use case draft____RE: [BIONT-DSE] Clinical Observations Interoperability Telcon August 28th, Tuesday 11:00am - 12:00pm US EDT


I am attaching some background information on the use case for
discussion on tomorrow at 11 eastern.


I will do my best to lead the call and get feedback on the context of
the use case, and the constructs that might be of most interest. The
attached document describes the idea of querying EMR data for patients
potentially eligible for a given research protocol, and includes the
eligibility criteria from 3 breast cancer studies that are listed on These examples illustrate the many constructs (lab,
findings, history, procedures, diagnosis, mutation....) that are found
in "eligibility" criteria, which is a big challenge for the group. I
think some discussion and consensus from the group will help to focus a
general use case over the next few weeks.

I hope that Landen and Bron (from CDISC) can then elaborate on which
CDISC standards might be most applicable here, and perhaps see how this
context relates to an earlier demo on EMR-CDISC harmonization that was
conducted at HIMSS last year.
