- 2) Time saving
- 3) Cleaner data and reduced quearies
- 4) Tracibility
- 5) Simplified modeling

- 10) Patient Safety
Using electronic data capture allows for those running the trial to see patterns in data faster allowing for changes to be made in the clinical trials while they are taking place. There is also the benefits of using less paper, straight data entry into the system create fewer data errors, and saves money on paper and printing costs. However the benefits are not without their challenges. Electronic data capture systems are expensive and there are challenges within the work force of adapting to the new system. Data privacy is also another major concern with electronic data.
