A cancer patient identifies clinical trials for which she may be eligible. She uses tools that she can access directly, and she does not have to do manual transcription of clinical data. Rather, the patient facing matching tools leverage structured patient data from the electronic health record (EHR) and structured descriptions of clinical trial eligibility criteria to assess matches.
Patient wants to identify clinical trials for which she meets the eligibility criteria to enroll.
Patient views a list of clinical trials in which she may be eligible to enroll.
What if there are no matching clinical trials?
What do we accept to be true? May need to be validated by partners.
|Scope||This use case addresses patients finding clinical trials. Providers use of the clinical trial matching tool on behalf of their patients is covered in a separate use case.|
ACS CAN is involved in a workgroup that is analyzing which data elements are most impactful for capturing trial eligibility criteria. Candidate elements include:
*May serve as subtype for some cancers (e.g. breast)
**Can drop "lines of therapy" from minimal set of data if needed
