The value and benefits of data integration and clinical data sharing are to the entire research community, not necessarily or specifically to an individual Life sciences company. For example, a company who did not collect original data on a compound, may derive great value from the availability of shared and well integrated clinical data to prevent them from going down a blind alley or research dead end, saving valuable capital and scientific resources. In another example, shared data could allow a company to evaluate and possibly model the ‘potential’ effects of a known substance on a new patient population, in order to design a prospective study to minimize the potential safety risks of the exposure of that substance to a new patient population, as well as to better measure its efficacy effects. ACI Clinical is pleased and proud to participate in efforts within the academic, commercial and regulatory sectors to promote and enable clinical data sharing by individual companies or via independent “clinical data clearing houses” that evaluate the scientific and ethical merits of a proposed use case of shared clinical data.
