Yale, Forte integrate interfaces
Forte Research Systems, a developer of specialized clinical trial management systems (CTMS) and eClinical research solutions, and the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation have announced that Yale has deployed new interfaces between the OnCore eClinical research solution and the university's electronic medical record (EMR), Epic. The integration facilitates communication of clinical trial data from OnCore to the EMR to help streamline processes for research staff, and strengthen patient safety and billing compliance.
"We see it as an opportunity to eliminate duplicate data entry, strengthen research billing compliance and streamline communication throughout our institution," said Tesheia Johnson, chief operating officer of the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation.
The industry standards-based interfaces include one for protocol and patient information and a protocol billing grid interface.
