SUGI 28 Posters Paper 238-28 METADATA APPLICATION ON CLINICAL TRIAL DATA IN DRUG DEVELOPMENT

By Julia Zhang

Abstract

As we move forward to an electronic environment, information proliferates rapidly. How do we efficiently manage this voluminous quantity of information and use this data appropriately? With metadata knowledge, we learned that we need to develop an effective and efficient metadata strategy to prevent us from suffering the chaotic situation associated with proliferation of mass amounts of information. Using metadata appropriately in the drug development environment can vastly increase work efficiency and reduce the probability of mistakes. In order to take advantage of the metadata methodology, we developed an application using Visual Basic ® for Applications (VBA) calling upon the Windows ® Application Programming Interface (API) in Microsoft ® Excel in conjunction with the SAS® system to efficiently apply metadata on clinical trial data
