Data Management Services

Topstone Research takes pride in providing outstanding Clinical Data Management services, customized to your requirements by following ICH, GCP, and regulatory agency guidelines, using controlled and secure computing environments with validated software and systems (21 CFR Part 11 compliant) and well-designed workflow processes and procedures. We support your drug development needs by providing real-time, faster access to data, enabling you to make faster decisions and getting your drugs to the market as quickly as possible, while making patient safety a top priority.

Topstone Research adheres to current top industry standards. The use of Standard Operating Procedures, and the use of templates for standard CRF/eCRFs, Data Management Plans, User Acceptance Test documents, data review checklists, database quality acceptance sampling plans, database lock checklist sign-off sheets, etc. ensure consistent high quality. All data is captured according to CDASH standards, and goes through vigorous quality checks. Any discrepancies are resolved through full query management.
