Data management is one of the main priorities of research teams and medical institutions. Due to the abundance of information in clinical trials, experts require good data capture, integration, storage, documentation, and transfer of material (Zhang et al., 2017).
During clinical trials, research data can be captured and documented electronically or in paper forms. As data collected via pen-and-paper techniques need to be transferred to enable further analysis, data might be prone to errors, low levels of readability, and limited usage. Electronic data capture (EDC), on the other hand, is a computerized system of collecting clinical data for use in human clinical trials in an electronic form. In the recent years, EDC systems have become a leading tool in research.
