The Role of Technology in Clinical Research

by ICRI India Reviews Institute of Clinical Research India

These days there is an increase in the role that technology is playing when it comes to clinical research.  The trials that are undertaken during the research are expensive, complex, and long and the use of EDC or electronic data capture makes it easier. The implementation of the EDC can help to accelerate the processes in the trials and can increase the quality of the data, any regulatory compliance and keep down the costs.

EDC Functions and Advantages

There are many advantages that come along with using the EDC to improve the clinical research aspect and these also have to do with the various functions. These include:

  • User support, which has the advantages of being operated from any location along with online training
  • Access rights that allow limited access along with necessary rights for each role and identifiable users through user ID and the password
  • Security of data that allows high levels of protection from manipulation of the data and a fall back plan
  • Validation through implementation checks and ranges to lower any entry errors and faster queries
  • Audit trail that records all of the changes made in the system and that can be reproduced
  • Storage of data which allows you to store and archive the data for any long period

All of these are just some of the benefits that technology has on the ever-changing world of clinical research.

The adaptation and use of technology are helping to bring new medicines and other treatments into use quicker since there is an easier way to keep track of everything. You can limit the access of specific users to only a set range of data and your data will be secure, which means that nothing can be manipulated. Also, there is a trail that you can follow that would allow you to see all changes and then revert them, which means technology is definitely helping in this sector.
