Clinical data management tool is employed in clinical research for managing the data of a clinical trial. Data management is a process of collection, integration, and management of subject data in compliance with regulatory standards. Clinical data management is a fundamental phase in clinical research leading to the generation of high-quality, reliable, and statistically comprehensive data to reduce time duration from drug development to marketing. The clinical data is captured in a paper or electronic data capture format. Pharma companies, contract research organizations, and IT companies are involved in CDM activities. Data is collected from multiple sources and stored in a patient-centric fashion in a data repository commonly known as clinical data repository.

The major goal of CDM is to assure that the data support deductions drawn from the research to protect public health and trust in marketed therapeutics. Outsourcing of clinical data management to IT service providers is done by the organizations to focus on core competencies of clinical research and pharmaceuticals, reduction in operational expenditure, and investment in research and development activities.

Rising number of clinical trials drives the clinical data management market

Advantages of web-based data collection tools such as reduced time and ease in data entry, low cost, flexibility in format, and the ability to capture additional response-set information drive the clinical data management market. Additionally, high levels of productivity and efficiency offered by clinical data management are expected to redefine the traditional data management process by the companies thereby augmenting the clinical data management market growth. Also, increase in research and development expenditure of clinical research and life science industries coupled with increasing number of clinical trials is a factor contributing to the growth of clinical data management market.
