What Errors Are Lurking in Your Trial Data?

Focused on:

  • Trial Data
  • Data Management

  • I C H E6

Date: 12 July


Time: 12PM London

Traditional data monitoring methods will only help you identify the risks you know. What about the ones you can’t anticipate?

Your organisation is spending time, money, and resources to ensure trial data quality but what you may find is that current methods can delay risk identification by months, if at all, and it requires your team to know all the potential errors, which is next to impossible.

With traditional data monitoring methods:

  • Up to ~80% of edit checks never fire
  • Many edit checks that DO fire are closed without the site fixing the problem
  • Many errors are never detected and add risk to drug submissions

With the advancement of machine learning, there is a much more effective way. Through technology, you can uncover data anomalies you could never anticipate while improving productivity.

Join us for ‘What Errors Are Lurking in Your Trial Data’, where we’ll present a modern approach to data quality monitoring that helps you take control of your trial data and helps you comply with ICH E6 (R2).
