In the last few decades, clinical trials have become essential for multiple reasons, and the ongoing deadly global pandemic only hammers down the need for clinical electronic data capture
Reduced clinical trials and study time
Diseases, ailments, and medical conditions can mutate and develop rapidly, engulfing an entire population with a span of few months. This requires instant testing, trials, and medical examinations to help patients find relief and comfort. With old-school or traditional methods of collecting and storing patient and disease data, clinical trials weren’t as fast and effective as they’re today and that is mostly thanks to electronic data capture systems.
With EDC systems, you can expect your study time to be reduced, significantly. After the data collection phase is done, you can quickly refine and prepare statistical information for further analysis.
Without the need for additional help and equipment to collect and store data, EDC systems are able to cut back costs and unnecessary expenses for clinical trials. You only have to invest in the system once and have long-term access to real-time data, accurate reporting, and monitoring capabilities.
