Translational Research and Patient Safety in Europe (TRANSFoRm).
TRANSFoRm will develop rigorous, generic methods for the integration of Primary Care clinical and research activities, to support patient safety and clinical research via: - rich capture of clinical data, including symptoms and signs rather than just a clinical diagnosis. A generic, dynamic interface, with potential to operate with any electronic health record (eHR), will facilitatie both diagnostic decision support and identification of patients eligible for research, thus enhancing patient safety- distributed interoperability of eHR data and other data sources that maintains provenance, confidentiality and security. This will enable large-scale phenoptype-genotype association studies and follow-up of trials.- software tools and services to enable use of controlled vocabulary and standardised data elements in clinical research. This will enable integration and reuse of clinical data. The scientific aims of this project are to radically advance our understanding of ICT system interoperability relevant to healthcare and clinical research and to develop an EU-wide system capable of integrating Primary Care electronic health record systems and research systems.
