Data Management


Exceptional data management is the heart of the ProgramAccelerate® portion of our Trusted Process.  Using the power of the latest technologies and the expertise honed from years of clinical data experience, the database is ready, accurately populated, and locked in an expeditious manner—with verification and validation procedures that ensure quality control every step of the way. This processing is done in synchronization with the clinical team, utilizing the information provided from the trial to ensure efficient processes are employed, regardless of capture method, from the first patient in through to database lock. INC Research is experienced in delivering data studies in EDC, paper and fax modalities globally.


Electronic Data Capture EDC


INC Research has the ability to work with a variety of Electronic Data Capture (EDC) tools and make them work effectively to provide customers the solution that best suits their project needs.  We utilize three leading EDC platforms - Medidata Rave, Oracle Clinical On-Site and Phase Forward’s Inform products.  Our ability to design, build and deliver high quality databases in all three platforms enables our team to deliver the right EDC solution for every trial.

To compete in today's changing global drug and device development environment, companies must collect and distribute data faster than ever before. INC Research helps its customers harness the power of EDC. Our foundational EDC functionality is based on the leading technology platforms to provide our customers with a broad spectrum of EDC options that suit their needs. We have the ability to manage EDC studies to help our customers take advantage of the efficiencies available through this technology - improved access to data, less paper, reduced cycle time, increased productivity and improved relationships with customers, vendors and other partners.




The biostatistics team at INC Research has a depth of experience with the FDA and the EMEA, which means our teams provide customers with solid guidance on building a statistical plan that will meet regulatory and safety requirements. We provide support for independent Drug Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMB) and a full range of related services. Our biostatisticians are heavily involved in the PlanActivation® stage of our Trusted Process, so protocol and project development are grounded in sound, advanced statistical methodology.  As part of a project team, our biostatisticians can provide a critical eye for any data or data handling issues that need to be resolved for analysis. Our experts can lend key data oversight throughout a trial.

We have the ability to manage IVRS/IWRS studies to help our customers take advantage of the efficiencies available through this technology.


Other services


Sponsors have been challenged to review their approach to key functional areas of clinical research that are not core to their clinical development business in an effort to dramatically improve efficiency.  INC Research's Functional Service Provider (FSP) model has proven to be an effective tool for this purpose and can have the effect of reduced costs (30-40% direct cost savings on top of larger indirect cost savings), faster cycle times and improved quality. 

The FSP model targets the separation of core/non-core capabilities within the sponsored organization.  INC Research's FSP services include:
  • Biostatistics
  • Data Management
  • Medical Writing
  • Regulatory Document (eTMF) Processing
  • Safety
  • Site Contract Management
  • Site Payment Administration
INC Research has deployed our functional expertise across multiple studies in programs, therapeutic areas and pipelines and passes the efficiencies gained from industrializing these functions on to its FSP partners.

Our ability to work within a sponsor's processes and systems or to deliver new processes to the sponsor allows us to act as the sole subject matter expert for a particular function.  INC Research uses this functional expertise to become a subject matter expert for a particular function.  INC Research uses this functional expertise to drive a continuous process improvement approach into the sponsor's current operations. 

The end result of implementing a FSP approach is greater predictability and more consistent delivery of services across all protocols.  INC Research currently operates global FSP hubs in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America and can become your functional expert while your in-house teams focus on the science and strategy of executing a successful clinical trial.
