Bridging Clinical Trials with AI

The Effectiveness of Adaptive Tooling and Data Architecture

By Eftim Pop-Lazarov, Chief AI Product Officer, Adaptive Clinical Systems
In the realm of clinical trials, data is the compass guiding us to the desired outcomes of life science research. The emergence of innovative data architectures highlights the central importance of seamless data management, interoperability, and real-time data exchange. At Adaptive Clinical Systems, we navigate the landscape with a suite of robust tools, facilitating the construction of a data ecosystem conducive to agile, precise, and compliant clinical trials.

Introduction to the Modern Data Architecture Landscape

The transition from Data Lakes and Data Warehouses to the comprehensive approach of Data Lakehouse architecture has been crucial, especially for the Life Sciences domain. This transformation facilitates a structured yet flexible data management framework, fostering a seamless flow of data across various stages of clinical trials (Datanami, 2022; Datanami, 2023)

Secure Data Sharing through Adaptive Tooling:

Adaptive’s eClinical Bus and connectors have been instrumental in promoting secure data sharing, paralleling the capabilities of AWS RDS. By enabling real-time data exchange, these tools significantly enhance collaborative efforts and streamline operations across clinical trials (AWS, 2023).

Upholding Data Quality for Precise Insights:

Our automated AI-driven data mappers are akin to Snowflake’s Streams and Tasks, emphasizing the importance of high-quality real time data at the source. Ensuring the accuracy and consistency of data is paramount for deriving precise insights that drive informed decisions in clinical trials (Snowflake, 2023).

Robust Data Management for Consistent Access and Integrity:

Our tools not only offer interoperability with widely acknowledged generic data management platforms, but also provide the adaptability to integrate with specific clinical trial data systems like Veeva and Medrio, managing data from healthcare device manufacturers like Massimo, Medisante, etc. This unique blend of generic and specific data management capabilities sets us apart, ensuring data integrity, consistency, and accessibility.

Data Security and Compliance as Cornerstones of Patient Trust in Clinical Trials:

Our end-to-end encryption protocols, along with practices similar to Dynamic Data Masking and secure views, form a robust foundation for safeguarding patient confidentiality and ensuring compliance. Incorporating privacy-preserving AI techniques further solidifies our commitment to data security, fostering a trustworthy environment for all stakeholders. Moreover, our focus extends to ensuring stringent compliance with regulatory standards like PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, FedRAMP, GDPR, FIPS 140-2, and NIST 800-171 through our adaptive tooling. Our proactive approach significantly mitigates risks and fosters a compliant data management ecosystem, exemplified by our AI that learns from project data without compromising client confidentiality (Microsoft Azure, 2023).


Adaptive Clinical Systems, with its eClinical Bus, connectors, and automated AI-driven data mappers, stands at the forefront of navigating the data landscape effectively. Our industry-leading solutions are not merely a response to the evolving data architecture landscape but a leap forward, ensuring that the domain of clinical trials is well-prepared to embrace the future.
