The promise of electronic data capture (EDC) to improve the quality, speed and cost of clinical trials is too significant to be ignored. Faced with challenges such as greater competition, increasing time-to-market pressure and budgetary limitations, choosing to carry out trials on an electronic web-based EDC platform is a solution that dramatically improves your clinical trial’s performance. An EDC solution makes the task of entering clinical data as easy as possible and allows data to accessible anywhere you have an internet connection. EDC is built to put control of trial information in the sponsor’s hands. It is a customer-oriented tool that provides the sponsor with total access to trial information, thereby supporting decisions based on real-time information. Here are just a few ways in which using EDC shortens timelines, improves the quality of data and helps to cut trial costs.
The EDC shortens the timelines from monitoring to data cleaning and database lock. Described below is the shortened CRF Processing on EDC in compare to paper CRF:
Using EDC cuts out a number of steps and data processing and brings the digital database closer to the original source data allowing for cleaner data and more accurate results. Specifically:
Enhanced Data Quality:
Using EDC cuts out a number of steps and data processing and brings the digital database closer to the original source data allowing for cleaner data and more accurate results.
Lower Study Costs:
In addition to the savings of saved time and higher data quality, EDC can bring down study costs in numerous other ways including:
