Empowering Transformation Through Technology

From Clinical Data Management to Clinical Data Science

Amidst constant dynamic changes in clinical trials, the paradigm of traditional clinical data management, from technology to processes, is quickly shifting to an insight-driven, risk-based clinical data science approach.

Clinical data management has traditionally been responsible for clinical trial integrity, from collection to delivery for statistical analysis in support of regulatory activities. It ensures the accessibility, accuracy, and security of data, focusing on its organization, maintenance, integrity, and compliance with regulatory standards



Evolution of AI in Healthcare and Clinical Research

If asked about the origins of artificial intelligence (AI), what comes to mind? For many, sentient robots or non-human entities from science fiction books and films are the embodiment of AI. Think of Maria in Metropolis (1927), HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), C3PO in Star Wars (1977), and Terminator (1984), to name but a few. For others, especially given the amount of news coverage about large language models (LLMs) at the moment, ChatGPT will immediately spring to mind.
