The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), through the Advancing Clinical Trials Readiness Initiative, is building a stronger and more diverse clinical trial infrastructure. This will result in making clinical trials faster, more inclusive, simple and more efficient. Two of HL7’s FHIR Accelerators™, Vulcan and CodeX, are working with OSTP on this effort.

Vulcan is dedicated to connecting clinical and translational research to clinical care, while CodeX is committed to advancing clinical specialty FHIR-based standards in cancer, genomics and cardiovascular health. These two accelerators are working together with OSTP to leverage the use of HL7 FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources®) standards to support these efforts for the standardized exchange of data.

Per the OSTP Collaboration:

“OSTP is working with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the HL7 FHIR Accelerator community on faster clinical trial data capture. Vulcan, together with CodeX and others, is stepping up to speed the development of standardized approaches to data exchange, with the goal of piloting faster and more inclusive data capture for multi-site clinical trials. “
