The Cost-Benefit Analysis of a Centralized Data Outsourcing Model

To further demonstrate the benefits of a centralized data outsourcing model, CROS NT discusses a cost-benefit analysis of choosing one vendor for all clinical data services. The benefits of a centralized approach include standardized data formats, improved traceability, greater leverage of work from one study to the next and significant cost reduction.

The benefits of the centralized data outsourcing model strategy can be seen in early phase drug development. Presenting a complete data package with full data, programs and TFLs and reports can speed up the due diligence process.

What do Sponsors face when data is not centralized?

Problem and solution of centralized data

Centralizing clinical data services – including biostatistics, data management and medical writing – saves time by creating a global library of databases, shorter learning curves between CRO and Sponsor and easy access to study metrics. Quality is greatly improved through standardization, familiarity with customer processes, formats and templates and communication.
