With time, clinical trials are becoming more intricate and convergence of forces—including precise value differentiation, increasing protocol complexity, and more emphasis on patient experience—is accelerating this intricacy. Clinical electronic data capture systems and processes have evolved to include adaptive designs, DCTs (decentralized clinical trials), increased data volume and precision, and an ever-expanding array of data sources.
These industry and environmental changes have led to significant clinical data capture and management challenges because CDM (clinical data management)—which includes how data is locked, cleaned, and reviewed—processes and technologies haven’t progressed at the same breakneck speed.
Why Modernize Clinical Electronic Data Capture Processes
In addition, technology ecosystems are typically built with a combination of disparate tools that are from different vendors or homegrown, and the individual components don’t have much interoperability. As a result, clinical trial data management is carried out with processes and tools that aren’t able to adapt and evolve at the pace needed to support the realities of the modern clinical trial. In addition, since data first began to be electronically gathered using eCRFs (electronic Case Report Forms), data acquisition landscape has substantially evolved.
Now is the time for advancement in clinical data management. It’s currently being modernized by unifying workflows and data on a cloud-based platform. This is transforming clinical data management to be interoperable, intelligent, flexible, and scalable with a variety of 3rd party systems, so that it can maintain drug development in the future.
That future comprises more decentralized study designs where data is captured directly from patients irrespective of location, drugs are shipped to patients, and visits are monitored remotely.
By taking advantage of a unified clinical data management platform, CROs and sponsors can accomplish greater efficiencies that result in automated data standardization, quicker study closeouts, and the development of in-depth views of patient data that aren’t easily accomplished using traditional clinical data capture and management processes.
