Seamless Dataflow with a Clinical Metadata Repository

  1. 1. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. SEAMLESS DATAFLOW WITH A CLINICAL METADATA REPOSITORY September 27th 2017, La Jolla, CA Julius Kusserow
  2. 2. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 2 AGENDA • Problems we observe • Hub & spoke model – to connect the data • Study instance metadata – to have a machine readable protocol • The metadata repository (MDR) – to bring it all together • Having all together - Benefits for using the PAREXEL Clinical MDR to Manage Metadata on Studies
  3. 3. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 3 ABOUT PAREXEL • A leading global biopharmaceutical services organization • 30+ years assisting clients in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries • We are physicians, technologists, business process experts, and more WE ARE A TEAM OF EXPERTS DEDICATED TO YOUR JOURNEY TO MARKET.
  4. 4. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 4 WHAT WE OFFER PAREXEL is focused on end-to-end integrated solutions – from product strategy and clinical development through market access and lifecycle management. We simplify the journey between science and new treatments by applying: BEST MINDS PROBLEM-SOLVINGINNOVATION
  5. 5. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 5 PROBLEM 1: DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF THE SAME PROTOCOL • Different interpretations of protocol • Need for data reconciliation • Time to build integrated SDTM data sets, ADaM & TLFs
  6. 6. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 6 PROBLEM 2: LINEAR BUILD - “WALKING THE LINE“ We work in a linear way… with circles ANALYZE Tabulation data needs to be available before the analysis datasets are created Comment TABULATE Data needs to be entered before we can produce tabulation data (SDTM) Wait Comment BUILD We need to build a database before we can enter data Wait
  7. 7. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 7 PROBLEM 3: MISALIGNMENT OF STUDIES TO STANDARDS Standard Study 1 Study 2 Study 3≠ ≠ • Studies follow standard on a structure level, but diverge on the implementation of variable content which could lead to different semantics. • Harmonization costs additional time.

The pattern allows a logical association between: • one Domain Definition Variable in the Hub, representing a concept • and different Spoke Variables, representing different expressions of the concept
  9. 9. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 9 … IN AN EXAMPLE • Mapping by declaration to concepts • Allows End to End (E2E) data flow dry-run without data • Study teams worry about the what not the how • ISO 21090 BASED CLINICAL RECOGNIZABLE CONCEPTS • DATA IS MAPPED TO AND FROM A HUB • USABLE FOR CDISC AND OTHER DATA MODELS (HUB) CDASH / Data Collection AESEV Severity SDTM / Data Tabulation AESEV Severity/Intensity (SPOKES) AE Domain Definition Pattern Ordinal Coded Item Concept SEV Severity/Intensity ADaM / Data Analysis AESEV Severity/Intensity AESEVN Severity/Intensity (N) ASEV Analysis Severity/Intensity ASEVN Analysis Severity/Intensity (N) SEVGRy Pooled Severity Group y SEVGRyN Pooled Severity Group y (N)

  11. 11. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 11 STUDY INSTANCE METADATA - THE MACHINE READABLE PROTOCOL Common Process • Different interpretations of protocol • Need for data reconciliation • Time to build integrated SDTM data sets, ADaM & TLFs 3 Tier approach with MDR & SCE • One single interpretation of protocol • Increased consistency and data quality • Reduced time for integration

  13. 13. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 13 • Hub and spokes model bridged all cracks between the different department standards • Development of concepts and pattern is a cross functional effort The MDR is necessary to: • Maintain all the metadata on a standard level • Give study team the tools to handle the metadata • Study teams see impact on down the line activities during planning • Study Instance Metadata (SIM) brought study execution closer to standards governance DATA BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER TECHNOLOGYORGANIZATION PAREXEL CLINICAL MDR Enabling MDR Technology Underpinning by Hub, Spokes, Concepts & Pattern Aligned Governance Processes
  14. 14. © 2017 PAREXEL INTERNATIONAL CORP. / 14 • Each setup along the line is aware of upstream & downstream impact. • Concepts allow to focus on the content and avoid common traps. • Study related standards governance reduced • Metadata driven mapping • Better setup • Ability to have mappings earlier BENEFITS QUALITY EFFORTSTUDY TIMELINES
