Accuracy in medical coding

For longer studies, Medical Coding for IBM Clinical Development can facilitate accessing required MedDRA updates. You can update your dictionary of verbatims during a study to help you ensure your adverse event codes are aligned with FDA requirements. The autocoding feature checks entries against both dictionary and approved study coding, and you can import coding from one study to the next to help maintain consistency.

"So why is IBM at OCT Southeast?": We are SO glad you asked!

Of all the questions we heard as a sponsor of last week’s Outsourcing in Clinical Trials Southeast conference, that was definitely the most frequent.

And it’s perfectly understandable. Because while IBM has worked in healthcare for more than half a century (we developed the first pediatric medical record in the 1960s), most of that work has been “behind the scenes” supporting the use of technology in tens of thousands of hospitals, health systems and research organizations worldwide.

Join IBM to learn best practices in conducting patient-centric trials

Thought leaders from industry and patient-advocacy groups to share methods to optimize trials through stronger patient relationships at national conference.

Patient Centricity, the drive to better align the needs and expectations of both patient and researcher in a clinical trial, is among today’s most important industry issues. Advanced technologies such as smartphones, wearable devices and embedded sensors can help researchers enhance the quality of patient relationships and the timeliness and accuracy of patient-reported data.
