HC-SIG Subgroup Updates

  • Patient/Member Subgroup (Deniz Coskun, Lead)

We met in the last two weeks outside of the subgroup meetings, and continued with the use case definition. 
Decision to fix the scope :

  • The use case will be on "Clinical Trials for a Diabetes Treatment with Wearables"
  • Patient Consent Process is the focus, for Site Selection, Patient Recruitment and Study Monitoring Processes
  • BRIDG Model reference for the Clinical Trials Data Model  
  • Smart on FHIR  as Data Standard for the Data Transfer between EHR2EDC 
  • Separate Data Consolidation and Process Execution on Blockchain

Robert Learney and Alex Zhovnuvaty joined to team. Welcome!

I contacted to company  

Open points:

  • Patient Data GitHub for the Project is requested
  • Health Monitoring Process has many similarities Clinical Trials.  
  • When is consent required more than once? For example: When a new PaaS AI supplier accesses the data? When during monitoring something new/different is monitored in the patient such as moods using a mood-tracking App? ( See )
  • How can we design the Hyperledger Consent API to be universally used in all cases? Standardization? 

    • API Structure is to be defined

  • Clinical trials use AI monitoring engine linked to a drug treatment plan? 

  • What is the particular Treatment in Diabetes?
