Electronic Data Capture (EDC)

Author: Peter Jackling


The purpose of this paper is to review the state-of-the-art in the use of hand-held computers for collecting research data. This may be done via interviewers or ‘tied’ panellists; both approaches will be described and summaries of benefits provided, based on practical experience of cases in several countries. A review of major current applications will be presented, covering live and experimental work in USA, Australia and Europe.
