Implementation of a Clinical Trial Matching System

1:30pm - 2:30pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Delfino 4004

Description

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.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe how a cognitive system was developed and trained to address contemporary barriers to enrolling patients to clinical trials
  • Evaluate qualitative and quantitative metrics following implementation of the clinical trial matching solution
  • Summarize the barriers to clinical implementation of a cognitive system and to outline an approach to improve workflow barriers
  • Define the need for a culture shift to emerging technologies in healthcare
