CDISC is a global, non-profit charitable organisation that develops data standards to streamline clinical research and enable connections to healthcare. Their mission is to develop and support global, platform-independent data standards that enable information system interoperability to improve medical research and related areas of healthcare. Their values are based on principles from the Economy of Communion: Those involved in the Economy of Communion are inspired by the principles of a culture which is different from the prevailing theory and practice of economics. This “culture” can be defined as the “culture of giving”, which is the antithesis of a “culture of having.”
They work to these values in our everyday activities to enhance the way CDISC operates, acting altruistically to contribute to the advancement of global healthcare.
Benefits of implementing CDISC standards include:
OCS Consulting has been a CDISC member for many years and has reached the CDISC Gold Member status.
We are working with CDISC standards on a daily basis and we have multiple consultants with experience in standards like SDTM, ADaM, SEND, and Define-XML.
