Title: System and method for resolving a discrepancy in a clinical data management system

Abstract: A method for electronically resolving a discrepancy arising in a clinical data management system is provided. The discrepancy is converted, using a conversion map, from a back-end format, used to store a clinical value corresponding to the discrepancy, into a front-end format that is compatible with a front-end study definition. The discrepancy is then transferred, while in the front-end format, to a front-end site where the clinical value associated with the discrepancy was first entered. A discrepancy response is received from the front-end site. When the discrepancy response resolves the discrepancy, the discrepancy response is stored in the clinical data management system, thereby resolving the discrepancy.
