Standards are essential for the sharing, flexibility and reuse of data. With data standards being released as often as they are today, it is essential for CROs, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to keep up-to-date with regulations
Burlington, MA (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
Formedix, the clinical trial automation software and consultancy services provider, which has an office in Massachusetts, will be exhibiting at Booth #1846 at the DIA 49th Annual Meeting 2013, on June 23-27, where this year’s theme is ‘Advancing Therapeutic Innovation and Regulatory Sciences.’ In keeping with this year’s conference topics of focus, Formedix is offering a complimentary comprehensive Standards Health Check to all attendees, looking at their end-to-end clinical trials and standards compliance.
In the past five years, there has been a significant rise in the number of new standards released - between 2007 and 2009, 22 new standards were released and this more than doubled between 2010 and 2012, with 45 new external standards coming from CDISC, TransCelerate and FDA, to name just a few. So it comes at a perfect time for the CDISC experts to offer this Standards Health Check to delegates at this event.
Formedix also recently launched a series of complimentary learning webinars focusing on data standards and the everyday issues affecting those within the clinical trial industry including Clinical Data Managers, Standards Directors and Biostatisticians. This year, topics covered have included ‘Four Secrets to Using CDISC’ (a partner webinar with Perceptive Informatics), ‘Discover Define-XML’ and ‘How to Utilize CDASH in Multi-vendor EDC systems.’
Formedix CEO Mark Wheeldon discusses these ever-changing standards saying, “Standards are essential for the sharing, flexibility and reuse of data. With data standards being released as often as they are today, it is essential for CROs, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to keep up-to-date with regulations. Formedix suggests a Standards Health Check to understand how compliant you are, a standards balance sheet service to bring you up-to-date and an ongoing aftercare service ensuring your study designs/standards are always current.”
He also adds, “We are delighted to be able to offer a questionnaire style Standards Health Check to help us analyze your “symptoms”, look at where you are performing well with data standards but also to highlight or diagnose where we can step in and offer advice or a remedy going forward to improve the process. We have heard from a number of companies who are struggling to keep up and have developed many solutions and tools to help.”
Formedix is pre-booking appointments to meet its experts for a standards health diagnosis at Booth #1846 for attendees who have completed the Standards Health Check form. The Formedix CDISC experts can offer advice on how manual, expensive and labor intensive tasks can be removed from study set-up, EDC build, validation and submission processes.
