Press Release from Copenhagen, Denmark – 16th October 2019

S-cubed is pleased to announce the launch of the A3 Community MDR provided free for the benefit of the CDISC user community. The A3 Community MDR allows users to browse and search the complete history of the CDISC Controlled Terminology. Providing clear visibility of all the versions since 2007, along with the changes that have been made, gives users a unique perspective of the CDISC Terminology. You can find full details of the Community MDR and how to register here: https://www.s-cubed-global.com/products/a3-community-mdr

State of the Art MDR

Managing Director, Scott McGregor, ‘S-cubed has been a supporter of CDISC for over 10 years. In that time, we have delivered training courses, as official CDISC trainers, been members of the European CDISC Coordinating Committee (E3C) and have supported many companies with their implementation and use of the CDISC Standards. The A3 Community MDR is an opportunity for us to give something back to CDISC and support everyone who uses CDISC Terminology via our state of the art MDR. Through this, we hope to promote wider adoption of the standards and encourage those who are not members to join the CDISC organisation.’

MDR Freely Available

Dave Iberson-Hurst, Director of A3, ‘When we started working on the MDR, we always knew a version that was freely available to the community would be important. CDISC Terminology is large and, of course, it is updated regularly. Keeping track of those changes can be a challenge. Our vision is to make using the CDISC standards easier, to move away from using excel spreadsheets, and to link up information in order to remove data silos. For example, we have not only loaded the terminology but some of the change instruction examples to show the links across the versions, aiding users to better understand changes such as the now famous BUN mystery. We will also add features for the benefit of the community in the future.’

The A3 Community MDR is being officially launched at the CDISC Interchange in San Diego. Attendees can meet Adam de Neergaard, S-cubed Business Development Director, see a demonstration, and sign up for the system via the S-cubed website: https://www.s-cubed-global.com/products/a3-community-mdr. We welcome any feedback from the user community and this can be sent to the A3 Community email provided when you register as a user.
