3rd Annual Data Management in Clinical Trials
Vienna, Austria, 19–20 February 2014
Data management in clinical trials is changing rapidly, moving towards eClinical Trials. eSource data are gaining in importance and primary care data, as well as hospital data, are being used to support patient recruitment and data collection. Here, the two EU projects TRANSFoRm and EHR4CR offer software solutions. Risk-based and remote monitoring is complementing the data collection process. Increasingly operational data are collected in addition to clinical data to improve quality control and trial supervision. But the most important aspect is the comprehensive implementation of standards. Here, the conference provided strategies to deal with the introduction of standardization, especially for the integration of diverse data sources into the clinical trials process.
