Year 2: BIRD Foundation Grant to Integrate EDC with the EMR


Target Health and Life-On-Key are pleased to announce that Year 2 of a 2 year project, sponsored by a grant from the BIRD Foundation, has begun. The goal of the project is to integrate any electronic medical record (EMR) with any electronic data capture (EDC) system used in clinical trials. To date we have been able to send clinical trial data from Target e*CRF to the Life-On-Key EMR. The next phase will include extracting data from the EMR, combining the EMR data with other clinical trial data entered at the time of the clinic visit, creating the eCRF and then creating Target e*CTR®, the eClinical Trial Record, a 21CFR Part 11 compliant source record.


This grant compliments Target Health’s mission to transform the pharmaceutical industry from paper-based clinical trials to technology-based clinical trials with increased productivity and quality, and decreased time to database lock time and decision-making.
