25 YEARS WITH SCDM
Data Management has come a long way from where we were when SCDM started 25 years ago.
Remember 3-part NCR CRFs?
Remember waiting for those query results to be faxed back?
Gone are the days where we needed to wait for weeks to see the data, we are now seeing it in real time, directly from mobile health devices and other e-source platforms. Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and New Technologies are hot topics, and Electronic Data Capture is now the norm for data collection.
Looking ahead to the next 25 years and beyond, SCDM thrives to remain at the forefront of the continuously changing DM world by providing educational opportunities, driving industry and regulatory standards of best practice within CDM and creating an environment for internal and external exchange of information, communication and experience.
For many more years to come!
