eSRA (eSource Readiness Assessment) Handbook and Assessment Questionnaire: ENGLISH Version 2021.1 updated on 15-March-2021.
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
- 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.
Note: Version 2021 was released on 15-March-2021. Version 2020 is still available, however we prefer that everyone immediately start using version 2021.

When you have completed your eSRA ... Please Help! Be a part of the solution -- An easy way for you to participate in the improvement of our e-clinical environment! We welcome your feedback on the assessment tool. We would also like to use your completed assessment, in an anonymized way, as part of a summary of the ability and needs of site's computerized systems. We are compiling statistics regarding site abilities, to provide information to software vendors and others, regarding areas for improvement. It is our goal that all healthcare systems will become compliant with clinical research regulations and guidances. Please help us -- send your completed assessment to eSRA@eClinicalForum.org You are welcome to strip off your organization identifying information before sending, however, this is not necessary as we promise to not use this portion of the assessment for our summary purposes. Feedback is always welcome (both positive and critical) -- please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Public Release: Audit Trail Review: Key Tool to Ensure Data Integrity Version 1.0
The Society for Clinical Data Management (SCDM) and eClinical Forum (eCF) Joint Task Force are pleased to announce the publication of an industry position paper “AUDIT TRAIL REVIEW: A KEY TOOL TO ENSURE DATA INTEGRITY” final version based on Industry Feedback. With various electronic data capture modalities becoming the norm and the growing regulatory focus on data collection traceability, audit trails which capture the who, what, when, and why of electronic data entry and amendments are a critical tool. This paper outlines an industry perspective on maximizing the value of implementing the targeted, routine review of these extremely large datasets. It provides recommendations on risk-based use cases for audit trail review (ATR) and the corresponding desired reporting criteria, with suggestions on when to use visualizations and exception report listings to generate key, actionable insights.
eCF Free Public Webinar: Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials, and associated Investigator Site eSource-Readiness Assessment
The eClinical Forum is pleased to offer a free public webinar – the same as was presented to the FDA CDER Health IT Board on 6-April-2021 – to provide information on our 2 free tools: The “eCF Requirements” (Requirements for electronic data for regulated clinical trials) and eSRA (Site eSource-Readiness Assessment).
REGISTRATION IS OPEN: eClinical Forum Virtual Spring Workshop, 4-18 May 2021
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!).
