Emanating Technologies in Modern Era of Clinical Trials
Abstract: During the last decade, all clinical trial activities are conducted using paper system. But twenty first century is the era of Virtual Clinical Trials. The current progress in the field of research helps in breaking the stereotype of implementing paper system in research studies and modified this system into Electronic Data Capture System. The positive results of EDC system helps in accelerating the technologies used in clinical trials. Data safety in clinical trials can be guaranteed with e-technology by a series of softwares like Oracle clinical, Argus etc. Emerging technologies like social media, wearables, m-health technology and artificial intelligence can provide some specific benefits to the study participants. The process of data collection can be strengthening by using electronic patient diaries. Patient outcomes can be upgraded by using m-health apps. Researchers also use m-health technologies in order to decrease trial time and drug development costs. Instead of all these advantages, e-technology can face some challenges and to reduce these challenges researchers should concentrate on using e-technologies in a precise manner.
