Centralized Clinical Data


Why Centralize Your Clinical Data?

A centralized clinical data strategy keeps clinical data – including biostatistics, programming, data management and medical writing – with one specialized CRO vendor. This results in standardization, higher quality, improved efficiency and considerable cost savings.

Standardization & Quality

  • Consistent use of data formats (typically CDISC compliant), coding dictionaries, macros
  • Sponsor specific global libraries
  • Due-diligence ready datasets
  • Consistency in assigned team (project manager, lead statistician, lead data manager, lead programmer)
  • Uniform traceability of data

Improved Efficiency

  • Re-use of existing CRF pages to save on database build and statistical programming costs
  • Utilization of one set of technologies so CRAs and Investigators benefit from familiarity
  • Better integration of studies across all phases with common assessment methods
  • Centralized portal for viewing study data or metadata

Considerable Cost Savings

  • One-time fee for setup of global libraries, programming macros and validation checks
  • Volume discounts for EDC licensing fees and centralized hosting
  • Hour/Daily rates available or lower FTE monthly rates
  • Estimated cost savings of between 20-40% for full biometrics package
