Data Processing Solutions and Integration


The 4th PHUSE SDE Netherlands focussed the attention on the unsung heroes of clinical research and healthcare: data processing solutions. This landscape has never been more turbulent than today; and the choice of solutions is greater than ever. This poses many questions: off-the-shelf or bespoke? All-in-one or smaller modules? Global vendor or local startup? Then there are the challenges that arise in integrating solutions for data streams, such as EDC, wearables, mobile technology, e-diaries and imaging devices, into a single computing environment, where they can be structured and analysed. Should we adopt new data analysis tools and if so, how do we combine these with existing packages technically and procedurally?
