ERT Introduces Data Insights to Improve Study Efficiency and Effectiveness

Data Insights delivers advanced analytics for faster and informed action, helping to prevent trial delays.

PHILADELPHIA – December 8, 2020 – ERT, a leading global data and technology company, which minimizes risk and uncertainty in clinical trials, today announced the launch of Data Insights, its newest Trial Oversight solution. Designed to more accurately and rapidly discover variabilities in endpoint data collection and management, Data Insights empowers study teams to take proactive action to protect the validity and integrity of their data and keep their study on track and on time.

Nearly 80 percent of clinical trials experience delays, with significant ramifications for study sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), study managers and patients who could benefit from the drug or therapy in trial.Consequently, study teams spend considerable time and resources creating and managing complex systems to identify and mitigate endpoint data variability issues and prevent costly delays.

ERT’s Data Insights removes the burden of spotting data variabilities from study managers and teams through advanced diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive analytics. It features a configurable dashboard that enables trial managers to weight metrics and customize notifications and suggested actions based on data quality thresholds. Additionally, Data Insights provides a centralized and detailed view of ERT’s clinical and operational data across portfolios and individual studies, allows for granular data review and generates issue-specific reports with study, site and metric-specific details. The resulting focus on high-value activity and shared insight helps to reduce and target remediation effort, improve team decision-making and increase trust in data quality and compliance overall.

Data Insights delivers advanced analytics for faster and informed action, helping to prevent trial delays.

“Data variability often requires study teams invest significant time and effort to uncover and understand problematic data and contributes to the reality that so few clinical studies end on time,” said Dr. Otis Johnson, vice president of Trial Oversight. “Data Insights serves as an early indicator system, identifying studies at greater compliance or quality risk and highlighting the specific issue so our customers and users can spend less time investigating problems and more time solving them.”

In addition to configurable tracking and event notification, Data Insights customers and users receive 24/7 Multilingual Customer Care and the ability to sort data into portfolio, study and site-specific views. Data Insights is part of ERT’s robust collection of Data Analytics offerings, including ERT’s Business Intelligence Suite and Data Exchange.
