Birds-of-a-Feather Round Table Discussion:  U.S. National Patient Identifier (NPI) and its Impact to Clinical Trials

Birds-of-a-Feather Round Table Discussion: U.S. National Patient Identifier (NPI) and its Impact to Clinical Trials

August 18, 2020

Presenter/Facilitator:  Ken Light, Clinscape

In 1996, HIPAA legislation called for the development of a national patient identifier system that would give each person in the United States a permanently assigned, unique number to be used across the entire spectrum of the national healthcare system.   That project was never funded by congress, but just last year (June, 2019) Congress voted to appropriate $99 billion dollars to an HHS bill that included creation of a National Patient Identifier.

Ken will review this topic, and oversee a group dialog around the benefits, challenges, and impact related to healthcare and clinical trials.

Technology Showcase: eClinical Solutions -- Automating the Clinical Data Pipeline for Enhanced Data Review & Analytics

Thursday 23 July 2020

There has been a dramatic increase in clinical data types, sources and systems in recent years enabling new insights into patient experiences while also presenting challenges in consolidating, standardizing and analyzing these new data streams.  The tools for centralizing, integrating, mapping and analyzing data have not kept pace with research and are causing cycle time delays and require numerous manual processes.  This technology showcase will describe how new platforms like the elluminate Clinical Data Platform are automating the ingestion of data from numerous eClinical systems and sources, enabling faster data mapping and standardization, supporting risk based data review and advancing both clinical and operational analytics.

eCF Autumn 2020 Virtual Workshop Planned

Week of October 12-16 2020

Following the success of our Spring Virtual Workshop (see article below), we are now planning for an Autumn 2020 Virtual Workshop. This will replace face-to-face meetings in Asia, Europe and North America due to continued concern for our members safety during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is our hope that we will be able to resume face-to-face workshops in 2021 as our members have expressed their desire to get back to "getting together" in person once it is appropriate to do that, as they say "nothing can replace the networking and comeraderie of an eCF face-to-face meeting".

The Autumn 2020 Virtual Workshop will build on our success, learnings, and suggestions for improvement from the Spring Virtual Workshop. We plan to have more interactive sessions, more sessions that are regional-based to allow a better time-of-day for most participants, have some global sessions to allow for the valuable global interaction, and spread it over a full week with a few hours/day. We are currently in the planning stage and welcome suggestions to discussion topics via info@eclinicalforum.org as well as considering all suggestions submitted with the Spring workshop evaluations.

Please mark your calendars for Oct 12-16 2020 ... and stay tuned for more detailed information as we develop it!

Birds-of-a-Feather Webinar: Real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE)

July 8, 2020

According to the FDA’s website, “Real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE) are playing an increasing role in health care decisions.”  And a recent survey by the eClinical Forum showed that most respondents believe that RWD and RWE will become much more important in clinical research over the next few years.  As a result, many questions have arisen regarding the use cases, data sources, quality of these sources, regulatory guidance documents and so on. The goal of this “Birds of a Feather” session is to present some basic information on these topics and to present a few case examples to illustrate how RWD and RWE are playing an increasingly important role in research.

Success! eClinical Forum 2020 Spring Meetings replaced with Virtual Global Workshop 11-13 May 2020

The Virtual Workshop on May 11-13 that replaced the planned face-to-face Spring Workshops in Helsinki, Finland and Princeton, NJ was a huge success.  It was attended by over 130 members from around the globe, representing 46 member companies -- many of whom would not have been able to attend a face-to-face meeting and this was their first eCF workshop. 4 EMA inspectors and several guests also attended. Evaluations gave the workshop a 4.3/5.0 which is lower than our face-to-face workshops, but for our first virtual workshop we are happy with this grade!  A few comments from the evaluations: "Always an excellent group with many real experts.  The interactions are very good."  "Congratulations on an excellent event.  Everything worked well.  Sure, we missed the networking and evening events, but this worked well."  "eClinical Forum is a fantastic source of information about the landscape of eClinical today."  "eCF continues to be incredible value for money"

We are planning for another Virtual Workshop in Autumn 2020 (the week of October 12-16) and hoping to return to face-to-face workshops for Spring 2021. We now have a lot of good ideas for improvements for our 2nd Virtual Workshop! If anyone wants to make suggestions, please send to info@eclinicalforum.org. Thanks!!

Bird-of-a-Feather Webinar: Agile Development for Clinical Research Software

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Agile computing methods and tools are used in almost all software development today. Alan Yeomans, Quality Manager at Viedoc Technologies AB, will address some of the key issues involved when using agile methods and tools for the development of clinical research software. The theory behind how agile software development can be used for clinical research software will be followed with an example of a working development methodology incorporating agile methods and tools – how does a real software development organisation implement these methods and tools while maintaining regulatory compliance?

Birds-of-a-Feather Webinar: Tufts-eClinical Solutions "Data Strategy and Transformation Study Results"

Thursday April 30 2020

eClinical Solutions, a member of the eClinical Forum, has collaborated with the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development in 2019 to survey pharmaceutical companies about their evolving clinical data demands and the tactics they are employing to manage and leverage their data. Highlights reveal new strategies and digital transformation initiatives being taken. This webinar will share key results from the survey as well as insights and opportunities to use this data to further clinical data architectures.
