Archer for Hospitals
Archer for Sponsors
Archer will enable you to...
By freeing up time previously spent manually entering data, Archer gives hospital research staff precious time back to focus on more valuable tasks
Improve Data Quality
Accurate data – straight from source – means less requirement for monitoring queries and SDV (Source Data Verification), freeing up even more resource
Automated patient data transfer transforms productivity levels: sites can run more trials and recruit more patients per study. And sponsors typically award Archer-enabled sites more revenue-generating studies
Archer is system-agnostic and integrates with leading EHRs and EDCs for fast, accurate EHR-to-EDC data collection for all types of studies.
Getting Started With Archer
As a SMART on FHIR app sitting within the EHR, Archer is easy to install without a drain on precious hospital resources.
We have deep experience in partnering with hospital study sites, and can provide support and resource for every step of the process, including:
- Data protection impact assessment
- Data mapping
- License agreement
- Implementation and training
We have not used FHIR before, is it worth the effort?
100% yes! HL7 FHIR is seen as the future for general interoperability between internal system, so this is future proofing the hospital.
Once you have concept mapped your data to FHIR resources, you will be in a position to develop your own add-on apps to the EHR or purchase other applications now available.
We do not receive primary-care data. Will this be an issue?
This isn’t usually a concern. Many research departments input the medication history into systems such as Epic and Cerner, at patient visits during the study. Providing this has been entered and coded correctly, Archer will pick it up from the FHIR feeds. Our technical support teams can help you review this during the setup process.
Do we retain control of our data if we use Archer?
The site investigator is always in control of the data. Regulatory-grade data is securely transferred to the EDC via the cloud and no data is retained within Archer.
Which sponsors are using Archer?
Archer integrates with all leading study databases, for example, Rave, Castor, Cisive. IgniteData’s Archer technology is actively being used or integrated with some of the largest sponsors and CROs in the world.
How much time will Archer save me on data entry?
Analysis of a live study indicated that using Archer automation in place of manual data entry yields a 96%-time saving per patient visit.
Assess Your eSource-readiness
eSource (or electronic source) data is information that is already available in digital form within hospitals’ EHRs. For everyone involved in clinical research today, there is huge potential to make better use of this data.
Many hospital EHRs are already able to take advantage of HL7 FHIR standards and SMART on FHIR apps. Put simply, they are eSource-ready; primed to plug in directly to an EDC or other system using Archer’s data automation technology.
This interoperability of systems has huge benefits for clinical research: not least as the secure, automated transfer of data from EHR-to-EDC saves thousands of hours of effort spent on the manual transfer of data.
