Project Objectives
1. Develop the mechanism to facilitate and expand engagement of
physicians throughout Indiana in CER.
2. Test and evaluate the developed CER recruiting mechanism in large
and small practices.
3. Package the components for dissemination to CTSA members who
wish to implement similar participant recruitment programs for
CER trials within their networks.
INTRODUCTION
 The Indiana CTSI is committed to creating a world-class
infrastructure to promote the conduct of randomized clinical trials,
CER, pragmatic trials, and a variety of observational study designs.
 The Central Indiana Innovation Network (CI-Net) and its Research
Planning Team (RPT) was established in 2009 to create several key
components of necessary infrastructure.
History of Data Resources
• Regenstrief tasked in 1972 to “stitch” silos of medical information
together -> the Regenstrief Medical Record System at Wishard
Memorial Hospital
• In 1994, began merging information across institutions and
expanded to statewide coverage called the Indiana Network for
Patient Care (INPC)
• In 2004, the Indiana Health Information Exchange (IHIE) formed as
a data services organization
INPC Data Volume
•
•
•
•
•
•
28 million registration events
13 million unique patients
57 institutions and growing
> 712 million encounter events
> 4.4 billion clinical observations
> 580 million claims observations (Procedures,
prescriptions, etc.)
• 2 million ED visits per year
• 78 million text reports (e.g., chest x-rays,
operative notes)
• Founded in February 2004
• Based on the technology, knowledge, and
experience of Regenstrief Institute
• 70 employees
• Providing services to over hospitals, 19,000
clinicians, and 3 payers
• Serving a growing area with a current
population of 13 million people

CI-NET Practice and Subject Recruitment
 Trial Recruitment from Large Practices
 Large health systems such as Wishard Health System and
Indiana University Health have advanced information systems
and strong research interests and missions. We have developed
software to facilitate subject recruitment.
 Recruitment from Small Practices
 We are actively exploring using Docs4Docs as a mechanism to
reach into smaller practices to recruit subjects. Docs4Docs
delivers millions of messages to practices including electronic
copies of discharge summaries, operative notes, EKGs, and
radiology reports.
Engaging Smaller Practices
• DOCS4DOCS® developed by Regenstrief Institute is an
electronic results delivery service offered by IHIE.
• Receives results and clinical messages from the
participating data sources such as a hospital’s laboratory.
• Converts these results into a consistent, easy to use report
format, and delivers them to a secure, web-based inbox for
the intended responsible provider.
• Can also be transmitted via HL7 directly to a physician
practice’s EMR.
• Delivers lab results, hospital admission, discharge and
transfer summaries, transcriptions, EKGs, radiology
reports, and others.
• Provides Regenstrief/IHIE with a direct connection to over
19,000 physicians and their patients.
Evaluation Using 4 Mock Studies
1. Open-label Randomized Trial of Torsemide Compared with
Furosemide Therapy for Patients with Heart Failure
2. Estimate the incidence of long-term opioid initiation among
older patients with chronic non-cancer pain and estimate the
incidence of various drug effects
3. Comparative Effectiveness Research Trial of Alzheimer’s
disease [COMET-AD]
4. Intervening Now in Diabetes to Encourage Healthy Eating,
Activity and Linkages to Healthcare [INDE-HEALTH]
Variable Information Needs and Availability
Study 1
Study 2
• Information contained in INPC
• Information collected by ResNet
or interviewers
• Information collected by
practice personnel
Cover Letter and Teleform
SUMMARY
 To enhance the informatics infrastructure in Indiana to conduct
clinical research, Regenstrief Institute has created several programs
to support subject recruitment from the networks of large practices
and is creating the capacity to reach into smaller clinical practices.
 CI-Net is supported by the CTSI and has become a key connection
between the practitioners throughout Indiana and researchers at
Indiana, Purdue, and Notre Dame.
 We envision CI-Net as a valuable resource for CER involving drugs,
devices, diagnostics, and services and pragmatic trials.

CTSA Consortium Executive Committee
Three Objectives for SGC #4
Objective 1: (Recognized as the Priority Objective by CCEC) :Develop a CTSA Consortium-wide
strategy for community-engaged and comparative effectiveness research that leads to
improvements in the access, quality, and efficiency of healthcare delivery and the health of
diverse communities and the public. (*Metric followed by CCEC).
Objective 2: Collaborate and create synergies with a wide range of stakeholders (i.e., communities, health
departments, CTSA and other academic medical centers, NIH Institutes and Centers and other
DHHS Federal Partners) in planning and implementing community-engaged and comparative
effectiveness research and in disseminating the research findings.
Objective 3: Facilitate collaborations across CTSA institutions, PBRNs, and a broad cross-section of
practice settings that increase the nation’s capacity for innovative community-engaged and
comparative effectiveness research leading to the development of novel methodologies for
both conducting research and for implementing and disseminating the findings of that research.
CER KFC MISSION AND VISION STATEMENTS
HTTPS://WWW.CTSAWIKI.ORG/WIKI/DISPLAY/CER/COMPARATIVE+EFFECTIVENESS+RESEARCH-+HOME
Mission Statement
The Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) Key Function Committee builds the
field of comparative effectiveness research (CER) and patient-centered outcomes
research by creating a learning community across CTSA institutions, spurring the
development of methods, expanding training and education, promoting community
and public engagement, applying CER findings and sharing successes and lessons
learned.
Vision Statement
Through collaborative work products, the Comparative Effectiveness Research
(CER) Key Function Committee facilitates the generation and synthesis of evidence
about alternative interventions that results in actionable findings for policymakers,
clinicians, patients, and purchasers to use in improving the quality and outcomes of
patient-centered health care.
