What is the difference between the V2020 and V2019 eSRA?
While several additional regulatory documents were mapped to the eSRA questions, they did not significantly change eSRA between V2019 and V2020. No questions were added or deleted. Some question text were modified to improve clarity. Please download the file showing each question with it's change.
eSRA (eSource Readiness Assessment) Handbook and Assessment Template
This is the ONE FILE that you need to perform an eSRA Assessment.
- Sites should complete an eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA) to self-assess their healthcare computerized systems (e.g. EHR/EMR) for readiness to originate or handle electronic data that could become part of a clinical research study.
- Sponsors/CROs will find useful information in the Handbook in order to evaluate a completed eSRA from a site, to determine if data that originated in the site's healthcare computerized system complies with clinical research regulations
This Version 2020.2 has had minor updates to clarify the text from V2020. The eSRA questionnaire has not been updated in V2020.2, and will be updated as per the annual schedule and released in March 2021.
- Download the Handbook file and save to your computer. The instructions are in section 3 and the assessment is in section 5. Sites should complete the assessment and email it to their sponsors.

Webinar on “Sponsor responsibility to Assess Investigator Site Systems that may originate source for clinical trials & the free eSRA tool”
On 25-Feb-2020, Kelley Olree of Pfizer and eClinical Forum's eSRA Team, presented a very informative and insightful webinar on “Sponsor responsibility to Assess Investigator Site Systems that may originate source for clinical trials & the free eSRA tool”. One participant sent us a note following the webinar "Let me congratulate you for the eSRA Form and the webcast shared yesterday. I’m pretty sure it will become an international standard."
Birds-of-a-Feather Round Table Discussion: U.S. National Patient Identifier (NPI) and its Impact to Clinical Trials
Presenter/Facilitator: Ken Light, Clinscape
In 1996, HIPAA legislation called for the development of a national patient identifier system that would give each person in the United States a permanently assigned, unique number to be used across the entire spectrum of the national healthcare system. That project was never funded by congress, but just last year (June, 2019) Congress voted to appropriate $99 billion dollars to an HHS bill that included creation of a National Patient Identifier.
Ken will review this topic, and oversee a group dialog around the benefits, challenges, and impact related to healthcare and clinical trials.
eCF Autumn 2020 Virtual Workshop Planned
Following the success of our Spring Virtual Workshop (see article below), we are now planning for an Autumn 2020 Virtual Workshop. This will replace face-to-face meetings in Asia, Europe and North America due to continued concern for our members safety during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is our hope that we will be able to resume face-to-face workshops in 2021 as our members have expressed their desire to get back to "getting together" in person once it is appropriate to do that, as they say "nothing can replace the networking and comeraderie of an eCF face-to-face meeting".
The Autumn 2020 Virtual Workshop will build on our success, learnings, and suggestions for improvement from the Spring Virtual Workshop. We plan to have more interactive sessions, more sessions that are regional-based to allow a better time-of-day for most participants, have some global sessions to allow for the valuable global interaction, and spread it over a full week with a few hours/day. We are currently in the planning stage and welcome suggestions to discussion topics via email@example.com as well as considering all suggestions submitted with the Spring workshop evaluations.
Please mark your calendars for Oct 12-16 2020 ... and stay tuned for more detailed information as we develop it!
