Remote Data Entry

A Remote Data Entry (RDE) system is a computerized system designed for the collection of data in electronic format. The term is most commonly applied to a class of software used in the life sciences industry for collecting patient data from participants in clinical research studies -- research of new drugs and/or medical devices.

Typically, RDE systems provide:
* a graphical user interface component for data entry
* a validation component to check user data
* a reporting tool for analysis of the collected data

RDE software was started in the mid- to late-1980s as software installed locally on portable computers with modems. It has largely been replaced by a newer generation of software called Electronic Data Capture, or EDC, that provides the same type of functionality over the Internet using web pages.
