EDC Market Dynamics and Service Provider Performance (3rd Edition)


EDC systems have become essential and effective tools to appropriately capture, review and even present the data accumulated throughout the course of a clinical trial. EDC has become the standard tool for its job in clinical trials across the board. Ever more, sponsors and CROs alike are turning to these systems to ensure the highest quality data, and to save money by reducing trial delays associated with difficulties related to data capture.

This report examines the industry perception of the EDC market based on the responses of 148 industry professionals experienced with these systems. ISR has asked respondents how their respective companies handle the decisions associated with outsourcing these systems as well as how they would prefer the outsourcing be handled. Additionally, ISR has benchmarked 29 EDC systems based on more than 900 EDC service provider encounters. Each provider’s performance is benchmarked based on the performance of these providers against expectations across 20 attributes.
