Global EDC Adoption

Internet electronic data capture (EDC) is now established as an effective way of conducting clinical trials. Faster access to cleaner data, a more streamlined and less batch-based process and faster database lock are driving real benefits for trial sponsors, leading to a growing acceptance that EDC can be a better way of running studies.

With regions such as South America and Asia Pacific rapidly developing as areas for clinical trials based on the growing importance of these markets to pharma companies, and the adoption of international standards for conducting clinical research, are EDC studies a realistic option for global studies? In fact, online Internet EDC actually facilitates running studies across a number of geographically dispersed countries.

The unique capability to remotely access and centrally manage data as it rapidly accumulates from sites around the world removes the delays and costs inherent in the traditional labour-intensive paper shipping processes. As Internet use spreads rapidly throughout the world, the barriers to deploying EDC are quickly disappearing, making this an increasingly attractive approach for sponsors. There are now many examples of successful EDC trials running beyond the traditional areas of the US and Europe, including sites in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific and China.
