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.
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.

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.

eCF Technology Showcase: BSI Life Sciences - "Onboarding a combined CTMS and eTMF”
The digitalization of clinical trials and operations has been at the forefront of pharmaceutical and med-tech modernization strategies over the last two decades. However, many companies are still struggling to digitize their clinical operations for various reasons: old habits, fear of adopting and rolling out an electronic solution, potential delays on deadlines, or concerns about quality and compliance. eCF Member BSI will share their thoughts on why a unified CTMS and eTMF is crucial in running clinical trials in the age of digitization and technology, while providing examples with their CTMS and eTMF.
