This DIA 2017 presentation by Dr. Jules Mitchel provides an overview of paperless clinical trials and the tangible benefits that electonic source data (eSource) provides to Sites, Patients, Sponsors, and Regulators.
Now that paper records are disappearing from the clinical trial landscape, functionalities of the clinical trial enterprise should be easily available at one website and with one login. While documents can sit in the trial master file (TMF), access to the EDC system should be seamless from the time that the patient electronically signs the informed consent form (eICF).
