8.23 Resource ResearchSubject - Content

Regulated Clinical Biomedical Research Information Management and Regulation Work Group Maturity Level : 0   Draft Trial Use Security Category : Patient Compartments : Patient

A process where a researcher or organization plans and then executes a series of steps intended to increase the field of healthcare-related knowledge. This includes studies of safety, efficacy, comparative effectiveness and other information about medications, devices, therapies and other interventional and investigative techniques. A ResearchStudy involves physical entity which is the gathering primary unit of information about human or animal subjects. operational and/or administrative interest in a study.

This A research subject is the entity of interest in a research study, typically a human being or an animal, but can also be a device, group of humans or animals, or a tissue sample. The ResearchSubject resource supports describes essential information about the HL7 mission to create subject, including the gender, birthdate, study, study arm, consent status, and promote HL7 standards by developing RCRIM standards other key items. Human research subjects are usually not traceable to improve or enhance information management during clinical a particular person to protect the subject’s privacy.

The ResearchSubject resource is used in the following research activities:

  • Consent and regulatory evaluation registration to a research study
  • Exposure to test therapy
  • Assessment of the safety, efficacy and quality test therapy results
  • Reporting of therapeutic products and procedures worldwide. adverse events
