The purpose is to investigate opportunities and prerequisites for a national data collection system (Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system) and a central randomising function for academic research. The project shall also investigate the opportunities and a possible operating format for these functions in a central or regional body.
EDC (Electronic Data Capture) systems and eCRF (Electronic Case Report Form) are computerised systems for collecting and storing data in clinical trials. There are many systems for these purposes. A good system for academic studies is lacking – many of the existing solutions are expensive and include functions that are more advanced than necessary for academic studies.
The project shall:
Phase 1 of the initiative started in Q1 2016.
Phase 2 started In Q2 2017 and is expected to be completed by Q1 2018.
