(Mick) Murray, PharmD, MPH Regenstrief Institute Purdue University College of Pharmacy 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 INPC Data Management and Services Data Management Data Access & Use Hospitals Hospital Payers Health Information Exchange Physicians Labs Labs Data Repository Network Applications Outpatient RX Physician Office Results delivery Secure document transfer Shared EMR Credentialing Eligibility checking • • • • • • Results delivery Secure document transfer Shared EMR CPOE Credentialing Eligibility checking • Results delivery Public Health • • • • Payer • Secure document transfer • Quality Reporting Public Health Ambulatory Centers • • • • • Researchers Surveillance Reportable conditions Results delivery De-identified, longitudinal clinical data • De-identified, longitudinal clinical data 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. 2013+ Vision Natural Language Processing Public Health Informatics Health Geographics Health System Redesign Clinical Epidemiology CTSI Informatics and Data Analysis Center Data Mining Research Planning and Infrastructure Clinical Decision Support and QI Bioinformatics Visual Analytics High Performance Computing Security and Privacy Project Team • Project Management Patty McGuire Sarah Hoover Corey Whitley • ResNet – Jane French – Brenda Hudson • Data Core – Evgenia Teal – Faye Smith • Software Engineering – Jeremy Leventhal – Mike Barnes, MD – Hui Xiao • Biomedical Informatics – Bill Tierney, MD – Paul Dexter, MD • Administration – Anantha Shekhar, MD UPCOMING CER SCIENTIFIC PRESENTATION STATISTICAL INFRASTRUCTURE FOR COMBINING MULTIPLE DATA SOURCES IN CER October 15th Presented by: Trivellore Raghunathan, PHD UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH WELCOME VOLUNTEERS or SUGGESTIONS WORKGROUP REPORTS 11:16AM DIR Workgroup co-Leads: Paul Meissner and Jonathan Tobin October 2011 Merged Collaboration and Dissemination and Implementation Workgroups launched into one WG: newly named as Dissemination and Implementation Research WG Fall –Winter 2011 1.

(*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.
