CDISC SHARE API Early Adopter Program

During 2017, CDISC members may participate in the CDISC SHARE Application Programming Interface (API) Early Adopters Program. Through this program, licensed users can access the version 1.0 RESTful web service to programmatically retrieve CDISC standards’ metadata from CDISC SHARE to support process automation. The API will further streamline your clinical research processes for myriad uses, including connecting to your organization’s metadata repository and other research applications, developing commercial products, creating desktop software (e.g., software supporting data analysis), preparing study data for submissions, and reporting. Platinum members will receive on-site training for up to five individuals for only the cost of instructor travel. To learn more about the CDISC SHARE API, please review the CDISC SHARE for Implementers documentation.

CROs, who have multiple clients that will use metadata from CDISC SHARE, can repackage CDISC SHARE content in their systems for their customers during 2017 with no additional charge.
