Methodological Question: Does the use of electronic clinical outcomes assessment (eCOA) impact rates of scoring errors as evaluated with the ISCTM working group consensus method for PANSS data?

Among the Conclusions: eCOA administrations of the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) are less susceptible to scoring inconsistencies and error compared to those administered on paper.
