DaVinci - Data Access and dynamic Visualization for Clinical Insights is a framework offering dynamic tools with analytics and visualization functionalities to support data-based discussions, insights and agile decision making in clinical development projects.

The main objective of the project is to provide a GCP compliant platform to dynamically review, aggregate and visualize patient data in order to enable smart decisions.

For clinical trial professionals in OneMedicince who need real time access to clinical trial data and tools to dynamically review, aggregate and visualize patient data in order to make smart decisions, DaVinci acts as an App Warehouse and community of practice.
