Electronic Data Capture
An Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system is a computerised system that collects clinical data in electronic format and is typically used to support human clinical trials. Typically, EDC systems provide: A graphical user interface component for data entry A validation component to check user data A reporting tool for analysis of the collected data EDC systems are used in te pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology industries in all aspects of clinical research. EDC oftens increases the data accuracy and reduces the time to collect data for studies of drugs and medical devices. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Electronic Data Capture’ in their stories:
