Clinical Data Managers


Clinical data managers test and design clinical databases for health care organizations and research centers. They process clinical data and monitor work flow processes to make sure they are in compliance with operating standards. They use a wide variety of computer software programs to accomplish their work. Strong knowledge of mathematics as well as of the information and techniques needed for diagnosing and treating medical conditions is required for clinical data management. The Department of Labor does not yet provide information specifically about the clinical data manager profession, but reports that statisticians have similar responsibilities. This is a small field: In May 2016, there were approximately 33,440 statisticians working in the United States.
