Researchers, healthcare organizations, and payers want to explore and analyze clinical data that has been integrated from multiple sources, such as electronic health records, claims data, and patient-reported outcomes. However, the volatility and both structural and semantic complexity of clinical data make this ideal vision of data repurposing difficult to achieve. Learn one approach to solving this problem using a tool called RexMart.

Reconfiguring EDC instruments for use by multiple EDC tools (such as REDCap, RexDB, or Qualtrics) results in a substantial waste of time and money and inhibits latter attempts to pool data across research projects. By making converters and libraries open source, researchers are not locked into one particular platform and can further develop the converters as needed. Learn how these converters were designed to streamline multi-site and multi-EDC research endeavors.
