One of i~HD’s founding members, Mats Sundgren from AstraZeneca, is the lead author on her recently published paper in applied clinical trials, regarding the innovative approach of the EHR2EDC project, in which i~HD has been a partner. Nadir Ammour, also an i~HD founder from Sanofi, is also an author, along with our President Kalra, and collaborators from an innovative ICT company.

The paper charts the progress in reusing electronic health records to improve the recruitment capability and efficiency for clinical trials, and the transfer of EHR data into clinical trial electronic data capture systems to reduce data entry duplication and transcription errors. These innovations are now ready to scale, and the paper also indicates how this scaling up is likely to occur.
