DIA Annual Meeting Attendees Invited to Participate in Electronic Data Capture (EDC) Clinical Trial Survey

eClinical Forum partners with TechTeam Global to complete important new study

SAN DIEGO, June 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Attendees at the 45th Annual Meeting of the Drug Information Association (DIA), held June 21-25 in San Diego, Calif., will have a chance to respond to an in-depth, global survey of investigational site experience with eClinical trial technologies.

TechTeam Global, Inc. (Nasdaq: TEAM), a worldwide provider of information technology outsourcing and business process outsourcing services, is facilitating the survey in partnership with the eClinical Forum. Members of the eClinical Forum and numerous other collaborating associations have invited site staff involved in clinical trials to participate in this global and system-independent survey. DIA Annual Meeting attendees can participate by visiting Booth 2209 on the conference show floor.

This survey will provide valuable insight into trends regarding use of eClinical technologies. It is the first update in seven years to a report on EDC use in clinical trials published in July 2001. At that time, it was reported that:

  • 52 percent of survey respondents had experience with EDC. Within that group, 44 percent of clinical trials used EDC.
  • The majority of patient data was still entered traditionally in paper patient records, with only 14 percent of data entered directly in electronic case report forms (eCRF).
  • 69 percent of investigators said EDC would positively affect their decision to participate in trials.

Other organizations participating in the 2009 survey include Data Management Biomedical (DMB), Association for Clinical Data Management (ACDM), ARCS Australia Ltd and Der Fachverband fur Berufstatige in der Medizinischen Dokumentation (DVMD).

Professor Dr. Paul Gemmel from the University of Ghent, Department of Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship is supervising the survey and will validate its methodology and statistical relevance. TechTeam is scheduled to announce the survey's findings in a webinar on October 12, 2009.
