To improve the efficiency of clinical research, we developed a system to integrate electronic medical records (EMRs) and the electronic data capture system (EDC). EDC is divided into case report form (CRF) reporter and CDMS with CRF receiver with data communication using the operational data model (ODM). The CRF reporter is incorporated into the EMR to share data witth the EMR. In the data transcription type, doctors enter data using a progress note template, which are transmitted to the reporter template. It then generates the ODM. In the direct record type, reporter templates open from the progress note and generate narrative text to make record in the progress note. The configuration files for a study are delivered from the contents server to minimize the setup. This system has been used for 15 clinical studies including 3 clinical trials. This system can save labor and financial costs in clinical research.
