Tuberculosis & Cardiology Projects

RCRIM Presentation

HL7 WGM January 2007 (San Diego)



  • Background, Objectives, Methodology

  • Project specific details

    • Tuberculosis Project

    • Cardiology Project

  • Questions & Discussion

Background project objectives

Background & Project Objectives

  • Funded by two independent NIH Roadmap contracts

  • Focus on methodology for developing therapeutic area data standards

  • Produce real, useful products along the way

  • Report on experience, process, best practices back to the larger community



  • Develop and/or contribute to data exchange standards within SDOs (HL7, CDISC…)

    • Implementation Guide

  • Publish consensus set of Common Data Elements (CDE’s)

  • Generate a Domain Analysis Model

    • including storyboards, use cases and activity diagram artifacts



  • Data collected for patient care must support multiple re-uses, including research

    • Clinical data for patient care and research are the same.

  • Stakeholders need to represent as many of the uses of the data as possible

    • Clinicians, researchers, standards organizations, industry, international…



  • Engage stakeholders in objectives

  • Select a use case from stakeholder contributions to define specific project scope and objectives

  • Develop a consensus set of CDE’s used in use case

  • Use case and CDE’s guide DAM development

  • Incorporate interchange standards under the DAM

Cde process

CDE Process

  • Collect & aggregate data elements from stakeholders current databases

  • Convene expert group to select ‘Package 1’ and focus on terminology, definitions, value lists

    • Clinical leadership at core of group, supported by experts from CDISC, NCI, HL7…

    • Biweekly conference calls

  • Release for public comment

  • Publish via NCI EVS/caDSR

Dam process

DAM Process

  • Start with pretty good understanding of storyboards, activity diagrams, use cases and CDE’s to set scope

  • Work with experienced modeler

  • Vetted by stakeholders

  • A use of DAM, provide context (associations) for Data Elements that will be provided to NCI’s caDSR.

Tb specifics

Draft of CRF modules using current TB package #1 data elements.

WHO is aware of the initiative

TBTN needs to engage pharmaceutical companies in the process

Continue to engage the global communities



Time Zones

Country Resources

TB not high priority in US

Much of the work is International

Technology is limited in many countries

Additional Funding to continue

TB Specifics

Creating implementing and sharing best practices for clinical trials networks

Creating, Implementing, and Sharing Best Practices for Clinical Trials Networks

This project has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the National Institutes of Health, under contract No. HHSN268200425212C, "Re-Engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise."

  • Clinical focus

    • Acute ischemic heart disease/Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS)

  • Use Cases

    • A clinical site reporting data to a quality improvement registry (also IHE RFD use case)

      • HL7 CDA

    • A research study sending data to another organization or for regulatory submission

      • CDISC SDTM

Status of related standards work

Status of related standards work

  • HL7 CDA

    • 1st draft mapping of ACC NCDR to HL7 CDA completed

    • To do – 1st draft Implementation Guide

    • Get feedback on work from HL7 groups


    • 1st draft in development mapping of ACC NCDR to SDTM

    • Need to understand relationship to BRIDG and HL7 efforts



  • ‘Multiple data re-use’ pilot for future

    • Implement the draft HL7 CV CDA for reporting data to the ACC’s NCDR registry and to SDTM model

  • ‘Single Source’ clinical trial

    • Use existing HL7 messaging to report data directly to a large international phase III trial electronic data capture system.



  • All feedback & comments welcome

  • Domain Analysis Model: How should a clinical domain DAM relate to other models (i.e. BRIDG, Detailed Clinical Models (DCM)?

  • eDCI Message: What should we know in relation to these projects?

  • SDTM & HL7 v3: Work related to the cardiology SDTM-CDA piece to know about?

  • CDE’s & EVS/caDSR: Work related to TB standard CRFs to know about?
