CONFERENCE SERIES: Clinical Trials & Translational Medicine

Recorded at: Summit for Clinical Ops Executives (SCOPE)

Digital Course: EMR/EHRs:  Utilization of Electronic Health Record Data For Clinical Research


Order DVD2012 DVD Cover About this Product: 

In this digital course, we will discuss the potential benefits and risks involved in mining information outside of controlled trials to create insights on diseases, drugs, and patient populations and to optimize the conduct of clinical trials. Key topics to be addressed:

  • Using EHRs to support clinical protocol design, feasibility determination and optimization
  • Mining large EHR databases to support site identification through regional geographic heat maps
  • Leveraging EHRs for data-driven patient identification and recruitment: learning from the experience from a clinical research site
  • Understanding the limitations of current systems, including data quality issues
  • Recognizing the benefits and complexities of EHR–EDC integration
  • Navigating rules, regulations and policy: a US, EU and healthcare institution's perspective

Biography: Since Dec 2009, Andreas Schmidt is heading the Electronic Health Systems business for F. Hoffmann La Roche Pharma Product Development. He has held roles in clinical development including cardiac safety, business development and information management at Novartis Pharma AG and Ciba-Geigy AG in the past 20 years. With more than 10 years of working in the Public Health Care, Andreas has extensive experience in medical diagnostics and treatment, scientific research and patient care. His training background includes: a Master of Science, University of Technology Berlin, Germany; a Diploma in Pharmaceutical Medicine from the European Center of Pharmaceutical Medicine - EUCOR Universities Strasburg, France; a Certificate in Management degree from Henley Management College, England; a Master's Certificate in Project Management from George Washington University, USA; and a Dipl. Pharm. Med SwAPP, a Diploma in Pharmaceutical Medicine of the Swiss Association of Pharmaceutical Professionals, Switzerland.

Topic 2: Leveraging EHRs for Data-Driven Patient Identification and Recruitment: Learning from the Experience from a Clinical Research Site Perspective
Richard ScheuermannRichard Scheuermann, Ph.D., Professor, Director, Division of Biomedical Informatics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

Biography: Dr. Richard Scheuermann received his B.S. degree in Life Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his Ph.D. degree in Molecular Biology from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1992, he joined the faculty at UT Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas, TX) where he is the Chief of the Division of Biomedical Informatics and holder of the John H. Childers Professorship in Pathology. His recent research focus has been in the development of new algorithms for the analysis of gene expression microarray, genetic, flow cytometry and biological network data, and in the development of approaches and standards for biomedical knowledge representation. Dr. Scheuermann leads three large database development projects funded by the U.S. NIH – the Influenza Research Database (www.fludb.org), the Virus Pathogen Bioinformatics Resource Center (www.viprbrc.org) and the Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (www.immport.org), and also serves as the Biomedical Informatics Key Function Lead for UT Southwestern’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA).

Topic 3: EHR Driven Pharmacoepidemiology, Protocol Optimization and Outcomes Research (Pharma Perspective)
Aarom KamauuAaron Kamauu, M.D., M.S., MPH, President, Anolinx LLC; former Head, Healthcare Data Strategy, Roche and Genentech

Biography: Dr. Aaron Kamauu is the President at Anolinx LLC where he leads innovation in leveraging healthcare data to support a variety of clinical research, informatics, clinical trials and drug development activities, including pharmacoepidemiology, outcomes research, protocol design, site identification and data-driven patient recruitment. Prior to Anolinx, Dr. Kamauu was the Director of Healthcare Data Analytics at Clinical Methods, and prior to that he was Head of Healthcare Data Strategy at Roche and Genentech. Prior to that he worked for a software development company managing the underlying coding schemes for an outpatient electronic health record (EHR) system.  Dr Kamauu brings a unique combination of clinical, biomedical informatics, drug development and public health training and experience, resulting in the application of innovative biomedical informatics methodology to support projects based on individual patient care as well as population-based observations.

Topic 4: How to Overcome the Problem of Data Interoperability and Data Quality
Werner CeustersWerner Ceusters, M.D., Director, Ontology Research Group, NYS Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics & Life Sciences

Biography: Dr. Werner Ceusters is a neuro-psychiatrist with additional degrees in Knowledge Engineering, Informatics and business aspects of the bio-science industry. As Director of the Ontology Research Group of the New York State Center of Excellence in Bio-informatics and Life Sciences, he focuses his research on the development of realism-based ontologies and the use thereof in life science applications, specifically for the integration of data from heterogeneous resources. He is the major contributor to the ontology requirements specifications for the knowledge management infrastructure being build under Europe’s ‘Innovative Medicine’ program.

Topic 5: US & EU Initiatives 
Richard Scheuermann, Ph.D., Professor, Director, Division of Biomedical Informatics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center
