With the expansion of pharmaceuticals’ clinical research into emerging countries, many companies are pushing for better life sciences translation services and global electronic data capture (EDC) adoption in an effort to improve the efficiency and accuracy of patient data collection methods. Although there are many advantages to converting to a paperless system, there are several new challenges that have arisen in the process. Limited IT, limited life sciences translation services, inadequate training in EDC technology and language barriers have all contributed to the relatively slow progress of EDC adoption in international clinical trials.
