NEWS FROM THE ECF

Applied Clinical Trials publishes article on eCF Requirements

Applied Clinical Trials publishes article on eCF Requirements

Applied Clinical Trials has published an article highlighting the eClinical Forum “Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials” (or simply, “eCF Requirements”: http://www.appliedclinicaltrialsonline.com/keeping-regulatory-expectations .

This set of requirements can be downloaded for free from the eCF website and can be of great assistance when developing system specifications, test suites, evaluation checklists and RFIs for systems that are/will be managing data for clinical research. They are based upon statements in regulatory documents (from the FDA, EMA, PMDA and ICH) 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 … and thus, through using the eCF Requirements you can save countless hours studying all the different regulatory documents.

This work is a result of the vast experience of the eCF REG members who come from a variety of different eCF Member companies. They have spent hours debating each regulation or guidance and how to word the eCF Requirements to correctly meet the needs in the regulatory document. 

The eCF Requirements V2018PR document (mapped to 14 regulatory documents) can be downloaded from www.eclinicalforum.org in the “Downloads” tab.

The eCF has also produced a free assessment tool, based on the eCF Requirements, that can be used for sites to assess if their EHR/EMR systems are suitable for originating data that could be used in a regulated clinical trial. This tool is called “eSRA” for “eSource-Readiness Assessment” and can be downloaded from the eClinical Forum website in the eSRA tab.  

At this time, the 2019 Version (mapped to an additional 9 documents) is reserved for eClinical Forum members only.  For information on becoming an eClinical Forum member (and thus having access to the eCF Requirements V2019), please see membership details at www.eclinicalforum.org/membership or send us a note at info@eclinicalforum.org and we will be happy to set up a phone meeting to discuss all the benefits that come to an organization through membership.

BoF Round-table Discussion: Considerations and challenges for electronic research data archival at sites using direct download

BoF Round-table Discussion: Considerations and challenges for electronic research data archival at sites using direct download

The implementation of new solutions to share electronically the eCRF PDFs with sites have brought up new considerations and challenges to this process.

We would like everyone to share their experiences on how the process has been implemented, as well as the challenges experienced. This will be a group discussion on the recommendations to make this process as straight forward as possible for Sites and Sponsors, while complying with requirements.

Facilitated by Carmen Jiménez, Eli Lilly

Position Paper: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials, PR1

Position Paper: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials, PR1

The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the public release of a position paper titled “Decentralized TMF Archives and The Decommissioning Of Computerised Systems Used In Clinical Trials”.  This position paper was written by a joint task force from EUCROF and the eClinical Forum, with representatives from other industry associations including ECRIN, the ePRO consortium, Medicines for Europe and the RQA.

ABOUT THE POSITION PAPER: Following the completion of a clinical trial, the essential documents that make up the TMF (Trial Master File) are retained and archived by the sponsor, the investigator and, in some cases, sub-contractors to the sponsor and/or investigator. The position paper highlights 11 key positions: seven positions concerning the archiving of the TMF and four positions concerning the archiving of the electronic data. These positions address areas where regulatory expectations are not always seen as being aligned with industry practices.

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

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.
