Best Practice Document on Investigator’s Signature

Best Practice Document on Investigator’s Signature

The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the release of the "Investigator’s signature on electronic Case Report Forms (eCRFs), PR2.1"

About the Best Practice Document: There is increased scrutiny by regulatory agencies on the collection of investigator’s signatures as evidence of the overall oversight on the eCRF is reported to the sponsor.  eClinical Forum PI Signature Working Group was formed in March 2021 to update the best practice document originally issued in 2017 by identifying best practices that are based on compliance to regulatory requirements and on risks such as reputation, credibility, legal liability of the data being used by the sponsor.

Member Release: "Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials" MR2022

MR2022, 4-April-2022

Member Release:  "Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials" MR2022

ABOUT THE ECF REQUIREMENTSThe eClinical Forum has updated their 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.  We have reviewed regulatory documents from the FDA, EMA, PMDA, MHRA, NMPA and ICH to produce this set of requirements. Each Requirement has as its basis one or more statements from one or more of these regulatory documents. The Requirements can be used to determine if systems that data which will become part of a regulated clinical trial are consistent with regulatory requirements and if systems and process that manage these data have the necessary features.

"When should audit trail begin?"

"When should audit trail begin?"

Several members of the eClinical Forum's Regulatory Advisory Group have published an article in Applied Clinical Trials on "When should audit trail begin?"  It is a discussion of the regulatory history behind audit trails and its interpretation as it relates to clinical research data originating or residing in EDC or eCOA systems.

eCF Webinar: Assessing e-Investigator Site Files for compliance with regulatory expectations (eCF eISFQ)

eCF Webinar: Assessing e-Investigator Site Files for compliance with regulatory expectations (eCF eISFQ)

The intention of this webinar is to introduce you to the newest eCF Site Assessment -- the draft eInvestigator Site File Questionnaire (eISFQ). Each question in the eISFQ is based on regulatory authority document statements. It is intended for sites to self-assess their eISF such that sponsors can determine if it is suitable to use for their regulated clinical trials. The eCF eISFQ Team intends to start a pilot with the the eISFQ in late 1Q '23. We would like to present this information to our members to get your feedback and to inspire interest in participating in the pilot.

eCF Webinar: Artificial intelligence can improve patients’ experience in decentralized clinical trials

eCF Webinar: Artificial intelligence can improve patients’ experience in decentralized clinical trials

The clinical trial industry is undergoing a rapid transition toward decentralization, where some or all health assessments are performed remotely in participants’ homes instead of in medical centers. Adopting artificial intelligence in this setting can empower more patients to enroll in trials, successfully complete them without burden, and submit high-fidelity assessments of their health. In this talk, the presenters will discuss insights from their recent article in Nature Medicine on this topic.  The article can be viewed at: Artificial intelligence can improve patients’ experience in decentralized clinical trials | Nature Medicine
