Model Subset Diagrams & Reports

Model Subset Diagrams & Reports

The BRIDG model has over 300 classes and it becomes challenging to comprehend the entire model in one diagram. Therefore the BRIDG modeling team has created smaller diagrams which are subsets of the BRIDG model to make it more digestible and user-friendly. Note that some classes show up in more than one diagram. Users are encouraged to browse the different kinds of diagrams and reports to find the ones that best fit their requirements. With each release, it is possible that more diagrams will be created. Each diagram includes a link to download an associated diagram report.

Clinical Research Data Exchange Groupings
The BRIDG model supports a majority of the semantics of clinical research. Here are some representative data exchange scenarios supported by BRIDG. These diagrams are based on requirements that were brought to the BRIDG project for harmonization. Since CDISC is an established data exchange standard for clinical research, a subgroup of diagrams relevant to CDISC is highlighted.

CDISC Diagrams

Project-Based Groupings
The scope of the diagrams in this section corresponds with the semantics of several projects that have been harmonized with BRIDG. These project-based diagrams allow the project teams to focus on just their semantics as represent in the BRIDG model Many of diagrams showing only the classes, attributes and associations to which a given project’s concepts map, hiding all classes, attributes and associations not used in that project’s mappings.

Topic-Based Groupings
The diagrams in this section focus the user’s attention on small sets of related classes, attributes and associations.

Comprehensive Model Spreadsheet
The BRIDG model is made up of over 300 classes and to make it easier to search, all class and attribute definitions have been exported to a single spreadsheet. This shows all classes and attributes from the latest official release of BRIDG.
