Now hosting its 10th session, the industry experts will discuss the benefits and challenges of paper trials and EDC systems, latest industry trends, items to consider before selecting the appropriate EDC solution, and best practices to implement a successful transition from paper-based clinical trials to EDC. The panel will be compromised of life science industry leaders including Esmeralda Sanjust, Sr. Director of Clinical Affairs at Elixir Medical Corporation and Ana Puildo Ferrer, CEO at Digitaliza TXT, a leading technology provider for CROs in Latin America.

The event will include a networking session to facilitate discussions amongst attendees on the latest trends surrounding the clinical trials industry.
Since its beginnings in the 1990s, Electronic Data Capture (EDC) solutions have been well adopted and the advantages of EDC are recognized throughout the industry, including improved data quality, faster data entry, and an overall 30% reduction in clinical development duration. In addition, with EDC software, forms are safely stored and backed-up in a cloud-hosted system allowing users to remotely access a fully searchable central location from anywhere. EDC adoption also leads to fewer site visits, shorter patient recruitment time, reduction or elimination of printing cost and faster data entry resulting in significant reduction in cost.
The panelists will share their experience with both paper-based and electronics clinical trials, will discuss benefits and challenges of each, and share best practices for a successful implementation. Registration is now open at http://www.Clinovo.com/BioTalks.
