This white paper outlines the philosophy, methods, and deliverables for the PhUSE Computational Sciences Symposium Emerging Trends and Technology working group project “Clinical Trials Data as RDF.” The project was formed to investigate the feasibility of using Linked Data as a future-proof technology for clinical trials results. Linked data is a collection of interrelated datasets that is achieved using Semantic Web tools. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a general-purpose language for representing information in a graph-based data model that defines unique entities and the relationships between them.

The Pharmacist eCare Plan (PeCP) allows for an interoperable note to be used in the pharmacy to assist in the exchange of patient information, including active medication list, laboratory results, and payer information.

Some have described it as months of silence from when they send a request for proposal (RFP) until they have a proposal in hand. The initial stages of a relationship between drug sponsor and CDMO often do not get the attention it deserves, and valuable time is lost, delaying projects and delaying delivery of therapeutics to patients. The quick scheduling of the ACT meeting with the right attendees can deliver immediate answers to key questions needed by the drug sponsor for effective planning and can help propel projects to a successful launch.
