A Trial of Clinical Trials

Exciting news for clinical trial researchers! The days of spending more time figuring out how to use your electronic data capture (EDC) — rather than actually conducting research — could be troubles of the past. Recently, Porter Research, an independent firm based in Atlanta, determined that OmniComm Systems, Inc. received the highest grades for their TrialMaster EDC from clinical trial researchers around the globe.


For the survey, clinical trial researchers were asked to select their preferred EDC system based on their experience and EDC usage over the past 2 years. Additionally, they rated EDC systems based on ease of use, performance and customer support — all categories for which the TrialMaster EDC exceeded the average rating.


“We are delighted to have the site survey confirm what we have been hearing anecdotally for years — namely, that the site investigators really prefer our EDC system,” said Kuno van der Post, senior vice president of business development at OmniComm. “We were actually surprised to see that almost three out of five sites preferred the TrialMaster EDC over the presumptive market leader. Notably, our customer service and support are recognized as far superior to our larger competitors, based on the survey results. Again, this is great validation of our position in the current market as the EDC specialist.”

The survey indicated that researchers choose EDC systems — including the TrialMaster EDC — based on:


1.    Ease of data entry

2.    Simple login and navigation

3.    Overall user-system familiarity

4.    User-friendliness

5.    Easy-to-answer queries


So, researchers, we want to know: What makes you love your EDC system? How can EDC systems still be improved? What would make you switch to another system? Let us know in the comments below.
