"The collaboration between ICON and Practice Fusion explores innovative uses of data collected directly through the Practice Fusion platform to facilitate health research. Focus areas for potential collaboration include: the ability to rapidly develop ‘Real-world' Registries; the use of the EHR platform to streamline data collection for late phase studies and post-market research programs; as well as the real time identification of ‘active' patients for engagement in health research programs", commented
Working with "Real" patient data, connected healthcare providers, and data collected directly through an EHR system represents an order of magnitude improvement over second-hand sources that the FDA has cited as filled with discrepancies and which is not timely.
The relationship with Practice Fusion is another example of ICON's leadership in applying targeted technology to help customers reduce the time and cost of their development programs through more accurate patient identification, research though real-world patient records and faster patient recruitment.
"The use of EHR systems offers a significant differentiator of second-hand data resources for more efficient retrospective and hybrid studies in addition to selection of sites and patient recruitment" continued
"Working with ICON will enable Practice Fusion network physicians to potentially improve the quality and value of patient care by accelerating research and actively contributing to Real-World Evidence which may be critical for developing novel treatments and communicating treatment value", said
