The Open, Closed, and Exploding World of Research Data



Webinar Date/Time: Tue, Oct 17, 2023 10:00 AM EDT | 9:00 AM CT | 3:00 PM BST | 4:00 PM CEST

Data is growing exponentially and so are the associated challenges (i.e., privacy, quality, security, accessibility, etc.). As life science research organizations move away from multiple technology vendors that supply a myriad of infrastructures requiring costly integrations that do not deliver interoperability how can we enhance data quality, increase efficiency, and drive innovation in clinical trials?

Event Overview:

Data is growing exponentially and the impact on all areas of academic, scientific, and medical research is critical. Research data challenges can arise from various aspects, including data privacy, quality, security, accessibility, integration, sample size, ethical considerations, resource constraints, and data analysis and interpretation. Adhering to FAIR and CARE principles and updated federal mandates add new layers of complexity. Addressing these challenges requires thoughtful planning, attention to standards, and expertise in research methods and data management to ensure robust and reliable research findings.

This session will explore the intersection of open data, closed data, and discuss the benefits and challenges of open science, ethical and legal considerations related to sharing sensitive research data like PHI, key principles and best practices, and the implications for the future of scientific and life sciences research. As life science research organizations move away from multiple technology vendors that supply a myriad of infrastructures requiring costly integrations that do not deliver interoperability how can we enhance data quality, increase efficiency, and drive innovation in clinical trials?

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Differences between open data vs. closed data
  • How to implement standards like FAIR and CARE principles.
  • How to ensure security, privacy and ethics while having meaningful use.
  • The importance of standards.
  • Benefits of comprehensive and interoperable platforms to deliver flexibility, ease of use, security, and performance.

Who Should Attend:

This webinar is applicable to:

  • Clinical researchers, academic researchers, data scientists, and clinical decision teams responsible for:
    • Research data computing and planning
    • Clinical development planning and study design
    • Management of patients and measurement of clinical outcomes
    • Clinical data management, collecting and evaluating trial metrics
    • Project management of studies, process optimization, and operational excellence
