Team Excellence in the Management of Clinical Data


Accelsiors Team Armenia

The Accelsiors Data Management Team was established in late 2018 following the closure of an established team based in Budapest, Hungary. The new team was located in Yerevan, Armenia and was built on a small platform of 2 senior data management colleagues who were previously working from home offices.

Over the course of 1 year, the team has established an office, moved to a larger office, implemented a new EDC platform and more importantly, developed a strong team ethic based on mutual trust and support.


Clinfidence data management team

Nutricia Research outsourced the data management of a clinical study with preterm infants to Clinfidence due to lack of internal resources. The outsourced study was challenging due to the vulnerable patients and the vast number of data points we collect per patient. To take over this work, during mid-study was a big challenge. Clinfidence dealt with this difficult task extremely professionally and made sure that all data management tasks were taken over smoothly
