EP 03 | Bridging the divide: Opportunities to integrate clinical research into everyday care

In this episode, Flatiron leaders and key clinical research partners share our vision for the future of oncology clinical research and showcase case studies of early successes, particularly around the use of technology to streamline study data capture (EHR to EDC).

Case Study

Beat AML®

In 2016, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) established the Beat AML® trial with the aim of advancing the treatment paradigm for AML through collaboration across over 20+ sites, sponsors, and technology vendors.

In order to effectively run the coordination needed for this large master protocol, LLS sought a technology partner with capabilities to (1) enable remote access to source data, (2) facilitate data entry with EHR-to-EDC technology, and (3) provide an EDC system that can be seamlessly updated. LLS partnered with Flatiron (formerly Protocol First) to provide multiple eClinical solutions to meet the high demands and standards for Beat AML® with great success.

Case Study

Prospective Clinico-Genomic Study

Flatiron Health, Foundation Medicine and Genentech partnered to develop a novel, low-interventional prospective study for patients living with advanced lung cancer 一 PCG. This study piloted the use of a technology-enabled prospective data collection platform and aimed to alleviate clinical trial operational challenges.

Read the full case study to learn more about Flatiron’s approach to Prospective Real-World Studies.

Study Results:

950 enrollments in 18 months

0 EDC fields needed; study data captured in the EHR

100% of surveyed sites said that they would run a similar study again

100% of participating sites liked answering queries directly in OncoTrials®

There’s a lot of human error components that can come with that when you’re moving a lot of data points, and you’re having to answer a lot of queries which also take time. For us, this is the first technology solution we’ve been presented with that really takes everything off the site.
