THE BENEFITS OF ELECTRONIC DATA CAPTURE

The promise of information technology is being realised by businesses around the world. This is evidenced is in the way computing power allows tasks, and even entire processes, to be completed whilst providing the additional benefits of improved methodologies, higher speeds and lower costs. Now, stakeholders of electronic data capture (EDC) are looking to achieve similar benefits in their clinical trial processes earlier on, prior to deploying a finished solution. Some believe the answer lies in a more effective way of implementing EDC. They contend that the days of expensive technology transfer, long implementation times and resource-intensive processes are coming to an end.

As the pharmaceutical industry moves higher up the learning and experience curves for EDC, there is less debate about the need for, and benefits of, EDC solutions as a powerful and necessary component in the clinical trial landscape. The discussion has moved beyond the question of whether EDC is useful, because these web-based systems are allowing investigators to log their findings directly into a centralised database, delivering accurate data in near real-time. These data may then be analysed for such purposes as reviewing the progress of clinical trials, supporting trial adaptation and reducing the costs of providing statisticians with study information. EDC also helps improve efficiencies – a benefit of great interest in drug development.

Sourcing Commercial Drugs for Clinical Trials: US vs. EU Understanding the Differences

Myoderm

Sourcing commercial drugs for clinical trials is a dynamic process. There are many factors to consider: single source or regional sourcing, strategy, price, supply availability, lead times, and documentation are just a few. In the past, there were fewer clinical trials that required commercial drug sourcing, so demand was not as high. Today, the demand for commercial drugs in clinical trials has greatly increased and, as a result, inventory is tighter, orders are monitored more closely by manufacturers, and lead times have increased. This report highlights the key differences in sourcing from the US and EU.
