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.
“Birds-of-a-Feather” Webinars are provided monthly, to get those with similar interests together. Anyone from an eCF member company (around the globe!) can participate, gratis. All eCF members can suggest a topic and/or lead a discussion.
Medical Informatics (Japan Society for Medical Informatics) article on use of eSRA to assess the requirements of the Japan MHLW's "Guideline on security management for medical information systems."
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.

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.
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.
Aligning the existing eCF best practices document with the most recent regulatory expectations
The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the public release of a position paper titled “Decentralized TMF Archives and The Decommissioning Of Computerised Systems Used In Clinical Trials”. This position paper was written by a joint task force from EUCROF and the eClinical Forum, with representatives from other industry associations including ECRIN, the ePRO consortium, Medicines for Europe and the RQA.
ABOUT THE POSITION PAPER: Following the completion of a clinical trial, the essential documents that make up the TMF (Trial Master File) are retained and archived by the sponsor, the investigator and, in some cases, sub-contractors to the sponsor and/or investigator. The position paper highlights 11 key positions: seven positions concerning the archiving of the TMF and four positions concerning the archiving of the electronic data. These positions address areas where regulatory expectations are not always seen as being aligned with industry practices.
