EDC Platforms: What’s Right for You?

By Toby Odenheim, MBA, Director, Global Vendor Management

EDC systems are designed to collect clinical trial data directly from clinical sites over a secure web-based connection. Common components of EDC systems include: an administrative console for creating users and managing role-based security, a graphical user interface (GUI) for data entry, a validation engine to execute edit checks and verify the validity of the data entered into the system, a developers’ interface to build the electronic case report forms and program edit checks, and a reporting module providing both standard and ad hoc reporting capabilities and ability to export data. There are a number of EDC systems available.
