BearingPoint Breakfast: Improving R&D access to local patient records data
A BearingPoint breakfast event to share the benefits of a tool which increases the effectiveness and timeliness for researchers in identifying and tracking suitable patients for clinical trials using local patient records with personal information removed.
The tool was developed in collaboration with South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London.
This online search tool allows authorised researchers to find patients that match on data and text for demographics, diagnoses and medications, treatment plans, clinical outcomes within patient records.
The tool can be quickly tested and then implemented locally with early benefits which:
• Improve the time taken to test R&D hypotheses
• Improve reliability and validation of recruitment commitments
• Improve identification of potential cohorts
Practitioners will be sharing their experiences of using the tool to speed up and improve research within the Trust and Biomedical Research Centre environments.
“By allowing researchers to test an idea in seconds not months, you liberate them to follow hunches and try things out without having to abandon other avenues. It’s an immensely powerful proposition and the potential is incredible.”

This event is being held at Saddlers Wells, Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R 4TN
