Clinical Trial Data Management Services
Capturing and managing clinical data accurately is crucial for research outcomes, as the subsequent data will form the basis of all efficacy and safety analyses.
Managing Clinical Trial Data in Africa
If you’re conducting clinical studies in Africa, we’re your end-to-end partner. Whether you need help with site selection, participant recruitment, data collection, or clinical trial monitoring, we take the burden off of you.
Clinical data management (CDM) is one of the most crucial components. You need your clinical research data to be collected, cleaned, and validated, quickly and reliably.
Data Management Plan
Need help developing a DMP? From database design to case report form (CRF) design, we’ll ensure your clinical trial is set up for success.
From electronic data capture to data acquisition from third-party sources, we hold ourselves to the highest data collection standards and best practices.
Data quality is paramount for the success of your clinical trials. With processes such as double data entry and in-built edit checks, we meet the highest data standards.
What is Clinical Data Management?
Clinical Data Management (CDM) encompasses the full lifecycle of data, including the following:
- CRF annotation
- Database designing
- Data entry
- Data validation
- Discrepancy management
- Medical coding
- Data extraction
- Database locking
These systems and processes are assessed for quality at regular intervals during clinical research. All electronic records obtained through Electronic data capture (EDC) must align with the Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR Part 11). The end goal of CDM is to have as much quality information as possible, complete and free from errors. After the data has passed through the full CDM process, it is ready for statistical analysis.

What is a Clinical Data Management System?
A clinical data management system (CDMS) is a crucial tool for clinical research.
Essentially, a CDMS is a database management system designed for compliance with clinical data management practices with quality control at the forefront.
Why is a CDMS important?
A CDMS helps researchers collect, organize, validate, and export complex datasets from clinical trials. Without a CDMS, managing clinical data effectively would prove prohibitively difficult and costly. A CDMS also reduces the potential for errors.
Probe is our proprietary platform for managing clinical trials in Africa. In addition to possessing full CDMS capabilities (collecting data, validating it, medical coding, and reporting), Probe also enables participant recruitment, participant verification, e-consent, and much more.
In short, Probe is a comprehensive clinical trial management system (CTMS).
Our data management processes include:
- Electronic data capture
- Systems validation
- SAE reconciliation
- Clinical data acquisition standards harmonization
- Data validation plan
- E-sign and e-consent
- User acceptance test
- Roles and responsibilities management
- Regulations, guidelines, and standards adherence
- Data time-stamped audit trails
- Data queries
- Discrepancy management
- Database locking
- Regulatory submissions

- A proprietary platform, Probe, for managing clinical trials
- Deep industry knowledge of all aspects of clinical research, especially as it relates to clinical studies in Africa
Why Conduct Clinical Trials in Africa?
A technology-first approach to research. We are your foot on the ground in Africa.
Traditionally, Africa has not been particularly accessible to American and European researchers. We’re changing that, with the provision of quality clinical research for easy access to African research sites and participants.
Our pharmaceutical & academic partners conduct clinical trials in Africa for a fraction of the cost they would spend in other geographic regions.
The African population exhibits greater genetic diversity than the rest of the world combined. Obtaining safety and efficacy data in clinical trials from populations with broader genetic diversity is essential for data integrity and generalizable results.
If you’re researching rare diseases endemic to the African continent (e.g., malaria, ebola, sickle cell anemia, hantavirus or monkeypox), you’ll want to conduct your clinical trials in Africa.
