Direct Data Capture (DDC) is one of the four types of eSource (see previous post), and is often what people first think of as eSource. Direct data capture is the process of entering data into the eCRF contemporaneously, rather than transcribing from other sources such as paper or site EHR systems. Some technology providers believe that EDC systems can be used as eSource, where the web based EDC system is carried around on a laptop, or potentially a tablet, and data is entered directly into this system.
eSource means different things to different people. You may have never even heard of it, so this is the first in a series of posts which aim to unlock what eSource is. When I ask “What does eSource mean to you?”, I receive many different answers, and quite often they weren’t what I had expected. Perhaps we should start by reminding ourselves of the current method for collecting and managing data in clinical trials.
