As Clinical Data Standards Architect (CDSA) - Data Collection, you are responsible for the implementation and maintenance of efficient standard content specifications for the data collection tools (eCRF and eCOA) that can be applied across all the diseases areas and therapeutic areas or that are specific to a specific therapeutic are or disease area.
Other responsibilities are:

  • Collaborate with an external service provider implementing efficient standards in the Rave eDC system (Medidata Solutions) and guaranteeing quality.
  • Define the specification of standard content in the data collections tools, primarily Medidata Rave, with the goal of creating efficiencies within the trials, consistency across the trials and automating the CRF build and the data flow from collection to SDTM (i.e. Standard Case Report Form Mockups, Standard Questionnaires, Rating Scales and Clinical Outcome Assessments, Standard Validation Rule Specifications and Standard Integrations (e.g. with IWRS) ).
  • Implement standard content in the collection tools compliant to the industry standards and health authority regulations, meeting best practices in computer system validation, where applicable;
  • Correct testing and QC of the collection tools and, therefore, collaborate with the respective functions in Integrated Data Analysis and Reporting (IDAR); 
  • Define and maintain the clinical data collection standards in line with the needs in clinical trials to meet additional scientific or operational requirement. To that end, you will guarantee that formal change management control and versioning of the standards is applied and adhered to.
  • Formally govern all the changes to standards and manage multiple versions in line with adoption needs of the clinical trials and drug development programs;
  • Tailor the global standards to the specific needs of Therapeutic Areas or Disease Ares, while maintaining the traceability and lineage of the metadata. Document and correctly manage the lineage between global standards and the pre-configured (tailored) standards;   
  • Provide the necessary support to the clinical data management teams to achieve consistent adoption of standards in the studies (internally or out sourced to a CRO). To that end, you proactively support identifying the standards supporting the trial objectives.
