Digital Data Flow Solutions

TransCelerate’s Digital Data Flow Initiative seeks to enable the flow of digital study protocol data in order to improve study design and accelerate start-up through automation of processes and setup of study execution systems. 

TransCelerate has collaborated with others on the development of an open-source, vendor agnostic, SDR Reference Implementation (SDR RI). The SDR Reference Implementation is based on a Unified Study Definitions Model (USDM) developed by CDISC. The SDR Reference Implementation enables the format of information from a digitized protocol and other sources to be standardized and stored centrally.  This allows information to be passed to systems through application programming interfaces (APIs) used for study execution and data collection and reused throughout the clinical development lifecycle.

In summary, DDF will combine data standards and open-source technology to enable the flow of digital protocol data across systems involved in the design and execution of a clinical trial.
