Looking back on a successful first InSite User Group Meeting12 Jun 2017
We look back with pride to our first InSite User Group Meeting in May. 47 participants coming from 20 hospitals from all over Europe joined us in Brussels to exchange ideas about how InSite can change their way of working.The questions raised and new opportunities created by the re-use of Real World Data were the topic of the presentations of that day.
Prof. Schindler (MHH, Hannover, Germany) and Dr. Diaz (Fundación HM, Madrid, Spain) opened the sessions with a general overview of the benefits of our platform. They are amongst the first hospitals connected to the platform and thus have a lot of experience to share. An important item was the reflection on data protection and the security of the privacy of our platform by Prof. Krugel (Germany). Tangible cases of the potential use of the cohort tool were presented by Dr. Legrand (Healthcareconsult, Belgium). More examples of how the platform can be used to analyze the patient population were provided by Dr. Serrano (Hospital 12 de Octobre, Madrid, Spain). Dr. Nanni (IRST, Meldola, Italy) presented the results of a retrospective validation exercise that showed that the InSite platform managed to identify 100% of patients that were previously enrolled in a (past) clinical trial.
We ended the day with a panel discussion. Pharma representatives highlighted the point of view of the pharma on a complete new way of conducting clinical trials using the InSite Real World Data platform. It has proven to be a valuable opportunity to interact, connect and exchange.
