eCF Webinar: Best Practice Recommendations for Changing eCOA Data
Date: Tues 7-Dec-2021 or Wed 8-Dec-21 Duration: One hour
Open to members of the eClinical Forum, C-Path ePRO Consortium, and C-Path PRO Consortium
About This Topic: Historically, each sponsor, contract research organization (CRO), clinical site, and eCOA service provider has handled eCOA data change request (DCR) processes differently, resulting in the possibility for mixed expectations among the stakeholders and inconsistent results. In the worst-case scenario, there is the risk of findings from inspections and audits, either because control over source records did not reside as expected with the site, or because there was a lack of oversight over eCOA data changes requested by sites and performed by the eCOA service provider. There is a need for a well-defined, consistent, and balanced process for handling eCOA data change requests in clinical trials. The objective of this document is to outline best practices that will result in improved data accuracy and integrity, greater transparency amongst the different stakeholders, increased consistency throughout the clinical trials industry, and adherence to the study protocol, good clinical practices (GCP), and government regulations. The approach to eCOA data changes outlined here is focused on patient-reported outcome (PRO) data but can be applied, where appropriate, to all eCOA data, including clinician-reported data and observer-reported data.
A collaborative team comprised of Critical Path Institute’s ePRO Consortium, PRO Consortium and eClinical Forum have been meeting since early 2020 to discuss this topic and produce a best-practice recommendations paper. They will be sharing their discussions during this webinar. The associated paper is anticipated to be published during 1Q 2022.

eCF Webinar: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials.
We will be discussing a recent eCF/EUCROF positions paper:
The full history of a clinical trial describes the conduct of the trial and the quality of the data produced. Changes in technology and the evolution of regulatory expectations on electronic systems over the past two decades have resulted in a situation where additional supplementary documentation is needed to reconstruct some clinical trial activities. Many of the computerised systems used during a trial are only used during the active trial data collection stage. This period of use is shorter than the retention period required for the archiving of the essential documents of the trial. Furthermore, the documentation that makes up this history is distributed between sponsor, investigators and vendors. Data is stored locally, in the cloud, on patient devices, at vendors, and sub-vendors. Where the data is archived (sponsor, investigator, vendor), in what format (kept live or static), and for how long are issues discussed in the position paper.

eCF Round-table: Electronic Investigator Site Files (eISF)
This is a round-table discussion. Participants are encouraged to share experiences, make comments, ask questions, and contribute to the discussion. We will be discussing challenges Sponsor companies are having evaluating, monitoring and documenting a site’s eISF, and to share best practices, challenges, and ideas.
Facilitators: Ronit Elstein (Pfizer, US) Martijn Griep (Janssen, Belgium)
eCF Technology Showcase: Veeva CDB - Creating a Foundation for Digital Trial Data / Decentralized Trials
Conducting decentralized trials is an important pathway to improving patient centricity, yet they create painful data management challenges that increase costs and delay access to reliable data. As companies move toward digital trials, the number and variety of data sources grows, and visibility into your data declines. Most modern trial designs, including adaptive trials, need interim analyses which require timely access to reliable data. In this technology showcase, Veeva will share their clinical database, Veeva CDB, and demonstrate how it produces a complete and concurrent view of the clinical data. Decentralized trials run better with centralized data management that can speed database locks and support better decision-making during study conduct.
eCF Technology Showcase sessions have been requested by eCF members to provide a demonstration of products or services, and by necessity are not technology or vendor neutral. The eClinical Forum does not promote nor endorse any particular technology vendors.
