Prelude Commits to Excellence in Data Management
By Editorial Team on July 21, 2018
Clients trust Prelude’s expertise in helping them with their electronic data capture (EDC) and data management needs. This trust has been honed through years of dedication to providing the gold-standard in EDC functionality. Prelude EDC is an all-in-one comprehensive platform that provides not only EDC, but also Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) and Clinical Data Management System (CDMS) functionality.
Now, Prelude is taking our excellence in Data Management to the next level by committing to obtain recognition from the Society of Clinical Data Management as an industry partner in Data Management Excellence. Obtaining this designation is no easy feat. At least 25% of all personnel or a minimum of 10 employees engaged in data management must be Certified Clinical Data Managers (CCDM). The CCDM certification exam is comprehensive and rigorous. The passing rate is around 55% of those who take the exam. Currently, there are less than 20 industry partners. Achieving it truly represents excellence in data management.
Prelude is committed to obtaining the SCDM CCDM Data Management Industry Partner status in the next 6 months.
Richard Tieken, CEO at Prelude said, “Showing our clients that they are dealing with only the best and most qualified company is as important to us as making sure our Client’s data is clean and safe. Becoming an industry partner is a natural step in letting our Clients know how committed we are to ensuring excellence in our software system and in their data.”
About half of Prelude’s staff is directly engaged in data management functions which include project management and building of studies. All project managers currently meet the qualifications to take the certification exam and most of them have already been approved to take it.
