BoF Round-Table Discussion Webinar: ePRO Data Changes

Facilitator: Tom Haag, Cardinal Solutions Consulting

The use of ePRO in clinical studies presents an interesting challenge when data recorded by patients and site staff needs to change from initial entry. To the uninitiated, it would be logical to assume that once data is entered, it is never changed. Or at the very least, the data is cumulatively recorded in 21 CRF Part 11-compliant audit trails. This interactive discussion will focus on the data integrity and custody controls required by regulators, for changes that occur more often that we might think.

eClinical Forum releases eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA) V2019

eClinical Forum releases eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA) V2019

We are happy to announce an updated release of the eSRA (eSource Readiness Assessment) Handbook and Assessment Form. This 2019 version is an update, based on updates to FDA, EMA, PMDA and ICH regulatory documents. We encourage all Sponsors to use this assessment to assist in determining if data that originated in an investigator site system is suitable for inclusion in a clinical trial. We encourage all Investigator Sites to use this assessment tool and provide the resulting report to all Sponsors they are working with, thus avoiding the need to complete different assessments for each Sponsor. Full details of what this valuable tool provides can be found in the eSRA Handbook.

    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)
