Meticulous data collection is indispensable for clinical research. Traditionally, data collection involves pen and paper materials, wherein the researcher enters data onto prespecified data collection forms. This method is cumbersome, time-consuming, and fraught with errors. With the advent of smartphone technology, it is now possible to use data collection applications for this purpose. In this review, we look at EpiCollect5, a free-to-use application that allows creation of fully customizable databases for use in clinical research.
