High-quality clinical data is imperative for clinical research and studies. Effective clinical data management minimizes clinical errors and helps ensure that the regulatory questions receive rapid responses, thus accelerating the speed of the drug development process. It is important to safeguard clinical data to protect patient privacy. Some of the challenges of clinical laboratories include securely managing massive amounts of data, providing accurate clinical test results, minimizing turnaround times, and improving health outcomes at minimal cost. Additionally, there are several regulations that clinical laboratories need to follow, such as FDA's 21 CFR Part 11, HIPAA, CLIA, GCP, EU GDPR etc. Laboratory informatics systems, such as a Clinical LIMS, Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), privacy engineering, operations assessment, can help address clinical data management and regulatory challenges. The webinar focuses on the importance of data privacy, discusses clinical data management challenges, and emphasizes the tools and tactics to mitigate such challenges.
Recommended attendees include laboratory directors, managers and quality managers of clinical research laboratories and biobanks.
