IROC’s data management service will develop uniform processes to ensure that complete and correct images and data are received from research sites and to validate the sites’ adherence to protocol specifications. Case review will be accomplished through a combination of automated evaluation and assessment conducted by imaging and RT specialists.
Expedited reporting of data to research sites will provide critical feedback about case-specific and overall study performance, as well as about sites’ performance across multiple studies and NCTN Groups. Data reported to trial leadership will help identify performance trends and serve to aid in planning and implementing site-specific or trial-wide interventions.
Additionally, the archived images and data linked to case data will have tremendous potential for post hoc analysis. IROC will have the capability to retrieve and package archived data for scientific analysis, specialized reporting, and other NCTN-supported endeavors.
