SAS and the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC)

Data standards are a critical component in the quest to improve global public health. Inefficiencies in the collection, processing and analysis of patient and health-related information drive up the cost of drug development for life sciences companies and negatively affect the cost and quality of health care delivery for patients and consumers.

The solution is to make use of data standards, such as those from CDISC, to provide more efficient and effective use of medical information by all members of the health care and life sciences ecosystem.
