d-Wise's Insight on ReliefWeb's Article
I applaud the range of organizations that are pushing to make clinical research more transparent. Over 50 percent of clinical trials still go unreported, leading to the perception that researchers and the commercial industry are 'hiding' bad results.
In reality, this is probably not the case, but this perception leaves people thinking the worst. By stepping forward and tying funding to the requirements around disclosing clinical trial information, this forces researchers and pharma companies to share this information.
d-Wise fully supports and believes in the need for transparency, and has a taken the lead in the realm of patient privacy and data transparency. We work with a number of pharmaceutical companies in anonymizing clinical reports and de-identifying clinical data.
