Efficient EDC Design

Effectively transforming a protocol into a full EDC study is of paramount importance in ensuring trial success. Without a robust, user-friendly design tool, the process of building EDC studies becomes protracted and inefficient. The problem is often exacerbated by the ever-growing complexity of study designs and widely dispersed locations of study design teams. It is therefore critical for study teams to be able to design in a collaborative environment using tools that promote standards and best practices.

The Calyx EDC design tool provides web-based study design, allowing users to efficiently build Calyx EDC studies through an intuitive interface, which guides you through each aspect of the design.

Users can streamline study creation by choosing design components from a centralized repository of existing studies, which facilitates the enforcement of design standards. The robust toolset makes it easy to configure CRFs, coding dictionaries, code lists, derivations and edit checks.


  • Centralized storage and management of study designs
  • Promotes and supports CDISC standards for eCRF design

  • Delivered as a cloud solution, eliminating the overhead of system investment and maintenance issues

Endless Possibilities (Nearly)

Benefits of the Calyx design tool for visit structure include:

  • Dynamic Events and Forms allow for visits and included CRFs to be tailored to each patient
  • Repeating Events facilitate studies where the ultimate number of visits for a subject is uncertain
  • Multiple Event Schedules provide for customized visit schedules based on treatment group or study arm

Because the Calyx EDC design tool is cloud-based, users can access their studies from any computer, anywhere in the world.
