Clinical trials transformation: Mobile data capture Below is a common, HIPAA-eligible architecture pattern that AWS customers are using to incorporate mobile technologies into their clinical trials for improved access and better evidence generation. Amazon Cognito Amazon API Gateway Amazon QuickSight AWS Cloud Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose Amazon SNS Amazon S3 – Raw Data Amazon Redshift AWS Glue Amazon S3 – Processed Data Lambda Function Amazon DynamoDB Lambda Function Lambda Function Clinic / Patient Home Medical Sensor Mobile Client Trial Investigators /Coordinators Trial Participants Medical Device Edge collector Investigator triggered alerts Android iOS System driven alerts AWS IoT Core 1 2 3 5 4 Collect real-time, streaming data from medical devices and personal wearables. These are typically connected to an edge node or a smartphone to provide sufficient computing resources for streaming data to AWS IoT Core, which can then be configured to write data to Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose in near real-time. The edge node/smartphone uses AWS IoT SDKs to publish and subscribe device data to AWS IoT core using various AWS provided authentication methods. Customers can use the Amazon Kinesis server-side encryption feature, to achieve encryption-at-rest. Amazon Kinesis provides a scalable, highly available way to achieve loose coupling between data-producing (medical devices) and data- consuming (Amazon Lambda) layers. AWS can also capture additional data, such as Case Report Forms (CRF), Electronic Medical Records (EMR), medical images utilizing Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), laboratory data (Labs), and other Patient Reported Outcomes data (ePRO). AWS provides multiple tools and services to effectively and securely connect to these data sources, allowing customers to ingest data in various volumes, varieties, and velocities.
