Single Source Information Systems to Connect Patient Care and Clinical Research
Dugas M, Breil B, Thiemann V, Lechtenbörger J, Vossen G
Currently documentation processes for routine patient care and clinical research are kept separate (dual source). Due to overlaps between routine and research documentation, a single source approach provides opportunities to improve efficiency of medical documentation given the large workload of physicians related to documentation. Organisational, technical and regulatory conditions need to be considered for the design of single source systems. We present a single source architecture for clinical studies and provide results from pilot implementations.
