The Rest is Noise: The Promise of eCOA in Increasing Signal Detection

Many clinical trials rely on clinician-administered assessments, which are subject to variability and error. MedAvante’s research has shown that electronic clinician outcome assessments (eCOA) administered with the Virgil platform demonstrate substantially reduced error rates compared to paper-based assessments. Using eCOA can standardize assessments and reduce error, thereby strengthening signal detection.
