Session 3
Monday, September 14, 2020: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET

As the types and volume of data sources increase, data management converges with clinical operations, and the use of technology becomes more prevalent, the need for data scientists and data science skill sets increases. There is buzz around how machine learning and artificial intelligence can be applied to the practice of data management and how that may transform the function to data sciences.We may be on a journey from data management to data science, but the path is not necessarily mapped out. What exactly does this mean for data management? What is the ideal definition of a data scientist, and does that apply to data management? It’s difficult to say where the role of DM is going and how we will get there, but most agree that change is already underway. This panel will bring together industry leaders to discuss the roles of the Clinical Data Manager and Clinical Data Scientist and to address the shift as data managers acquire new skills, adopt new technologies and employ new methods of working. Panelists will examine how they see the role of DM evolving, where the challenges are and what success looks like…

Session 13
Tuesday, September 15, 2020: 10:15 AM – 11:15 AM ET

According to a recent Tufts survey, “external” or non-EDC data makes up over 60% of trial data. Times from last patient last visit (LPLV) to database lock (DB) are increasing, and one hypothesis says it’s tied to the amount of external data. In addition, the number of data sources is going up across trials. Biomarkers in particular are increasingly common and often mean varying data formats from different vendors. All of these trends contribute to an increased demand for efficient tools for data review and analysis. Yet in many cases, data review and reconciliation workflows remain relatively unchanged – relying heavily on Excel and the repetition of manual processes. This session will explore new efficient workflows for data reconciliation incorporating process improvements and new technologies. Experts across functions will share how things have changed and how tech tools like data workbenches are enabling incremental data review processes, with real-time reviews of eCRF and external data. Attendees will hear from leaders within data management, monitoring and programming as they provide viewpoints of the case studies that are disrupting data management such as automated data reconciliation, mapping/transformation and query prediction. The reality of trials today means a deluge of complex and varied data – learn how the industry is using tech to adapt traditional workflows, automate manual processes, and gain efficiencies on the path to database lock.

Session 29
Wednesday, September 16, 2020: 10:15 AM – 11:15 AM ET

The CDISC organization has three ongoing projects that when final, will impact Data Management in a significant way. Do you know what they are and how they could impact your day to day operations? Come join our session and learn what they are and hear the latest updates.

  • CDASH CRF Library Project – For the first time the team will designing CRFs (based ona specific SDTM version) that will be machine readable and made available to the public.
  • CDASH SAE 2.0 – The team is updating and developing data standards for SAE reporting while ensuring alignment with CDASH and SDTM for electronic submissions. It’s anticipated that up to 15 new variables across CDASH/SDTM will need to be created. 
  • CDISC 360 – This is one of the most ambitious projects to be undertaken by CDISC. End to end automation of standards from data collection (CDASH) to SDTM to ADaM to analysis output (tables, listings and figures).

Take advantage of this unique opportunity and explore how data standards are evolving from team members working on these projects.
