Boston, April X, 2023 — Yonalink, a clinical trial software provider, today announced that its EHR-to- EDC data integration platform has been adopted by Rambam Health Care Campus. A world-class teaching hospital in northern Israel known for pioneering discoveries and contributions to medical science, Rambam is using YonaLink’s SaaS solution to securely and seamlessly integrate clinical care and research data in real time, driving greater speed, quality, and cost-effectiveness into their clinical trial data collection and validation.

Rambam is implementing Yonalink’s platform to automate the transfer and mapping of patient data directly from electronic health record (EHR) systems to clinical trial electronic data capture (EDC) systems. This capability will enable Rambam to expand existing and initiate new research collaborations, while extending the reach of the medical center’s cutting-edge R&D capabilities to clinical trial sponsors and research stakeholders worldwide.

“At Rambam, we conduct approximately 2,000 research studies at any given time, with nearly 40 trials started each month. To solve clinical challenges and address unmet needs for a diverse patient population, our scientists are active in basic and translational research encompassing a range of disease states and for which they take an integrative, interdisciplinary approach,” said Dr. Avivit Peer, Head of Clinical Trials at Rambam. “We are always on the lookout for tools that can advance collaboration and increase the study teams’ efficiency, while reducing costs and resource constraints, which, in turn, will allow us to accelerate and increase access to clinical trials. With Yonalink’s technology, we can stream and map up-to-date, patient data directly from EHRs to the clinical trial EDC in real time, eliminating the need for manual processes and freeing up time study teams can reallocate to more complex and patient-focused research activities.”

Itai Rechnitz, Yonalink’s COO and Co-Founder added: “The complexity of data reconciliation, systems integration, and interoperability gaps are among the longstanding challenges in clinical trial operations that YonaLink’s EHR-to-EDC platform solves for medical centers around the world. Our technology provides a comprehensive, scalable solution, bringing EDC and eSource functionality together in a single tool that provides the missing link between clinical care and clinical research. We’re excited to provide these benefits to a world-class medical center such as Rambam and partner with their study teams to optimize data management processes.”
