A Smarter eCOA
Traditional electronic clinical outcome assessment (eCOA) platforms and applications often underperform.
Too complex and time-consuming, data is inaccurately captured, sites are encumbered with inefficient workflows, and dissatisfied patients drop out of studies before eCOAs get completed.
Core to its eSource technology, Clinical ink has invested years in traditional research, patient-centric research, and user experience expertise to build a smarter, faster, higher quality eCOA solution that optimizes patient engagement and data management for sites, sponsors, and CROs.

Advantages of Clinical ink eCOA
Frequently Asked Questions
What is eCOA?
eCOA (electronic Clinical Outcome Assessment) refers to the use of electronic devices, such as smartphones or tablets, to collect patient-reported data in clinical trials. eCOA improves clinical trials by enhancing data accuracy, patient compliance, and overall trial efficiency.
What are the advantages of using eCOA in clinical research?
Using eCOA in clinical research offers several advantages. It enables real-time data capture, reduces transcription errors, improves patient engagement, enhances data quality, and allows for remote monitoring of patient outcomes. These benefits lead to more reliable and efficient clinical trials.
What types of data can be collected with eCOA?
eCOA technology allows for the collection of a wide range of patient-reported data, including symptoms, quality of life assessments, adherence to treatment, pain intensity, patient diaries, and more. It provides researchers with valuable insights into patient experiences and treatment outcomes.
Why use eCOA over paper-based assessments?
eCOA offers advantages over paper-based assessments, making it a preferred choice for clinical trials. Benefits include:
- Enhanced Data Accuracy: eCOA reduces transcription errors and improves data quality.
- Improved Patient Compliance: With electronic reminders and user-friendly interfaces, eCOA promotes better patient compliance.
- Real-time Data Capture: eCOA enables immediate access to patient-reported outcomes through real-time data collection.
- Streamlined Efficiency: eCOA eliminates manual data entry, streamlining data management in clinical research processes and reducing administrative burden.
- Remote Monitoring and Data Collection: eCOA facilitates remote access, allowing for efficient monitoring and data collection without frequent site visits.
Does Clinical ink support BYOD for eCOA?
Yes. By supporting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Clinical ink offers flexibility and convenience. Patients can use their familiar devices, eliminating the need for additional hardware provisioning. Clinical ink ensures data security and privacy by implementing robust encryption and authentication measures, safeguarding patient information throughout the BYOD process.
Does Clinical ink support connected sensors and devices as part of data collection?
Yes, Clinical ink supports the integration of connected sensors and devices for real-time data collection in clinical trials. This includes wearable in clinical trials biosensors, activity trackers, and other medical devices. The integration enables objective measurements, monitoring vital signs, and provides valuable insights into patient health and treatment outcomes. Clinical ink ensures data security and compliance throughout the process, enhancing the depth and accuracy of collected data for more meaningful clinical trial results.
