Drug discovery and clinical trials are the lifeblood of Health and Life Sciences companies and Contract Research Organizations (CROs) are no exception. Harmonized, high quality information related to drug discovery, clinical trials operations, medical monitoring and commercialization of drugs is critical to CROs like Quintiles. Quintiles leverages a tailored, multi-domain MDM platform to gain a holistic view of business-critical entities such as investigators, research facilities, clinical studies, study sites, and subjects. This enables optimum selection of investigators for a given trial, improved patient recruitment and site startup, management of non-performing sites, and risk-based monitoring of active studies. An innovative data governance program was essential to improve data quality via successfully partnering with business. In this session, the benefits of a multi-domain MDM architecture and lessons learned in our implementation will be examined via the following topics:

  • Leveraging architectural choices that accelerate the realization of benefits from MDM adoption
  • Architecting closed-loop interfaces with Systems of Record to ensure that MDM continuously stays in sync
  • Dovetailing MDM & Data Quality initiatives to achieve dramatic information harmonization results
