Clinical Data Management Services

Driving decision-making and mitigating risks through timely access to accurate data

Clinical research data is the final product of your study. It determines whether your study’s primary and secondary endpoints have been achieved and supports the regulatory approval of your investigational product for commercialization and distribution. It is crucial to the success of your study that your data are accurately generated, analyzed, and managed by an expert data management team.

Accurate data collection and robust clinical data management will:

Ensure that the Study Protocol is faithfully translated into data endpoints

Allow for proactive and informed decision-making throughout the lifecycle of the study

Increase the trust of regulators, publishers and investors in your data

Do you know what data collection platform is most suitable for the scope and budget of your study?

These objectives can only be achieved if the data is collected in the appropriate format, is well organized and properly annotated. This is why the development of a clear and detailed Data Management Plan is essential to collect, clean and organize data with efficiency and integrity.

All of our data management software meets the industry’s highest standards and is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. Small study with a tight budget? We can still use paper CRFs!

Training and information regarding study conduct and procedures will be provided to all parties during the study kick-off meeting. At this time, our team of biostatisticians and statistical programmers will introduce potential study designs and develop the Data Management Lifecycle Plan. This plan will outline all essential activities pertaining to data collection, maintenance, usage, and archival throughout the duration of your research program. The purpose of the Data Management Plan is to ensure efficient data collection, organization, and annotation, all of which are critical for achieving the objectives of your study. The development of this plan will also prevent any delays that may affect the efficiency of your research program, either due to unclear documentation, data reformatting, or organizational issues.

Our data management procedures are fully compliant with the Clinical Data Acquisition Standards Harmonization (CDASH) and Good Clinical Data Management Practices (GCDMP). ethica CRO is a Gold Member of the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC).
