CDISC Proudly Announces the Registration of a Branch Office of the CDISC European Foundation in Hong Kong

Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 03, 2013

The Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) is delighted to announce the opening of a branch of the CDISC European Foundation in Hong Kong. Hong Kong was chosen for its centralized location in the fastest growing market in the world, and represents a significant opportunity for CDISC to expand the global adoption of CDISC standards. “Our presence in Hong Kong reflects our commitment to our existing and new members in the Asia-Pacific region. This includes existing member companies in such Asia-Pacific countries as Japan, China, South Korea, India, Thailand, Singapore and Australia. We at CDISC want to ensure that our members in this region feel that they have an outlet and are represented,” stated Sheila Leaman, CDISC Director of Global Relations.

After a vision that took nine months to come to fruition, the registration of the Hong Kong branch was finalized on 7 May 2013. “We are extremely pleased to announce our new CDISC Hong Kong branch,” said Dr. Rebecca Kush, CDISC President and CEO. “After discussions within CDISC Operations last year, we determined to proceed through our CDISC European Foundation entity to allow for a swifter process, and are glad that we will now have representation for our members in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Incidentally, after CDISC’s successful Interchange in Singapore in February 2013, attendees were interested in continuing to have a CDISC conference in the region. As such, CDISC is planning to have the next CDISC Asia-Pacific Interchange in Hong Kong in the summer of 2014 as a way to continue to provide value to our members and spread the message about CDISC standards in the region.

CDISC is a 501(c)(3) global non-profit charitable organization, with over 300 supporting member organizations from across the clinical research and healthcare arenas. Through the efforts of volunteers around the globe, CDISC catalyzes productive collaboration to develop industry-wide data standards enabling the harmonization of clinical data and streamlining research processes from protocol through analysis and reporting, including the use of electronic health records to facilitate the collection of high quality research data. The CDISC standards and innovations can significantly decrease the time and cost of medical research and improve data quality, thus contributing to the faster development of safer and more effective medical products and a learning healthcare system. The CDISC Vision is to inform patient care and safety through higher quality medical research.
