Data in Clinical Research
How electronic data is streamlining clinical research.
Major advancements in technology and cutting-edge software are drastically improving and reconstructing the way research is conducted. The collection of accurate data and information is providing a new perspective on the industry. So, how can electronic data simplify the research process? Let’s break it down.
Accuracy in data
First and foremost, the collected data should be 100% accurate and consistent for future use. Along with accuracy, data should comply with protocol specifics and requirements. For instance, not meeting the protocol-specifications may exclude a patient from the final database. Innovative software combined with accurate data can produce substantial efficiencies and increased precision in clinical trials.
Maintaining an audit trail of data management activities is of vital importance. An audit trail ensures that every user can access only the allotted functions specific to that user. Collecting data on compliant software allows auditors to verify any discrepancies in the data management process.
Efficiency in the research process
Read, sign, done! Yes, it’s that easy. Utilizing software that allows anytime access to study-related data and documentation creates an effective result. Innovative technology along with accurate data is streamlining the research process, making it efficient for all parties (Sponsors, Sites, CROs, the FDA, and IRB).
