Our Approach to Clinical Data Management

As top-performing clinical data management vendors, MCRA understands that the results of any clinical study are only as good as the data that supports those results and is committed to providing excellent data management services that have been tailored to each of our clients. To ensure realization of this commitment. MCRA's data management department has partnered with several cloud-based clinical data management solutions which allows us to use a wide array of systems and tools to ensure that each study is matched with the best set of tools based on the needs of that individual study. 

The data management team prides themselves in providing highly personalized services with each solution being developed with the unique needs of the study in mind. Our extremely personable team is always available to our clients and study sites to ensure that the solutions being built are exactly what is needed for a given study and that all parties are comfortable in the use of these systems. Highlights of these systems include:

  • Real-time access to the clinical data for clinical sites, sponsors and members of the CRO 
  • 24/7 server monitoring to ensure accessibility, security and performance
  • API interfaces with other clinical trial management systems and data analysis programs
