eCF Webinar: Connecting Clinical Research and Healthcare: The Vulcan HL7 Accelerator Opportunity

Wednesday, 17-Nov-2021

eCF Webinar: Connecting Clinical Research and Healthcare: The Vulcan HL7 Accelerator Opportunity

HL7 FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) is a standard describing data formats and elements and an application programming interface for exchanging electronic health records. The standard was created by the Health Level Seven International health-care standards organization.  Vulcan is an HL7 FHIR Accelerator that brings together stakeholders from across the translational and clinical research communities in order to bridge existing gaps between clinical care and clinical research, strategically connect industry collaboratives, maximize collective resources, and deliver integrated tools and resources.  HL7 FHIR is the path forward to bridge clinical care and clinical research. A global collaboration between all translational and clinical research stakeholders to co-develop out the standard, it will allow for a reproducible, scalable process for data exchange. The presenters will share not only the conclusions drawn from use cases developed up to this point, but will also provide insight into the future direction and priorities of Vulcan.  

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.

"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 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.

AGENDA AVAILABLE: eClinical Forum Virtual Workshop, 19-28 October 2021

We are pleased to announce the details of our next Virtual Global Workshop on 19-28 October 2021. The virtual workshop will include presentation, discussion and working sessions and is open to participants from any member company in any region.

Our virtual workshops have been a great success and this one will be even better! The sessions have been optimised to accommodate our members from around the world by spreading the meeting over 6 days (19-21 October and 26-28 October), limiting the duration of each meeting day to 2 hours and by offering 2 sessions a day (at 8:00 UTC and 16:00 UTC). Learning from each other is what we do best, and the workshop will provide opportunity for collaboration and exchange through breakout groups to contribute to the work of the eClinical Forum, round table discussions on hot topics and time for Q&A.  Of course, nothing can replace the networking and camaraderie of a face-to-face eCF meeting, but we will come close! REGISTER HERE
