King of Prussia, PA– February 6th, 2024:
CluePoints, providers of best-in-class statistical and AI-driven software solutions, has been shortlisted for the 2024 Annual Association of Clinical Data Management (ACDM24) Awards, in the category of Innovation in the Management of Clinical Data. The 2024 Winners will be announced at ACDM24 on March 4th in Copenhagen, Denmark.

CluePoints’ Statistical Research and Development Team, led by Sebastiaan Hoppner, Sr. Research Scientist in Statistics, has been recognized for a collaborative project that used ePRO audit trail data to detect risks in data quality. Working with data provided by its pharmaceutical partners, the team developed new and improved methods to detect anomalies in audit trail data, then shared this with a wider community of biopharmaceutical companies through its Central Monitoring Platform.

Through sharing knowledge of these findings with the wider community at conference presentations and in peer-reviewed publications, the CluePoints team are further contributing to industry-wide advancement. They are also in the process of creating guidelines on applying risk-based approaches in general to drive Audit Trail Review, including developing a minimal set of standardized supervised review metrics, for use by the wider biopharma community.

Steve Young, Chief Scientific Officer of CluePoints, commented, “In an era where clinical trials are expanding in scope and complexity, the introduction of Audit Trail Review - as a cornerstone of RBQM strategy - signifies a significant step towards ensuring the highest standards of data quality, integrity, and risk management in clinical trials, and is aligned with recent updates to regulatory expectations. This nomination represents valued recognition from our clinical data management peers and provides an opportunity through the ACDM Awards for sharing best practice to improve process and increase positive outcomes in clinical research.”
