Clinical Data Management (CDM) involves apt procedures that are followed for entering, verifying, validating & further reviewing of the gathered data during a clinical trial. The kind of data managed during clinical trials is mostly related to the safety & efficacy of the drug, device or biologic that is under study. The data that arrives from clinical research centers such as hospitals or healthcare clinics are case report forms and those that arrive from clinical laboratories are non-case report forms. In Clinical Data Management, one needs to collect & validate both these types of clinical trial data & conduct its quality assurance in order to ensure that the data is error free. The clinical research industry works in the epicenter of web-based systems as many online tools are used to manage this data. This online course provides students & professionals an overview of Oracle Clinical (OC) which is considered to be the gold standard in data management.
