What Is CDISC?

CDISC (Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium) is an organization that develops industry standards. The standards support the electronic acquisition, exchange, and archival of clinical trials data and metadata for medical and biopharmaceutical product development. CDISC defines several data models for the interoperability of clinical data exchange.
The mission of CDISC is to develop and support global, platform-independent data standards that enable information system interoperability to improve medical research and related areas of health care.
