Clinical Data Aggregation Working Group
We are pleased to announce that the Clinical Data Aggregation Working Group Virtual Summit has been scheduled for January 15, 2014. Beginning with the Virtual Summit, the working group will support a collaboration of like-minded individuals from pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and CROs that have come together specifically for the purpose of defining, developing and deploying reusable information management tools that automate the transformation of clinical data (current and legacy) and unlock the value within.
The Clinical Data Aggregation Working Group will address key data management challenges that include: incompatible systems between collaborating organizations, highly manual data transformation processes, and the lack of data standardization and its impact on cost, quality and efficiency. As part of our efforts, we will outline solutions in the following key areas: (a) aggregating data from multiple sources; (b) mapping disparate data to a uniform, consistent data structure; (c) cleansing and validating data to ensure a reliable basis of analysis; and (d) delivering accurate predictive and prescriptive analysis.
Goals and Objectives
The goals are to enable higher quality clinical information, faster and at less cost. A high-level overview the Clinical Data Aggregation Working Group, including its goals and objectives, can be downloaded here.
