Clinical Study Data Management Systems
Clinical Study Data Management Systems (CSDMSs) support the process of managing data gathered during clinical research. Clinical research involves much more than clinical data management – for example, research-grant tracking and reporting to the sponsor and to institutional review boards (IRBs, also called Human Investigations Committees) as well as financial management. I’ll focus on the data-capture, reporting and query aspects, as these are the components that benefit from metadata.
