Congratulations to Dr. Karina Loyo for becoming the first in our office to be a Certified Clinical Data Manager by the Society of Clinical Data Managers. Dr. Loyo passed the certification exam on August 22nd. This represents the first step towards SCDM industry partner certification for Prelude.

Prelude’s staff are integral in implementing best clinical data management practices to Client’s studies. Gaining recognition through SCDM’s CCDM certification provides an independent qualification and assurance to our clients about the quality of the staff they interact with and who manage their studies.

Richard Tieken, CEO, said, “We want every client to know they are in the best hands possible. Providing staff who are Certified Clinical Data Managers is just one way in which we continue to elevate the bar of excellence for our customer service, and show our commitment to the industry to always be at the leading edge of technology.” Prelude expects for other project managers to obtain their CCDM in the near future and is on track to achieve SCDM’s designation of CCDM® Industry Partner in the following months.
