Abstract: Clinical research and pathology laboratories need to expedite research in order to provide better, faster and innovative treatments to patients. To achieve this objective, efficient clinical data management solutions are required that can minimize the time taken for patient care biobanking, and for drug research—including development and commercialization. There are several challenges associated with clinical data management. The primary challenge is heterogeneity and volume of data. Heterogeneous, large-volume data may be largely attributed to the advent of high-throughput methods for genome interrogation such as microarrays and next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, being integrated with patient care....
