About us

The UK-based Association for Clinical Data management (ACDM) and the French Data Management Biomedical (DMB) initiated international contacts among Clinical Data Management groups in the year 2000.

Representatives of associations in Germany, the Nordic region, Australia and the US were identified, and an informal network of e-mail contacts and quarterly teleconferences was initiated. These representatives wished to continue the information exchange and discussions of relevance to our member associations, but also felt it important to establish a truly international body, recognized by the “profession” as capable of making contact with and gaining information and feedback from literally thousands of Clinical Data Managers through these member associations.

Since its formation, the INCDMA has continued to hold regular teleconferences, has identified associations for Clinical Data Managers in several additional countries, and has identified and included individuals in countries where Clinical Data Management is practiced but where there is (as yet) no formal association.
