Automating Invoicing in EDC/CTMS: Study Build and Design Considerations

Automating invoicing is a significant benefit when using electronic data capture (EDC) systems and clinical trial management systems (CTMS). Understanding the extent and limitations of invoicing is an important consideration when selecting an EDC or CTMS. In multi-site studies, invoicing can become a tedious and time-consuming task when tracking is done using spreadsheets. Leveraging an integrated solution makes this process more streamlined and efficient. In this article, Karina Loyo and Alicia A. Browner of Prelude Dynamics include recommendations for integrating this functionality into a study, things to consider, and questions to ask.
