WHO WE ARE
The eClinical Forum is a global network of peers. It provides a non‐competitive environment for innovation, learning and collaboration in clinical research.
The EUCROF and eClinical Forum Electronic Informed Consent (eConsent) Joint Task Force are pleased to announce the publication of the eConsent Implementation Guide (version 1). The joint task force was formed in 2019 with a view to look at some of the barriers to adoption of eConsent considering the benefits to stakeholders.
eConsent offers remote electronic options for informing and consenting trial participants of a clinical trial, this being a particularly useful capability especially during the pandemic period when site visits are reduced.
This is the ONE FILE that you need to perform an eSRA Assessment.
We are pleased to announce the details of our next Virtual Global Workshop on 4-18 May 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 in 2020 were a great success and this one will be even better! We have made sure that sessions are as convenient as possible for the different timezones across the world by limiting the duration of sessions and offering more regional sessions. Learning from each other is what we do best and we will be introducing a number of ways to increase interactivity during the workshop (although nothing can replace the networking and comeraderie of an eCF face-to-face meeting!).

The eClinical Forum is a peer networking group run by its members for its members. Our newsletter provides important information and facts about the eClinical Forum. Read about the philosophy and objectives of the group, the eCF community and the work it has done, the teams that are active and what our members say. There is nothing quite like the eClinical Forum.
We have recently learnt that fraudulent Emails have been sent out with eclinicalforum.org addresses. The security issue has now been fixed, however, please be vigilant if you have received Emails during April and May purportedly from the eClinical Forum if they are asking for payment or personal information.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
The Virtual Workshop on May 11-13 that replaced the planned face-to-face Spring Workshops in Helsinki, Finland and Princeton, NJ was a huge success. It was attended by over 130 members from around the globe, representing 46 member companies -- many of whom would not have been able to attend a face-to-face meeting and this was their first eCF workshop. 4 EMA inspectors and several guests also attended. Evaluations gave the workshop a 4.3/5.0 which is lower than our face-to-face workshops, but for our first virtual workshop we are happy with this grade! A few comments from the evaluations: "Always an excellent group with many real experts. The interactions are very good." "Congratulations on an excellent event. Everything worked well. Sure, we missed the networking and evening events, but this worked well." "eClinical Forum is a fantastic source of information about the landscape of eClinical today." "eCF continues to be incredible value for money"
We are planning for another Virtual Workshop in Autumn 2020 (the week of October 12-16) and hoping to return to face-to-face workshops for Spring 2021. We now have a lot of good ideas for improvements for our 2nd Virtual Workshop! If anyone wants to make suggestions, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!!
The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the Public release of the “eCF Requirements V2019PR” 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.
A lot has happened in electronic support for clinical research in the last 20 years ... and eClinical Forum has been there discussing it all! We are pleased to be celebrating our 20th anniversary year, stronger than ever with 45+ member companies (and growing), meetings on 3 continents, global webinars that have been attended by members in over 25 countries, very active project teams, meetings with regulators, and freely adding to the knowledge base of the industry. Any organization working in this space is welcome to join. Please see the membership tab on our website (www.eclinicalforum.org) or contact us for more information! email@example.com
544 responses were received to the Site Survey between 26 April 2016 and 5 August 2019. After removing 16 responses with no clinical trial experience, 528 responses were retained for analysis, Results of the survey are presented in the attached download together with comparison with 2009 results where appropriate. The intention is to post further analyses by time period and region.

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.
