  • April 17, 2014

Despite some perceived challenges, electronic data capture has been widely accepted as being superior to paper, and has been adopted by a number of companies as the default choice for clinical studies. However, even as the industry begins to discover the opportunities offered by electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments (eCOA), a new and potentially paradigm-shifting model is already being touted as the Next Big Thing.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) offers a number of advantages over traditional eCOA studies, but there are also several significant challenges that must be overcome before it can become a feasible option. This webinar will explore the current state of eCOA and the future offered by BYOD, while highlighting some of the issues that need to be addressed to move the industry forward.
