Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems are being used increasingly by clinical investigative sites; and there is a growing expectation, by regulatory agencies, for clinical trial sponsors to verify that EHR systems comply with requirements to protect confidentiality and provide accurate and reliable data for the use in a regulated research environment. eClinical Forum provides a free tool to assist sponsors and sites in deternining if their EHR systems are appropriate to source clinical research data.

This very important topic has been featured in 2 prominent industry magazines:

Applied Clinical Trials (English, December 2018) has published an article on the eCF eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA). eSRA is a list of questions, based on regulation and guidance from FDA, EMA, PMDA, and ICH for Clinical Research sites to self-assess their readiness to provide data from their electronic health records systems. This data may be electronically supplied to sponsors, or manually entered into a sponsor system, however if it originates in a healthcare system, then sponsors are responsible for assessing that these systems are appropriate.

For complete article, please see Applied Clinical Trial website:

PHARMSTAGE (Japanese, October 2019) has published an article titled “Assessment of Reliability of Electronic Health Records Data Used in Clinical Trials”. It is a six-page article to discuss global regulations on EHR data, describe what eSRA is and how it is used.
