We have a busy year ahead of us promoting our key staff, demonstrating our services, and software out on the road. We would love to meet our clients and new faces on our travels. Make sure you get in touch with us by contacting us here and we look forward to meeting you soon!

PhUSE US Connect Baltimore 24 – 27 February

We will be exhibiting and presenting at the second US Connect in Baltimore. We are looking forward to meeting attendees and sharing our expertise, advice, and innovative software solutions with you. You can read full details of our presentations here:

Tuesday 26th February

Dave Iberson-Hurst is presenting in the Standards Implementation Stream at 12:00pm in Harbor E. His presentation, Removing Silos: Placing Data at the Centre, focuses on the following:

“The industry has long talked about ‘end-to-end’ as a way of improving processes within research, but the industry is bedevilled by silos and standards that are hard to use. This presentation will describe the progress made in moving towards a world where silos are broken down, standards are easier to deploy, we place the data at the centre of our work and move towards a world where automation becomes reality.”

The presentation will quickly outline the vision and then describe the tangible progress made including:

  • Improved version control;
  • The visibility of the impact of change;
  • The creation of CRFs;
  • The ability to build studies;
  • The automated creation of annotated CRFs;
  • The automated creation of a consistent and aligned define.xml.

The longer-term vision will then be discussed including analysis, AdaM and TLFs as well as the link to EHRs as iterations in capability take us towards the end-to-end goal.

Wednesday 27th February

Johannes Ulander is presenting the A3 Software in the Software Demonstrations Stream at 11:00am in Harbor B. His session, Managing Complexity Towards Submission will focus on the following:

“When making a submission to the FDA or PMDA the creation of the individual deliverables such as the annotated CRF, the SDTM datasets and the define-xml are usually not so complex in themselves. What makes things complicated is keeping everything synchronised and maintaining the traceability between all deliverables in all the included studies. As data might be collected slightly different in the studies, they might also need different representation in the standards, which makes the documentation process heavy as you will need to explain what you have done and why you did it, especially if you are not able to conform to the standards. This presentation will focus on a tool built to help companies be consistent in how standards are implemented and automate the process of creating annotated CRFs and define-xml, even if changes are applied to how the data is collected during the study conduct.”

Do come along to the booth, meet Dave, Johannes, Adam de Neergaard our new Director of Business Development, and AJ de Montjoie, if you want to learn more about S-cubed and the services we provide.
