A clinical study is not usable if the clinical data are missing or if the quality is not guaranteed.
The quality of clinical data: a first guarantee of a quality trial
Centaur Clinical defines quality data as data that is complete, accurate, precise and captured on the eCRF as close as possible to the time of its collection. Event reports must comply with deadlines specific to their severity. Requests for corrections by the eCRF data manager must be made within a reasonable time frame.
For a centre without dedicated clinical research staff, ensuring the quality of the data to be collected can be difficult. When necessary, Centaur Clinical can delegate ARCs or TECs directly on site to ensure data entry and response to correction/accuracy requests.
Data collection is optimal when the eCRF is well constructed. CC takes a cross-functional approach to prepare a concise, clear and accurate eCRF in advance.
