 Data Transformation Initiative

The CIBMTR Data Transformation Initiative will focus initially on new methods for data collection. The Initiative's vision is to optimize the acquisition and utilization of entrusted data assets to accelerate breakthroughs that transform patient experiences. The CIBMTR has partnered with IQVIA, a company known worldwide for its expertise in building technology solutions customized for research networks engaged in complex data exchange. The CIBMTR will continue to own all data and the resulting new data ecosystem and technical solutions developed.

Work is already underway to inform the design and development of a prototype for data acquisition that will enable a "source to target" approach using electronic data capture for data that does not require clinical interpretation. The CIBMTR will pilot the prototype with a few initial sites and evaluate its performance together with the sites to inform future expansion of the prototype. Pilot partner sites for this work are currently being assessed as candidates for the pilot. The initiative will strive to identify as many as five sites that can install the prototype beginning in April for initial testing. Sites selected will represent the diversity of technology systems that comprise the network to ensure development work will be applicable for all sites in the future.
