Risk Based Monitoring DMEG

Risk Based Monitoring Data Management Expert Group

The RBM data management expert group focuses on driving thought leadership discussions with respect to Risk-based Quality Management (RBQM) in clinical trials and how to drive data quality and integrity outcomes that surpass legacy ways of working, enhancing the resources available to data managers. The group meets on a monthly basis to share thought leadership and experience in implementing RBQM and different approaches to monitoring and processing clinical data.  This is a constantly evolving and dynamic area of clinical trials with many organisations across the industry being at different stages of their adoption. ACDM’s RBM team are currently discussing different approaches to detecting clinical trial risk from within the data, such as using Key Risk Indicators (KRIs), Quality Tolerance Limits (QTLs), Statistical Monitoring, Source Data Review (SDR) and where appropriate, Source Data Verification (SDV). The team discuss implementation approaches, impact on roles and responsibilities, impact to data management, adaptive approaches and demonstrable value. 
 
The RBM group aims to further the development and skill-set of our wider ACDM community and would be delighted to invite more members to our growing RBM team. We look forward to hearing from you.

Lorena Rodríguez
Associate Director, Data Management
TFS Develop

I started my career as Data Manager 20 years ago, right after finalizing my Degree in Statistics. Since then, I have been always in the field of Data Management in both CRO and pharma environments. I always liked programming and software, so I initially focused my career in SAS programming and CRF/eCRF design, gradually moving to Data Management activities and coordination, systems evaluation, data management initiatives and process improvement. For many years I have also acted as Project Data Manager, overseeing clinical trials and leading cross functional teams involving Data Management, Statistics, Programming and Safety.

I am currently participating actively in the definition and update of the RBM strategy and processes within my company so being part of the Risk Based Monitoring Group Expert is a great opportunity to learn and share experiences and knowledge on the exciting and constantly evolving RBM world.
