More About Data Management

Clinical data management is a critical phase in the trial process. Data is generated throughout all trial stages from inception to completion, and effective management of these data allows for the generation of high quality, reliable and statistically sound conclusions. Efficient data handling can lead to results being reported faster; meaning beneficial interventions can reach the public, and harmful interventions can be halted, more quickly. Data management doesn’t just cover validation, discrepancy management, extraction and coding, it also encompasses the processes of designing both trial documents and the database itself. These are important aspects of data management as their implementation can ensure complete datasets are collected from the participant with minimal discrepancies less need to go chasing data.
