Business Problem

Client recognized there were multiple sources for common data points and a lack of authoritative data sources. There were significant issues with data quality and integrity and there was no effective data quality management function. Also, a fragmented reporting environment resulted in inconsistent outputs.

Hawkins Point Solution

Hawkins Point evaluated information systems used by the different functional areas (Global Clinical Operations, Regulatory & Data Management) involved in the management of clinical data flow. We provided various improvements such as a standardized reporting and dashboarding mechanism across multiple sources with ad-hoc capability and a single source of truth for operational data, including current and historical data. Hawkins Point also standardized data definition, ontology and vocabulary, and designed aggregation and sematic layers with virtual, federated data marts for consistent reporting.
