Clinical Trial Markup Language (CTML) is an open standard that was created by DFCI and Harvard Medical School. Creating CTML files in YAML format files manually was very time consuming and prone to typos and errors. We came up with the idea of a software that can create CTML files in a user friendly manner. The new CTIMS software enables users to easily create CTML files. As part of the UHN CDI Grand challenge 2022, CTIMS proposal was selected as the Prize Winner. Pugh Lab and CDI teams collaborated to create CTIMS, while taking into consideration input from multiple users and stakeholders. CTIMS follows strict UHN Security guidelines.
CTIMS is developed as an open source software with contribution from multiple institutions
Personal/Protected Health Information (PHI) is not included in CTIMS. As proprietary clinical trial information is stored in CTIMS, the application is secured by Keycloak
CTIMS works with other open source software such as cBioPortal, Matchminer, Keycloak
CTIMS is developed in a multi insitutional open source format. The core development is done by UHN. As CTIMS is open source, the software includes contributions from around the globe. CTIMS is an integral part of the PMATCH suite of initiatives and software ecosystem.
