In an era where technology has taken over almost every form of information dissemination and data collection; at the clinical investigative site level, there still remains a divided and skeptical attitude towards the most efficient way to collect data. While most pharmaceutical and biotech companies have adopted the use of EDC, eCRFs and almost every type of electronic capture of clinical trial data, clinical trial sites are still struggling between using the standard patient chart in a manila folder or three ring binder as the repository of their source documents versus the use of electronic source documents or EMR.

In this session, pros and cons, issues and challenges, opportunities and solutions will be discussed and debated. Current trends and status of adoption of technology by different site models, as an ideal way of improving efficiency of collecting data will likewise be reviewed.

Learning Objectives

Identify advantages and disadvantages of using eSource; Discuss the ways of transitioning use of paper source to eSource.
