Medical Coding

Drug, AE, and Other Medical Terminology
Medical coding of clinical trial terminology is often overlooked during trail set-up, and can cause downstream problems without proper planning.
Our coding services combine the power of experienced medical terminology coders with our proprietary coding software tool, ClinPlus® Coding. Integration with MedDRA, WHO DD Enhanced, COSTART, WHOART, ICD9, ICD10, or with your own customized dictionaries, is possible – providing you with one of most intuitive and powerful tools on the market. A one-stop-shop for all the tools and services you need to support your Medical Coding. As much as we utilize our technology to create efficiencies, it’s our team of specially trained coders that can make the difference in your trial.
Our process includes an in-depth look into the data you are planning to collect and how the data will be reviewed and analyzed to appropriately determine the specific coding conventions for your trial. This type of planning ensures your coded data is consistent, analyzable, and tells the accurate story when it comes to your results.
Pre study work includes:
Understanding the likely reported terms specific to the subject population and the therapeutic area
Dictionary version management – many dictionaries including MedDRA and WHODRUG release multiple versions throughout the year
Development of phrase substitution list to improve the auto-encoding hit rate
Development of customized reports to ensure you are provided with immediate visibility and access to your medical coded data
