While the clinical informatics field has matured, a gap still exists between data collection methods for clinical care and clinical research needs, making efforts to bridge data from these sources challenging, time consuming and prone to error. In an industry where it typically takes $2.6 billion dollars and average 10-15 years to bring a therapy to market, driving interoperability between clinical care and research data can be a path toward decreasing spend and shortening this runway. This panel will highlight how to best bridge the clinical and research informatics domains to improve experiences in clinical research and ultimately benefit the patient.
