancements were the turning points in modern healthcare.
We are determined to take the evolutionary step further by introducing a unified solution.
Our integrated EDC/CTMS system does more than just save time and money. It facilitates mutual efforts to work together on all levels by removing boundaries between organizations and countries. We achieved it by installing synoptic and semantic interoperability.
Whether it is a clinical trial or disease monitoring event, our system initiates an operating platform within hours. This way, a systematically structured and accessible database is created and ready to be fed with standardized EDC forms.
Depending on the trial preferences, this platform can be tailored to integrate data from foreign healthcare information systems and multinational medical databases. With custom user logins, an authorized person could monitor patient information, laboratory data, and even inventory, in real-time. Moreover, the information flow is streamlined from the patient’s bedside to the final analysis report.
Synoptic operative report templates are created at point-of-care as structured checklists that follow a systematic reporting method. This way, more comprehensive healthcare records are produced faster and more easily interpreted.
After the EDC form is submitted, the patient data is immediately available for distance expert-reviews. This way, synoptic interoperability aids life-threatening clinical situations with immediate transparency.
As it is being filled with proper information, the database systematically grows, quickly revealing the bigger healthcare picture. In the case of large-scale emergencies, interoperability improves patient care on a day-to-day basis.
In some healthcare systems, nurses perform the majority of the tasks that involve patient recording. We breach the educational gap with easy-to-use structured templates, and by assigning appropriate roles within the system.
When conducting a large-scale study, synoptic interoperability creates consistent, readable, and comprehensive reports, streamlines report distribution, and prompts expert evaluation. Our system keeps records at an accelerated pace while at the same time encouraging the exchange of valuable expert information.
In other words, interoperability makes this system not only the number one option for large clinical trials, but it could also be used as a clinical characterization tool for tracking severe conditions. And it works beyond national, operational, and educational boundaries.
