CFAST was an initiative formed in June 2012 to accelerate clinical research and medical product development by creating and maintaining data standards, tools and methods for conducting research in therapeutic areas that are important to public health. CFAST was formed as a partnership between the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) and the Critical Path Institute (C-Path). Since launching CFAST, CDISC and C-Path have worked together to develop and publish new data standards for therapeutic areas and corresponding user guides.
CDISC and C-Path have agreed to discontinue using the separate CFAST brand, but they both remain committed to this mission and continue to partner to develop and publish therapeutic area data standards.
For additional information on published Therapeutic Area (TA) Standards, please visit CDISC.
