BoF Round-Table Discussion: "eClinical Standards - Best practices for implementing"

Tuesday, 21 September 2021

BoF Round-Table Discussion: "eClinical Standards - Best practices for implementing"

This is a round-table discussion. Participants are encouraged to share experiences, make comments, ask questions, and contribute to the discussion. We will be discussing: “Can we develop best practices for implementing standards across sponsors and CROs of all sizes to drive efficiencies that result in medical advancements getting to patients faster?”

  • Can we facilitate a mechanism to share standards across organizations to avoid process changes from one trial to the next?
  • Can we track standard utilization across organizations to be data driven about when and how updates are needed?
  • With the increase in digital trials, what additional standards should we be considering?
  • What does an optimal standards committee look like? 

eCF Focus Session:  Audit Trail Review in Practice

Wednesday, 18-August-2021

eCF Focus Session:  Audit Trail Review in Practice

The eClinical Forum published a joint paper with SCDM in April 2021, titled “Audit Trail Review: Key Tool to Ensure Data Integrity”.  (If you missed it, you can download it here: Public Release: Audit Trail Review: Key Tool to Ensure Data Integrity Version 1.0 (eclinicalforum.org) )  Now that members have had time to review the paper and perhaps discuss with colleagues, we thought it is a good time to hear what different members are doing, or are planning to do, regarding audit trail review. This focus session will not be discussing the paper, but rather will be discussing what practices around audit trail review our members are taking.

This is a two-hour focus session. The first hour will be presentations of case-studies from eClinical Forum members. The second hour will be a round-table discussion.

"When should audit trail begin?"

eCF published in Applied Clinical Trials 16-June-2021

"When should audit trail begin?"

Several members of the eClinical Forum's Regulatory Advisory Group have published an article in Applied Clinical Trials on "When should audit trail begin?"  It is a discussion of the regulatory history behind audit trails and its interpretation as it relates to clinical research data originating or residing in EDC or eCOA systems.

We welcome feedback! Please send to: REG@eclinicalforum.org

eCF BoF Round-table: Utilization of Scribes for eCOA

This is a round-table discussion. Participants are encouraged to share experiences, make comments, ask questions, and contribute to the discussion. We will be discussing “The utilization of scribes is needed for the conduct of clinical assessments within eCOA.  Therefore, eCOA needs to be built in a manner that meets the regulatory requirements for scribing, to ensure all individuals participating in the assessment are audit trailed.”

eCF Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials PR2020

eCF Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials PR2020

The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the Public release of the "eCF Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials PR2020"

ABOUT THE ECF REQUIREMENTS:  The eClinical Forum has produced a set of Requirements, which are based upon statements in regulatory documents that pertain to the design, development, implementation, and management of electronic systems that support clinical research data as well as those statements that pertain to the handling of data that will be used in a regulated clinical trial.  We have reviewed regulatory documents from the FDA, EMA, PMDA, NMPA and ICH to produce this set of requirements. Each Requirement has as its basis one or more statements from one or more of these regulatory documents. The Requirements can be used to determine if systems that data which will become part of a regulated clinical trial are consistent with regulatory requirements and if systems and process that manage these data have the necessary features.

Birds-of-a-Feather Round Table Discussion: “When does audit trail begin?”

Tuesday, 16-March-2021 at UTC 08:00 and UTC 16:00

Birds-of-a-Feather Round Table Discussion:  “When does audit trail begin?”

Audit trails create a step-by-step record of data back to its source. It is utilized when the integrity and confidence of the datapoint has critical/legal significance. It is important to determine and declare when data entry becomes “real” data. In legacy paper, data is manually recorded, but only becomes “real” when it is signed, submitted, or completed. Signatures and confirmations also exist to add additional credibility to the source. If a paper form is being filled, it is considered draft until it is declared complete by the originator. The originator has the option to crumple up the “draft” paper and start another without question. The same should hold true with electronic data entry as this webinar will discuss.
