Webinar: Modernizing Clinical Trials Using Digitized Protocol Information–An Exploration of New Tools for Digital Transformation

Join us for a presentation and panel Q&A to explore the newly released resources developed by TransCelerate’s Digital Data Flow (DDF) Initiative. DDF, in collaboration with CDISC and other industry stakeholders, has built the foundational capabilities and is helping enable a digital transformation that unlocks efficiencies in the design and conduct of clinical studies while modernizing pharma to healthcare interoperability. 

This webinar focuses on: 

  • An overview of the available tools and resources from different stakeholder perspectives. 
  • Exploration of various implementation scenarios that provide optionality towards greater USDM conformance. 
  • Focused discussion on several model implementation resources that may be used as a catalyst in your digitalization journey – solutions include the Study Definitions Repository (SDR) and prototype Common Protocol Template (CPT) Utility Tool.
