The importance of using eCOA to capture trustworthy data in a convenient way for patients around the world has never been more imperative or evident – and by sharing the knowledge we have gained from over 20 years of providing eCOA solutions in an educational and non-promotional way, we hope to advance the conversation and bring the benefits of eCOA to as many patients as possible.”
