Advarra Electronic Data Capture (EDC)

Advarra Electronic Data Capture (EDC) is a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant EDC system that is available for UK researchers. In addition to a robust traceability of all data entered or modified within the EDC case report forms, Advarra EDC is integrated with Epic-Beaker to retrieve and post lab results automatically. The system will help streamline data collection/management, data monitoring/review, and incorporate an electronic signature approving all data collection instruments. This system will enhance overall data integrity and quality for investigator-initiated studies enterprise wide, especially those regulated by the FDA. 

Who can use this system?

This system is free-for-use by any UK investigator in need of a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant data capture system.  The primary audience are those investigators with an IIT that have a drug/device trial that will require electronic submission to the FDA. However, the system may be used as a robust data management tool even if Part 11 compliance is not required.
