An Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system —also known as electronic case report form (eCRF)— is a software application used to collect, clean, and export data in a clinical trial.
EDC systems are used to collect, refine, and transmit clinical data in clinical trials and observational studies.
They are web-based applications containing the patients enrolled in the study and forms in which hospital staff inserts clinical data like demographics, vital signs, blood tests, and treatment information, among others.
These clinical data are then cleaned up by correcting wrong information and solving discrepancies through queries, so that the final clean database can be analyzed to produce the results.
Zlynger has developed an innovative web-based EDC solution that streamlines data collection, cleaning, and exports in phase I-IV clinical trials.
This software tool does not require any installation in the computer and works in most Internet browsers and mobile devices.
Zlynger’s EDC application enables secure, fast, and simple clinical data entry and processing for trials of any size and therapeutic area.
