The Society for Clinical Data Management has awarded its annual Data Driven Innovation Award to Phase Forward for developing a technology that increased external data loading rates 100-fold.
The Data Driven Innovation Award recognizes the year’s best advancement in CDM technology or service resulting from a vendor-sponsor partnership.
“SCDM was thrilled with the quantity and quality of entries in the third annual Data Driven Innovation Award,” said Brenda Hoeper, conference co-chair. “We feel privileged to recognize innovations in the CDM discipline that have demonstrated evidence of adding value to the clinical trial process.”
In implementing electronic data capture at client Merck & Co., Phase Forward needed to develop a faster, more accurate data loader to avoid project delays. The resulting solution, called Direct Data Loader, increased the data loading from an estimated 1,000 records per hour to 100,000 and led to an 80% drop in errors.
