RTRN Data Management (DM) supports research using practices designed to improve data quality and promote efficiency. We provide expertise in all areas of data management, from study start to completion, meeting best practices and ensuring data integrity.

The data manager uses a methodical approach to translate a research concept into a concrete method of collecting, organizing and verifying data to promote accurate reporting and data analysis. Data Managers work closely with each study team to develop a system that integrates well with research practices and effectively manages the data. We create study-specific data collection instruments as electronic Case Report Forms (CRFs), and use a web-based application with built in security features for the research database.

Throughout the life of the project, we can provide the necessary services and expertise to help manage and report data, providing clean data sets as needed. The Data Management also works collaboratively with other RTRN units in order to supply researchers with comprehensive services that can streamline, and coordinate the many facets of a clinical research project

Through frequent coordination with project teams, DCC provides a seamless flow of data and a constant level of communication to ensure that projects meet deadlines and milestones, and keep clinical trials on track for timely conclusion. Our data management teams fully understand and comply with Good Clinical Data Management Practice (GCDMP) and Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) standards.

We aim to:
• build a strong, versatile and accessible Clinical Data Management core of faculty and staff supporting Clinical and translational research at RTRN.
