    NEW YORK, March 20 /CNW/ - Medidata Solutions, a global provider of
electronic clinical data capture, management and reporting solutions, today

    March 23, 2007, Chonbuk National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea

    Session Title: "The Future of Data Management in Clinical Trials"

    March 23, 1:30 p.m.

    In this presentation, de Vries will address data management in clinical
trials with a focus on adaptive methodologies within the scope of both single
clinical trials and the management of multiple compounds and portfolios. This
presentation will provide a look at the increasing adoption of EDC and how
prospective cleaning and analysis of data will continue to enhance earlier
decision making and collaboration across geographic and linguistic borders.
Additionally, de Vries will highlight how the roles of monitors and data
managers may evolve as EDC and clinical data management systems merge, and as
electronic health records are used as a direct source of subject data.
