Electronic data collection is a strong motivator for organizations to invest in technology. However, even with the compelling advantages, many instruments and systems still remain disassociated, with data entry and transfer largely handled manually. Bioscience Technology brought this news to us in their article, “Better Data Integrity.”

Manual data transcription and reporting can take away valuable time from scientists focusing on the science. Frequently, transcribed data lacks certain elements as well as the traceability needed to satisfy internal quality management or regulatory mandates.

What is needed is a way to add integrity to the data. It is important to choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
