Many aspects of the clinical lifecycle are improved by proper management of metadata inside a central metadata repository.
Improving data quality is the key driver for implementing internal standards and a metadata management system.
- Define all your data up front
- Ensure consistency across studies
- Standardize mappings between different parts of the clinical lifecycle
- Drive study designs from standards
- Perform compliance checks to ensure adherence to standards.

Removing information silos
Managing metadata in a centralized system allows consistent change control and governance processes.
Single source of truth
A centralized metadata repository gives a single location to find your metadata assets. No more trying to remember where something is kept, or whether there's a newer version somewhere else.
Reuse of metadata
Study setup time can be dramatically reduced by pulling from standards. This leads to greater process efficiencies as the content has been already tested and validated, leading to less likelihood of mistakes and consistent mapping to downstream systems.
