Electronic source data (eSource) is a practical, resource-effective method to enhance the planning, conduct and evaluation of clinical trials. The incorporation of electronically sourced data as part of a clinical trial database is a practice that has been around for decades and continues to be common, in particular for centralized data sources such as laboratory and electrocardiogram data. In the last decade the scope of eSource has expanded with emphasis on accepting data from non-traditional sources. Technological advances in support of eSource have emerged along with questions regarding compliance. Implementing eSource across the spectrum of clinical trials can be challenging, but industry experience demonstrates that eSource produces more data, more quickly, more accurately and less expensively than traditional paper-based methods.
