A Clinical Data Platform for Complete and Concurrent Data

Veeva CDB is a clinical data platform that aggregates and harmonizes all data sources so you get clean, well-organized data that is ready-to-use faster.


Complete and Concurrent Data

Consolidate all your study data into a clinical data platform for integrated cleaning, reporting, and export.

Faster Time to Insights

Minimize the time between data generation and consumption. Seeing accurate data sooner allows you to adapt quickly and run more effective trials.

Accessible to the Entire Team

Democratize access to a clean, holistic view of your data to foster better decision making.

Immediate Access to All Your Data

Gain complete visibility into all your data, whether the study is managed internally or by CRO partners.


Automated Ingestion Engine

Aggregate and harmonize your data from Vault EDC and external data sources. The ingestion engine loads data on-demand or on schedule, associates it with the correct study and subject, and detects any changes to the data or data structure. Productized integrations and open APIs will increase reliability while lowering the cost and complexity of system integrations.

Clinical Database

Diverse data sources are aligned to a common study backbone, making it easier to compare and reconcile data from different sources. Gain instant access to all metadata associated with each data point. Data is then accessible through CQL, an intuitive and efficient data querying language specific to clinical data.

Clinical Query Language (CQL)

Veeva's new programming language, designed specifically for clinical trials. Pre-built functions exist for common tasks and edit checks, replacing hundreds of lines of SQL with a few lines of CQL. Clinical programmers can perform advanced functions on their data, calculate derived values, and build sophisticated queries with minimal effort. Data managers gain new-found powers and get closer to their data than ever before.

Clinical Listings

Study data reports, or core listings, are generated automatically for each data source - no configuration needed. Users work with a powerful, Excel-like interface for viewing and filtering data along with purpose-built tools for cleaning, reconciling, and transforming data. Centralize discrepancy management with listings that compare sources and highlight exceptions and the ability to manage queries for all data types.

Consolidated Exports

Consolidate EDC and non-EDC data in a single export package, including clinical and operational data. Standard export definitions aid downstream users. Export packages can be setup to run on a recurring schedule. Workbench will support purpose-built out-of-box and customizable data transformations.

Operational Reporting

Operational reports provide valuable insights as data is being collected and consolidated. Track the status of data from every source at every step in the process, from data entry, data cleaning, SDV, review, and locking. Get reports in real time and drill down from high-level dashboards to granular reports. Sponsors and CROs each gain real-time visibility into the data without sending frequent requests and reports back and forth.
