This report analyzes the current and future use of electronic data capture (EDC) and electronic patient reported outcomes (ePRO) technologies in clinical trials. ISR quantifies study volume and vendor preference, identifies operational improvements, develops implications and recommendations for sponsors and service providers, and discusses the movement towards eClinical services. The report also provides extensive product profiles of 20 EDC and 14 ePRO products based on 710 unique end-user experiences.

This report provides the pharmaceutical industry and its service providers with novel insights into the current and future use of these technologies and enables better technology provider selection.

From a classical market development point of view, EDC technology has finally crossed the chasm' and has become the de facto data collection mechanism for clinical trials, Andrew Schafer, President of ISR explained. While ePRO does not start from the same vantage point - not all studies need a patient-reported outcome component - we do see the ePRO market maturing and several products beginning to emerge as market leaders.

This study surveyed 101 site-coordinators and principal investigators with responsibility for data collection at their sites. The data captured represent 710 on-the-ground service experiences across 20 EDC and 14 ePRO products.

With this data, sponsors can make more informed outsourcing decisions, improve relationships with sites by utilizing technology platforms they prefer, and build efficiencies into study designs, Schafer explained. For service providers, this Voice-of-the-Customer' research offers unique product satisfaction data from end-users on their product and their competitors.

In addition to end-user satisfaction data, the report also provides service providers with important insights into current and future EDC and ePRO market trends, including: adoption, usage, preference, study penetration by Phase, and the new eClinical' service many large CROs are beginning to offer that is sure to impact the competitive landscape.
