Free Public Webinar: Sponsor responsibility to Assess Investigator Site Systems that may originate source for clinical trials & the free eSRA tool

Offered 2 times on either Feb 25 or Feb 26 2020

Free Public Webinar: Sponsor responsibility to Assess Investigator Site Systems that may originate source for clinical trials & the free eSRA tool

Presenter:  Kelley Olree, Study Manager – Pfizer, and eClinical Forum eSRA Team

This webinar will discuss:

  • What the Sponsor’s responsibility is regarding using data that has originated in an Investigator Site system (Electronic Health Records (EHR) or Electronic Medical Records (EMR) according to different health authorities
  • Benefits of all sites and all sponsors and all CROs using a common assessment tool
  • The eClinical Forum, a non-profit, non-commercial discussion/action group comprised of members of the Pharmaceutical and Clinical Research Services industry, along with sites and academia, have developed a regulatory-based assessment tool for clinical research sites to determine if their computer system (EHR, EMR, etc) is appropriate to hold regulated clinical trial data. It has been available for free for over 4 years and is currently being used around the globe by many sponsors and thousands of sites.
  • The eClinical Forum’s free “eSource-Readiness Assessment” (eSRA) that assists the sponsor/site in determining if the site system is appropriate for sourcing clinical research records
  • How a Sponsor/CRO can incorporate eSRA into their processes

eSRA: Can Your Site Electronic Health Record Systems (EHR) be Used to Source Clinical Research Data?

EUCROF 5th European Conference: Feb 10-11 2020

This presentation on the eClinical Forum's eSRA (eSource Readiness Assessment) will be given by Martijn Griep, eClinical Forum Representative & Associate Director, Janssen, The Netherlands. It will be on Feb 11, 2020 at 15:00

    eCF Webinar:  Best Practice Recommendations for Changing eCOA Data

    eCF Webinar:  Best Practice Recommendations for Changing eCOA Data

    Historically, each sponsor, contract research organization (CRO), clinical site, and eCOA service provider has handled eCOA data change request (DCR) processes differently, resulting in the possibility for mixed expectations among the stakeholders and inconsistent results.   In the worst-case scenario, there is the risk of findings from inspections and audits, either because control over source records did not reside as expected with the site, or because there was a lack of oversight over eCOA data changes requested by sites and performed by the eCOA service provider.  There is a need for a well-defined, consistent, and balanced process for handling eCOA data change requests in clinical trials.  The objective of this document is to outline best practices that will result in improved data accuracy and integrity, greater transparency amongst the different stakeholders, increased consistency throughout the clinical trials industry, and adherence to the study protocol, good clinical practices (GCP), and government regulations. The approach to eCOA data changes outlined here is focused on patient-reported outcome (PRO) data but can be applied, where appropriate, to all eCOA data, including clinician-reported data and observer-reported data.   

    A collaborative team comprised of Critical Path Institute’s ePRO Consortium, PRO Consortium and eClinical Forum have been meeting since early 2020 to discuss this topic and produce a best-practice recommendations paper. They will be sharing their discussions during this webinar. The associated paper is anticipated to be published during 1Q 2022.

  • eCF Webinar: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials. (11/01/2022 (UTC+00:00) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London)
    eCF Webinar: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials.

    eCF Webinar: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials.

    We will be discussing a recent eCF/EUCROF positions paper: 

    The full history of a clinical trial describes the conduct of the trial and the quality of the data produced. Changes in technology and the evolution of regulatory expectations on electronic systems over the past two decades have resulted in a situation where additional supplementary documentation is needed to reconstruct some clinical trial activities. Many of the computerised systems used during a trial are only used during the active trial data collection stage. This period of use is shorter than the retention period required for the archiving of the essential documents of the trial. Furthermore, the documentation that makes up this history is distributed between sponsor, investigators and vendors. Data is stored locally, in the cloud, on patient devices, at vendors, and sub-vendors. Where the data is archived (sponsor, investigator, vendor), in what format (kept live or static), and for how long are issues discussed in the position paper.  You can download the position paper here: Position Paper: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials, PR1 (eclinicalforum.org)
