Improvements In Data Quality Of Clinical Data Management Systems Brought About By The Use Of Electronic Data Capture Software
Electronic data capture (EDC) makes clinical research better nowadays. Although clinical studies were done centuries before, the first proper clinical study was only performed in the 1700s. While there was no medical data collection done before this time, observations and results were written in paper.
Clinical studies are an important tool for research. They help advance medical knowledge and patient care. Without properly recorded data, the medical community cant develop new drugs and treatment methods.
