Dedalus announces a strategic partnership with ObvioHealth to unite real world & clinical trial data
The partnership will unite Dedalus’s software solutions with ObvioHealth’s proprietary decentralized clinical trial tools.
Milan, June 07 2021 – Dedalus Group the leading healthcare and diagnostic software solutions provider in Europe is bringing clinical trial data fully into the continuum of care through a new strategic partnership with ObvioHealth, a global virtual research organization (VRO). The partnership will unite Dedalus’s software solutions with ObvioHealth’s proprietary decentralized clinical trial tools. This will connect the dots between clinical research and EHR (Electronic Health Record) data while supporting healthcare providers from 6000+ hospitals and clinics across the world to deliver care to more than 330 million patients.
The initial stage of the partnership will allow sponsors and other research organizations to collaborate with healthcare providers who can offer meta-data insights from patient records without moving or revealing any actual EHR data. This will enable researchers to conduct granular prognostic and predictive analysis for improved study design and recruitment of more precise subpopulations of patient cohorts, giving healthcare professionals and their patients the opportunity to contribute to and/or participate in research, while maintaining full control of their data, in compliance with stringent European privacy and data safety regulations.
“Dedalus’ vision is one of a digitally-enabled healthcare ecosystem where all stakeholders actively collaborate to improve each citizen's health outcomes.”, says Andrea Fiumicelli, CEO of Dedalus. “This partnership fits perfectly into that vision, as it will offer our current customers the ability to perform and contribute to research more effectively, progressing new therapies and care pathways.”
“At a time when personalized medicine is on the rise and the ROI on drug development is declining, we must make research dollars work harder, says Ivan Jarry, CEO of ObvioHealth. “There is tremendous and rich data available on any number of disease states, comorbidities and biomarkers that can inform clinical trials. The integration of clinical research with the data that sits within EHRs (Electronic Health Records) has the potential to be a game changer. Dedalus and ObvioHealth are enabling more precise identification of cohorts for trials while also facilitating longitudinal analyses that can identify new indications and/or long-term impacts of certain treatments.”
"With this partnership, we are aiming to improve translational medicine through a spectrum of options, from decentralized trials…all the way to synthetic trials, leveraging the full potential of existing real-world data to allow for clinical learning and validation of all kinds of therapeutical approaches" adds Dr. Michael Dahlweid, MD, PhD, the Chief Product & Clinical Officer at Dedalus Group.
In keeping with the goal of improving the continuum of care, the 2partnership will also offer researchers data services outside the boundaries of traditional clinical trials, for the purposes of training AI enabled tools and/or developing diagnostic instruments that can provide deeper and/or longitudinal analysis of certain disease states. In parallel, the collaboration will enrich healthcare provider insights by integrating point in time clinical research into the daily workflow Dedalus’ network of hospitals.
“Up until now, the clinical trial environment has been very separate from that of the care universe. The data from each is structured differently and there is no common language, requiring a tremendous effort to extract and homogenize data with suboptimal results,” says Koenraad Batselier, Vice President for Life Sciences Business Development at Dedalus Group. “By helping researchers to gain insights from the full sets of GDPR compliant, real-world data for their trials and giving clinicians access to more clinical trial opportunities for their patients, we are bringing the two worlds together, with the potential to accelerate and improve clinical trial outcomes, while contributing to a better continuum of care. We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with ObvioHealth to bring this innovative platform to market.”
