Save Time and Resources

Implementing CDISC standards can save approximately 60% in time and resources to conduct clinical research. And implementing CDISC standards from the start can save 70-90% of study start-up time.

"CDISC has renewed my hope and my dream of making clinical trials faster and more cost-effective by harnessing the data in the EHR."

Kelley Meyer, MS
NRG Oncology Statistics and Data Management Center, University of Pittsburgh

Smarter Research to Unlock Cures

“Having good industry standards for our clinical data is so important because it creates order among the relative chaos of our clinical trial data. When we start to really do that, we can focus our energies on the really innovative and differentiating aspects of the clinical trials we run and stop reinventing the wheel.”

Jonathan Chainey
Global Head, Data Standards, Roche

75% of study data submitted within all NDA submissions are in standardized SDTM format**
