Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) October 19, 2006
TrialStat Corporation, a clinical data management on demand company, continues its ongoing commitment to informing the industry of important data management trends with Dr. Khaled El Emam, TrialStat’s Chief Scientist, scheduled to discuss the integration, ethical and privacy challenges of managing patient records in electronic data systems at the 2nd Annual Clinical Trials in Canada conference on October 23 in Toronto.
Combining ClinicalAnalytics (CA) 4.0™, the company’s web-based electronic data capture (EDC) platform, and a suite of professional data management services, TrialStat provides pharmaceutical and biotechnology, contract research organizations (CROs) and academic institutions a secure, scaleable and rapidly deployable clinical data management on demand solution. Launched earlier this month, the latest version of CA 4.0 provides a suite of new features that further enhance the quality, accuracy and security of customers’ clinical trial data, while automating its analysis and management.
“CROs are under immense pressure to create a secure operating environment to manage sensitive patient data electronically from multiple jurisdictions with often different regulatory requirements,” said Dr. El Emam. “As CROs and sponsors move more towards automating their clinical trial processes through EDC, they need assurance that all relevant regulations are followed. This presentation will highlight important questions for CROs and sponsors to ask.”
Details of Dr. El Emam presentation are:
- Topic: Electronic Data System and Electronic Application – Regulatory and Privacy Considerations in Patient Record Databases Sent to Multiple Jurisdictions.
- When: October 23, 2006 – 11:45pm (EST)
- Where: The Old Mill Inn – 21 Old Mill Road, Toronto, Ontario
