    BR&R Use Cases

    Clinical Research Framework

    Introduce the core BR&R use cases that define our core interests and go on to describe the Clinical Research Framework that describes the overall process flow of drug development through trials and aggregation of evidence and experience from the real world.

    Set this in an Australian and Pacific context

    Clinical research is international, but BR&R have a high Europe and North America participation.  This session is an opportunity to extend the use cases and the framework to account for the APAC requirements.

    Clinical Research on FHIR Accelerator - Vulcan

    EBM On FHIR (Brian Alper)

    Describe the major components and objectives of the accelerator. An opportunity to understand the accelerator and if necessary join in.

    BRIDG  as a domain model for FHIR

    BRIDG is a domain model for all clinical research, but FHIR generally avoids domain models.  Discussion on the necessity of having a domain model and the extent to which BRIDG provides this.

    Will begin with a review of the BRIDG model if necessary.

    A good learning and development session.



    Using data for Cohort Selection

    Exploring the use of FHIR for identifying populations within data which specific shared characteristics of interestWhile this is looking from a clinical research perspective there are similar requirements across the spectrum of care.  This project has Australian roots.

    FHIR Resource Development

    • Using ConMan to test resources
    • Protocol / Schedule of Events / Arms
    • Outcomes
    • Site

    Validate ActivityDefinition, PlanDefinition, CarePlan and others for representing specific clinical research topics.

    These two quarters will explore the suitability of existing FHIR resources for representing the concepts mentioned.  A good way to learn to use FHIR and contribute to resource development
