EDC Success Guides

Resources for better data, faster. No matter how you’re capturing it.

EDC success requires more than the right technology. It requires knowledge of regulations, standards, and best practices. Expand your knowledge today with the guides below. 

Complex clinical measures

When it comes to math, the modern eCRF is no slouch. Learn how forms can venture far beyond basic arithmetic to produce all kinds of measures, like glomerular filtration rates, from more basic measures. Caution: fractional exponents ahead!

What's the score?

For some scores, calculation is easy. Measure this and that, then add them together. Other times, scoring requires a prodigious memory and faultless application of logic. In these cases, forms are a research clinician’s best friend.

Tables for Coding and Reference Ranges

Tables are an intuitive and powerful way to associate the key terms of an adverse event with standard categories and codes. See how to apply them in this short recording.

Is your EDC registry ready?

Observational studies present unique challenges to recruitment, cohort balancing, and data entry . To meet them, your EDC should score high on these four dimensions. Read all about them here to ensure your EDC can travel “registry road.”

Eligibility Made Easy

Include or exclude? The road to the right answer isn’t always a straight line. But you can design your form in a way that makes the trip as efficient as possible. Test drive a form that does the hard work of applying the evaluation logic.

Get Better Dates (in Your Forms)

Take guesswork out of the equation for your sites and statisticians. From formatting standards to partial dates, these recommendations will ensure everyone is on the same page of the calendar.

Creating Site Performance Reports

Query logs. Missing data reports. There’s power in all that operational data. Here’s a tool to quickly convert your exports into site-specific reports you can email in batch to your clinical research coordinators.

Lab Reference Ranges: One Doesn't Fit All!

Labs usually vary on what they consider the upper and lower limits of normal for an analyte. Here’s how to carefully document those site-specific ranges.
