Goal is to enhance access to clinical trials data by promoting data sharing and transparency

On July 19 a new global data-sharing and analytics platform called Vivli was unveiled. The nonprofit group’s mission is to promote, coordinate and facilitate scientific sharing and reuse of clinical research data.

Vivli evolved from a project of the Multi-Regional Clinical Trials Center of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard (MRCT Center) to enhance access to clinical trials data by promoting data sharing and transparency. In 2013, the MRCT Center and a diverse group of global stakeholders embarked on a mission to define, design and launch a solution for global clinical trial data sharing. 

Vivli said it would act as a neutral broker between data contributor, data user and the wider data-sharing community. It will harmonize the governance, policy and processes to make sharing data easier. The Vivli platform includes an independent data repository, in-depth search engine and a cloud-based, secure analytics platform. The platform is built as an application within the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

Vivli features data from completed interventional studies in a number of therapeutic areas for which anonymized individual patient data are available. 

Rebecca Li, Ph.D., is the executive director of Vivli. Previously she was the executive director of the MRCT Center of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard for over five years and remains a senior advisor at the center.
