E6 (R2) was developed to address the increased scale, complexity, and cost of clinical trials, and to include the advances that have been made in electronic data recording and reporting technologies, as well as the implementation of other approaches and, in fact, encourages the implementation of improved and more efficient approaches to clinical trial design, conduct, oversight, recording and reporting while continuing to ensure human subject protection and reliability of trial results.
