Unique Technology

Clinerion applies intelligent, patented informatics methodologies to extract and interpret information from large amounts of electronic health records, aggregating healthcare information across institutions and geographies, and creating one single comprehensive real-time view.

Clinerion’s technology maps the terminologies of sponsors and trial sites, so that trial protocols can be consistently and effectively queried across many platforms, creating one single comprehensive view for protocol optimization, site feasibility and subsequent real-time patient search and identification. Clinerion provides the only solution in the market which combines:

  • Multi-dimensional query definition with six dimensions of patient data and unlimited criteria
  • Real-time search across multiple networked electronic health record systems made interoperable by the use of semantic and ontology methods
  • A highly scalable hybrid cloud- and federated-local installation-based platform.

Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer only receives de-identified, unlinked patient information from the hospital. This undergoes many complex processes to bring data from a multitude of hospitals and information systems, and a plethora of local medical conventions to the same level and ensure that all networked hospitals can be addressed at the same level with one single query. Clinerion’s technology extracts, normalizes, completes and “cleanses” data from existing EHRs to ensure semantic interoperability between them, before indexing them. These many processes represent the expertise and know-how of Clinerion.

Clinerion’s system then can screen the EHRs, including coded information (for diagnoses, treatments, medications, etc.), data (e.g. demographics, lab values) and free text (such as narratives and reports), longitudinally, across time. Eligibility criteria can be mapped between standard medical and hospital-specific terminologies, while free text is screened with the support of a natural language processing technologies.

Proprietary Technology / Intellectual Property

Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer is built around a number of proprietary, cutting-edge, big data analytics technologies. Clinerion has been granted patents for three of these technologies:

  • “Semantic Interoperability System for Medicinal Information” (U.S. Patent US 9,384,327 B2, Patent date: July 5, 2016), optimizes search results when running feasibility queries. The patented technique is used in the semantic search and indexing component at the backend of Patient Network Explorer. This technology applies rules on semantic elements, mostly elements of medical terminologies, on how to link them with patient data for an improved and high-performance indexing and optimized search results.
  • "Patient recruitment system and patient recruitment method" (PCT/EP2015/059415. EU: Granted 04/2021, published in European Patent Bulletin 2021/30 on July 28, 2021. US: PCT filed 11/2016), underpins any medical EHR database infrastructure that incorporates a hybrid model of cloud-and-local server node installations at individual hospitals, as well as any method for search of patient cohort care metrics across such a platform. This allows real-time search at each individual hospital across the entire network at once, returning aggregate metrics from the entire network. This technology forms the basis of Clinerion’s Patient Network Explorer.

  • "Patient Recruitment System" (PCT/EP2017/069859. EU: Granted 04/2022, published in European Patent Bulletin 2022/16 on April 20, 2022. US: PCT filed 02/2019), covers Clinerion's ANID technology and involves the exclusive use of de-identified, unlinked patient data for patient search and identification based on the electronic medical records of patients held by hospitals, ensuring the privacy and security of patient information.

The Clinerion Technology Vision for RWD Insights

How does Clinerion see the future of real-world data insights for physician access, clinical research, and patient care? In particular, how will we enable the creation of a "full" digital patient profile – derived from EHR-based real-world data – to revoutionize obtainable insights?
