Clinical Pipe is a middleware application for transferring patient data from the research institution’s EHR system (Electronic Health Record) into the sponsor's research database (Electronic Data Capture - EDC).
We support leading EHR systems (Epic, Cerner, Allscripts and Athena/Virence Centricity), as well as leading EDC systems (Medidata Rave, Oracle InForm and Protocol First’s P1 EDC).
Clinical Pipe utilizes information from Observations, Conditions, Procedures, Medications, and Notes/Reports/Documents to fill data entry forms that are present in the EDC systems. This works for any new and ongoing industry-sponsored research. Research coordinators remain in control of the data and can submit, with a mouse click, hundreds of data elements.
Research coordinators want consistent, easy-to-use interfaces and they need to maintain complete control over the data too. Clinical Pipe’s unique time point matching coupled with its ability to export entire data panels with mouse clicks, make the application a breeze to use.
Our proprietary mapping algorithm presents trial data in an intuitive and simple interface that allows the institution's research coordinator to maintain full control over the data, over the course of the trial. Workflows are identical across sponsors, therapeutic areas and EDC systems. Whether you use Rave or InForm with Pharma A or B...your workflow remains unchanged.
The sponsor's data review tools remain in place, as well as their ability to run edit checks and auto queries within the EDC. In reality, there are far fewer such queries when using Clinical Pipe.
Setting up Clinical Pipe at your institution couldn’t be easier. EHR vendors have all created streamlined processes to connect Clinical Pipe with your EHR system. For instance, if you are using Epic, start by hitting the “Nominate" button in App Orchard. An email will be sent to you and your Epic liaison, who can then click "Contact Author" to get support from Epic and Clinical Pipe. We take it from there.
Sponsors pay for the cost of data transfer via Clinical Pipe. The only investment by the institution is a security review and gathering the right team members. Actual IT implementation only takes a few hours, with Epic, it typically takes 2-5. After the connection is established, it will work for any industry clinical trial.
