ADAPTABLE Recruitment and Follow-up: Health Plan Research Network Engagement

Keywords

Real-world evidence; Real-world data; Study design; Claims data; ADAPTABLE; Patient recruitment; Pragmatic clinical trial; Electronic health record; Informed consent; Learning health system

Key Points

  • We need integrated EHR data and claims data in order to close evidence gaps in observational pharmacoepidemiology studies and comparative effectiveness trials.
  • The health plan claims data environment can be leveraged to support real-world evidence studies.
  • An integrated health plan network database can be a resource for data about eligibility, lab test results, and pharmacy claims. In a pragmatic clinical trial, using health plan data can provide a longitudinal electronic approach to endpoint ascertainment.

Discussion Themes

Have you had a chance to do any cost analysis of this high-volume, low-touch method of recruitment?

In the ADAPTABLE enrollment portal, it seems the biggest chunk of time (reading about the study) came before the screening questions. Do you think swapping the order might have improved enrollment?
