Do you want to have better clinical trial oversight, faster study execution and improve study quality? Join this webinar to learn 5 lessons to master clinical data aggregation, transformation, cleaning and analytics to reduce cost, risk and time.

Recent trends in clinical trials – including the increasing availability of clinical, operational and real world data streams – offer the opportunity to gain better insight over clinical R&D as never before, but poses interesting challenges with data aggregation, harmonization and collaboration. To take advantage of growing clinical data streams requires new capabilities to automate electronic data capture (EDC), clinical data management and operational analytics business processes using simplified technology platforms.

Today, taking clinical trial data from EDC to Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM) is time consuming, resource intensive and complex. More often than desired, clinical data resides in silos across study teams, data management groups, statistical analysis and clinical operations. This makes optimizing clinical data flow challenging, if not impossible, and creates operational inefficiencies that will simply not scale to meet the needs of key business stakeholders planning for the future.

The good news is that there are innovative ways to overcome this complex challenge.
