Implementation of a Clinical Trial Matching System
1:30pm - 2:30pmThursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
This session will describe how an academic institution leveraged an IT solution to transform the clinical trial matching process for patients with cancer. Since the development and implementation of the clinical trial matching cognitive computing solution into the breast cancer oncology practice, clinical trial enrollment to systemic therapy clinical trials has increased by 80%. The time to screen an individual patient for clinical trial matches with the system has also decreased over time. Initial clinical adoption of the technology by healthcare providers was low, but after re-engineering of the operational workflow utilization of the cognitive system was successful. Other challenges and lessons learned will be described.
