Getting Back On Track in Record Time: Optimizing a Visual Analytics Program and Process
It’s no surprise that clinical trials continue to generate substantial amounts of patient data from a wide variety of sources including electronic data capture, business process flow mapping and external vendor data, among many others. All this information must be collected, reviewed, cleaned, aggregated, analyzed and assimilated into reports that the multidisciplinary team, including scientists and medical personnel, use to monitor “in-motion” progress, data quality and patient safety during a given clinical trial or trials.
Advances in technology, and more specifically business intelligence and visual analytics tools and associated techniques powered by innovative platforms such as Spotfire®, are revolutionizing the management of data for clinical trials and beyond. With the ability to visualize multisource data including those previously untapped, clinical and medical personnel can achieve faster insights into the data and hone in on key areas to facilitate expedited review and decision making and thereby improve trial safety, quality and efficiency.
