In the pharmaceutical industry, getting the real time data from EDC systems into SAS Datasets is still the biggest challenge. Companies spend significant amount of time and resources in synchronizing data from EDC systems to SAS datasets. As the industry becomes more and more competitive, having the right data in hand for analysis as soon as it has been entered is crucial and challenging.


This paper talks about how to integrate and synchronize data from InForm EDC system through SAS Clinical Data Integration and convert it into SAS Datasets. It will describe the process flow and technical details required to set up the connection between SAS Clinical Data Integration and InForm EDC trial. It will also discuss how to fetch the metadata, clinical data in the form of ODM XML, parse the ODM XML and produce the SAS Datasets for each clinical domain. The integration involves technologies like SOAP, XML, XSL, SAS programs and SAS Clinical Standard Toolkit.
