Clinical Trials Data Quality Improvement
Outsourced clinical trials often have incorrect or incomplete personal level data. This causes downstream problems necessitating expensive manual corrections. CTI implemented data quality enhancements to the clinical trial data, significantly reducing errors in the trial administration process, eliminating manual corrections, and improving trial reporting.
These trials provide “trip reports” frequently populated with incorrect personal level data (missing address fields, duplicated names, etc.). This causes downstream problems with the trial process such as sending drugs to the wrong destination, or inability to notify patients of new side effects, necessitating costly staff corrective actions. CTI applied Data Quality technologies to “scrub” the trip reports and dramatically improve the data quality.
