As a digital repository for data collection instruments in a Clinical Data Management System (CDMS), a global library (GL) is used to streamline the database build process by increasing quality, time savings, and cost efficiencies.
To streamline the exchange of clinical and nonclinical research data and ensure uniformity across studies submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC), has developed data exchange standards to streamline clinical research and enable connections to healthcare.
The top priority of a Clinical Research Organization (CRO) is to help a sponsor conduct a successful clinical trial. That success is measured in data quality, process efficiency, and cost effectiveness.
Clinical trials leverage the expertise of people in a wide variety of roles — researchers, project managers, clinical data managers, etc. One of the positions with which people may be less familiar is that of the clinical research associate (CRA).
