CDASH compliant CRF design deliverables:

     The quality of the data collection at the site can be improved by designing standard CRF. We implement the best practice and standards specified in CDASH by using standard library of CRF modules and formats specific to the therapeutic area in 5-7 business days. Also extensive review of CRF to protocol is done by the review team to make sure that the correct data fields are captured.


Development of Study Validation plan for data cleaning:

    The FP team thoroughly reviews the protocol while developing the study validation plan to ensure that all critical safety and efficacy parameters are specified. These checks are further programmed by our programmer team to raise the alert messages when the data collected is not as per the data definition. A certified programmer who also has 6 year of data management experience defines and programs all edit checks to fit the study requirements and builds the study database within tight timeframe.
