Electronic data capture systems are utilized to collect, document, and process research data for clinical trials. Ideally, the workflow of collecting the data could be simplified by using mobile clients that enable for data acquisition at the point-of-care. Mobile phones provide a range of features to act as data acquisition unit for clinical trials. A novel approach towards an automated solution is the combination of mobile phones with near field communication (NFC) technology. This technology enables for easy-to-use data acquisition just by touching items. The aim of this work has been to design and develop an additional path for clinical data acquisition based on mobile phones and NFC technology. The system was utilized in a pilot trial and evaluated regarding usability and feasibility for clinical application.
