International Clinical Trials

eSource at the Sites

For clinical research, the shift away from paper has been a
long and gradual process. Decades have now passed since
electronic data capture (EDC) was first implemented in a trial,
yet, to this day, some researchers remain beholden to paper
case report forms (CRFs) and databases. In fact, even those
who have switched are not fully electronic, as data is only
entered into the system after it is captured on a paper CRF at
the site level. In other words, while EDC has taken great strides
in modernising the operations of clinical data managers,
workflows at the site level are largely the same – as far as
data capture is concerned – as before the emergence of
eClinical technology.

This is one of the central reasons why the advent of eSource
technology – which allows data to be entered directly into
an electronic system and shared remotely with no paper
involved – represents a watershed moment for research.
eSource is largely seen as an improvement to timelines and
data integrity and, therefore, a boon for sponsors and CROs.
However, it is from these sites that these improvements
emanate.

Data Technology as a Catalyst for Growth in the Life Sciences

AIGENPULSE

The life sciences industry is changing at a rapid pace. The need to develop the next blockbuster is pushing current technologies and methodologies to the limit. Scientific advancement over the last decades was embossed with giant leaps in knowledge, however, the new reality is that smaller incremental gains need to be carved out with ever increasing investments. In order to survive, progress and prosper in this new reality, a holistic approach to getting the most of research data is crucial. In fact, it will likely be the difference of being in existence in 5-10 years or not. For those bold enough to step into an area they are unfamiliar with, huge rewards are waiting.
