An area that may be part of what you have already described is the linking of clinical care data with clinical trial data to minimize redundant manual data entry into a clinical trial database. As we get further down the road in health care reform ("Meaningful Use" and "Health Information Exchanges"), this will be a more prominent need because there will be more data available. For the most part, our current process that way have been in capturing lab data from the hospital's HL-7 streams for study patients in Phase I studies (where the sponsor was interested in monitoring certain assays in a near-real-time fashion).
