Webinar: Real-time Insights and Analytics
Written by Cmed
What Can Real-time Insights and Analytics Achieve for Your Trials?
New webinar hosted by Xtalks will demonstrate live the power of real-time clinical data insights and analytics, and what this means for clinical trial conduct and for clinical trial management activities.
The live session takes place on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, featuring speakers from Cmed, including Stephanie Langouet, Vice President of Data & Analytics, and Jon Carter, Product Manager.
Key topics will include:
- How is data utilized to support the effective management of clinical trials?
- How can data be reviewed expediently and have a purpose for the reviewer?
- Do we get too close to the data which stops us identifying potential issues?
Study delays due to growing clinical trial complexity and increasing volumes of data are being experienced more and more often by the clinical research industry. This means that sponsors and their development partners must look to more efficiently manage the performance of their clinical trials, and ensure they employ systems and processes to support faster clinical trial delivery and better decision making.
Optimizing the capture and management of clinical trial data is now more important than ever in ensuring the success of any clinical trial. Consequently, the choice of software used for data capture plays a central role in ensuring the quality, accuracy and reliability of data. This software should ideally not just support the optimal collection of data but also proper management of the data. Sponsors and their partners, therefore, need a solution that helps them integrate and exchange clinical trial data in a way that gives them real-time actionable views of the data.
Managing large amounts of data is one of the many challenges of clinical trials. Data reside in multiple systems and databases including EDC/CDMS, CTMS, safety databases and others, and without a centralized approach, such databases can also be spread across multiple vendors and countries. Data managers and clinical staff need to become progressively polyvalent and proficient at managing data complexity. But these factors also increase the pressure on data managers trying to keep database locks on time and Statisticians to provide earlier results.
A number of “eClinical” technologies are emerging with many new functionalities to improve and simplify the overall architecture of clinical trial data collection, management and analysis. These advancements in technology are already having a positive impact throughout the clinical and data management process by enhancing the quality and completeness of the data, and increasing the speed and efficiency of its capture and management. However, despite helping to speed some aspects of the trial process, the use of these different technologies often present significant challenges regarding efficient integrations and cross-platform functionality. To address these challenges, a single system approach is required that can translate large volumes of any data and visualize in a clear and insightful way. Both these attributes help speed key development decisions.
The advent of cloud based technology is already proving to be well-suited to these challenges and provides the scalability and flexibility that is not available through the older traditional software models. Cloud-based technology, of course, is not new. But encapsia, Cmed’s clinical data suite of apps designed for data capture and clinical trial management leading to effective reporting, is the first cloud-hosted clinical data suite that has been specifically designed to take full advantage of being cloud hosted, and offers the solutions needed to address the current clinical and data management challenges.
