In fact, oncology centers are often the bottlenecks for cancer research, as they are not able to cope with the increased demand from pharmaceutical researchers on effective trials. Most clinics and centers today have no structured overview, collection and analysis of patient, treatment and trial data, and are battling diverse and outdated IT tools, making current trial management expensive and inefficient - all factors that prevent freeing up necessary clinical trial resources.
This insight has launched a unique innovation collaboration between software company SAP, and renowned Cancer Clinic Gustave Roussy, France, to tangibly improve design, quality and speed of clinical trials for cancer treatments and reduce costs for trials through a smart solution. In the current validation phase, SAP and Gustave Roussy have built further partnerships and relationships with pharma companies, hospitals and oncology centers, like Bayer, Servier, Pierre Fabre, Biomérieux, AP-HP and others, to verify challenges and gain an accurate problem understanding in order to develop the solution and enter into the next phase of business development.
The lecture gives an overview of the business idea, the growing ecosystem of partners involved, the results of the ideation, validation and benchmarking phases undertaken so far, and the next steps of the program. Key to success is the engagement of several clinics to enable testing of accelerated clinical trials based on research, clinical and patient data. CliR is now proactively looking for support from clinics to participate in this phase of validation, and mid-term, to test the solution.
The software solution aims at improving electronic case report forms for clinical trials. The current problems are:
In spite of a plethora of software supporting Clinical Trial, Electronic Data Capture’s current solutions :
• Require Developers to implement forms and data quality control
• Do not support streamlined collaboration between the medical staff and the patients
• Do not support automatic data capture, nor real time reporting or predictive analysis
• Do not offer consumer grade user experience
• Considers the Patient only as a source of data
The 1 Billion Lives initiative is SAP’s worldwide nurture program for intrapreneurship (employee-generated entrepreneurship) using SAP technology to create social impact on many people. Created and executive sponsored by Adaire Fox-Martin, member of SAP’s global board, all 7 SAP’s geographical regions are engaged to incubate new business. Funding of winning projects is provided by: SAP.io and SAP Fund and Incubation Studio.
In the Northern Europe section of SAP’s 1 BL lives initiative, the incubator CliR for smarter clinical research and trials won the regional competition 2018 and was selected to join the SAP.io Intrapreneurship Accelerator Programme.
To further validate and develop their innovations, the initiative CliR is looking for clinics to participate in the current validation and later in the testing phase.
