Mac Bonafede, Stella Chang, and Dr. Rajesh Dash provide an overview on defeating common clinical trial barriers by combining EHR data with advanced analytics technologies.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, clinical trials were already increasing in cost and complexity, creating uncertainty for clinical trial planning and execution. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated that problem by creating numerous healthcare-related obstacles, including obstacles in the realm of clinical research.

However, electronic health record (EHR) data can be combined with advanced analytics technologies to help overcome these obstacles. In this webinar, you will hear a robust example of how teams of expert data scientists from Veradigm® and HealthPals successfully used the Veradigm Health Insights Ambulatory EHR™ dataset to replicate the ROCKET-AF clinical trial.

Key Topics Include:

  • How the Veradigm EHR dataset was analyzed by the HealthPals CLINTTM analytics platform to successfully replicate the results of ROCKET-AF, a large, landmark, international clinical trial
  • How the Veradigm EHR dataset could be used to construct an external control arm (ECA) for an ongoing clinical trial
