  • Approach
    • Investigate Opportunities & challenges (barriers)
    • Identify use cases (inventory of what can be done)
      • Area 1: data standards
      • Area 2: represent clinical trial data in RDF (more experimental – done by W3C)
      • Area 3: annotated TLFs with information on where the data came from (linked to traceability)
      • Area 4. Modelling the protocol (try to understand what is feasible with what has already been done)
    • Linking with other “knowledge providers” (NCI, BRIDG, SNOMED, ..)
  • Deliverable:
    • Readiness assessment – is semantic web technology useful or not - and what is the relationship meta data ?

    • (see project proposal from Fred – deliverable every 3 months)
project b data visualization
Project B. Data Visualization
  • Objective/Scope: identify new technologies on how to navigate into lots of information to find the “tree in the forest” (e.g. safety signal) ……
  • Approach
    • Identification of audience (reviewers, DMC, …) and related pain points where visualization could help in facilitating decision making
    • Uses case/requirements: why/how data visualization (in addition to table) Note: make sure to re-use work done already (including work done at FDA/DIA) around visualization
      • Scientific reviewers (NIH, FDA CDER, FDA CBER, sponsor medical team..)
      • How does clinical data monitoring/visualization translates into risk based monitoring
      • Should we include in there a gallery of visualization possibilties
    • Identify open source technology that could support visualization faster/better/cheaper
    • Interface/integration between data visualization tools and data standards – what would be the requirements for data visualization
    • Develop test cases (e.g. NIH) with one
  • Deliverable:
    • Stakeholder and Use case document
    • Catalogue of open source tools that would fit requirements
    • Requirement for data standards
    • Pilot with one tool (expanding on NIH ?)

    • practical guide on how to implement meta-data management (potentially with existing tools) within an organisation for a single trial
    • Gather set of key requirements for Meta data management tool that would fulfil the needs for an E2E process within an organisation , as well as supporting data consistency for cross trial analysis
  • Approach
    • Define study level meta-data versus enterprise wide meta-data (what is needed to ensure automation)
    • Main user needs (collect user stories) at different phases: protocol definition, system set-up, data visualization & monitoring, integration of collected data, analysis & reporting ..

project 3 study level standards define xml study meta data in janus bridg do they fit
Project 3. Study level standards, define.xml, Study meta data in JANUS/BRIDG: do they fit ?
  • Objective/Scope: ensure that the meta-data defined in sponsor and send to FDA through define.xml fit the need of JANUS (and BRIDG based scientific data repository) for cross trial analysis
  • Approach
    • Describe how study level meta-data + trial summary in SDTM are stored in BRIDG (DefineActivity) – is this enough for cross trial analysis ?
      • Need to confirm if this is include visit
    • How define.xml can be transformed into DefinedActivity – is define complete ?
  • Deliverable:
    • Recommendation for update on content/format to define.xml
    • Specification of transformation function from define.xml to BRIDG DefineActivity
  • Timelines: 6 to 12 months
project 4 contextual meta data for cross trial analysis
Project 4. Contextual meta data for cross trial analysis
  • Objective/Scope: definition of “contextual” metadata needed to support data analysis – in addition to structural meta data such as SDTM - and that should be collected together with the data during clinical trial execution.
  • Approach
    • collect and document concrete examples (“user stories”) encountered by staff performing cross trial analysis with different type of contextual information that would be useful to have in the context of data analysis (primary or secondary) of clinical trial data.
    • Note: would this be specific for a Therapeutic Area or can they be general across TA ? - to be further clarified after few user stories
      • Check with AdAM team and Integrated Analysis group to ensure we build on work done
    • extract patterns out of these user stories and define a generic structure that would allow to store and exchange this information between the different stakeholders . The structure should be compliant with ISO21090 and BRIDG
    • Characterize how we would store & exchange these metadata (as part of define.xml ???)
    • Pilot the propose exchange standardApproach
  • Deliverable:
    • Description of additional – non structural like SDTM – meta data to be collected and store for cross trial analysis

background on meta data discussion
Background on Meta data discussion
  • 6 recurrent themes
    • Consistent use across the life-cycle (Protocol, SAP ----> Submission)
    • Across studies within an organisation
    • Across studies and across partners
    • Move away from MS Excel
    • Version management (versions of standards, terminology, what used when)
    • Extensible metadata structures
  • Scope
    • Structural meta data (SDTM, terminology)
    • Operational meta data (contextual, implicit info)
    • Master data
problem and how metadata helps
Problem and how metadata helps?
  • Attendee No 1.
    • Communicate across groups within a company the data needs
    • To pass data across groups
    • E.g. Relationships Body Position with Observation value
  • No 2.
    • Protocol, data collection, tabulations stds
    • If one changes, how is rest kept consistent
    • E.g. Impact analysis for a change
  • No 3.
    • Share across silos, need to share the semantics
    • Unambiguous communication
  • No 4.
    • Analyse across different studies
    • Semantics needs to be consistent
    • Structured and unstructured metadata
problem and how metadata helps1
Problem and how metadata helps?
  • No 5.
    • Standards management, consistent and checking when used in studies, all aligns
    • Version management
  • No 6.
    • Use it to support the lifecycle
    • More automation
    • E.g. schedule of events out of protocol
  • No 7.
    • Terminology management
    • Managing the CDISC terminology
  • No 8.
    • End to end process, across different collections systems
    • Away from excel
    • E.g. Protocol amendments, the unstructured logic behind
problem and how metadata helps2
Problem and how metadata helps?
  • No 9.
    • Define concept once and reuse many
    • e.g. Endpoints and population from protocol into SAP, copied by hand
    • Version management
  • No 10.
    • Tools need to adapt to changing needs and greater capability
    • Version management
  • No 11.
    • Clinical observation metadata ok, rapid version change
    • While still serving the current business needs
    • What did we use when, what versions used
  • No 12.
    • Is XML passed its sell by date, can it meets the need
    • Traceability, providence
    • Building on shifting sands of constant version change
    • Automation, remove silios
problem and how metadata helps3
Problem and how metadata helps?
  • No 13.
    • Within org ok, outsourcing causes lack of understanding, communication
    • E.g. SDTM Domain spec to CRO
  • Consistent use across the life-cycle
    • Protocol, SAP ----> Submission
  • Across studies within an organisation
  • Across studies and across partners
  • Move away from MS Excel
  • Version management (versions of standards, terminology, what used when)
  • Extensible metadata structures
  • Definition of metadata
    • Structural
      • Description of the data, e.g. SDTM, data point attributes and data source, terminologies
    • Non structural
      • Protocol amendment, data traceability
    • Master data
    • SAP?
