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.
Electronic solutions for patient-reported and clinician-reported outcomes provide rich metadata that can be mined for additional insights describing trial performance and driving risk-based monitoring. We will explore the use of this eCOA meta data in fraud detection, and other analytics insights and how these data might translate to risk indices to inform risk-based monitoring activities.
Networking with peers has never been more important in order to stay current, collaborate on shared challenges and influence the future. The eClinical Forum offers a unique, non-commercial networking environment to learn, exchange information and ideas, collaborate on shared initiatives.
This meeting will be of relevance to those with an interest in advancing clinical research from:
The eClinical Forum offers a unique, non-commercial networking environment to learn, exchange information and ideas, collaborate on shared initiatives and to influence the future. The following areas will be discussed.
The eClinical Forum offers a unique, non-commercial networking environment to learn, exchange information and ideas, collaborate on shared initiatives and to influence the future. A comment from our Spring 2019 meeting: “Great Forum again! Relevant topics and participants are SMEs or at least willing to share experiences.”
The meeting starts at 1pm on Mon Oct 14 2019 and finishes at 3pm on Wed Oct 16 2019. Each evening there will be networking social events included as part of your meeting registration.
This webinar will be a comprehensive, deep dive into the overall RFI and Vendor Qualification solution offered by the Diligent Qualification Platform.
Attendees will be informed of the true costs of the RFI and Qualification effort from both sides of the table, the sponsor and the provider. Attendees will also be taken through the improved, simplified and more efficient process available with the centralized solution offered by Diligent via a short platform demonstration.
eClinical Forum does not endorse any vendor solution but rather offers technology showcases to our Technology Vendors as a way for all eCF members to get to know each other. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information.
Succeeding with CTMS – how can a modern CTMS help you to ensure successful trial execution
Knowing how and when to use clinical trial management software/systems (CTMS) and how to integrate data from other eclinical systems can help ensure successful trial execution. This tech showcase will highlight what you can expect from a modern CTMS including successful integration ideas and techniques.

The use of ePRO in clinical studies presents an interesting challenge when data recorded by patients and site staff needs to change from initial entry. To the uninitiated, it would be logical to assume that once data is entered, it is never changed. Or at the very least, the data is cumulatively recorded in 21 CRF Part 11-compliant audit trails. This interactive discussion will focus on the data integrity and custody controls required by regulators, for changes that occur more often that we might think.

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. You can download the position paper here: Position Paper: Trial Master File Archiving and the Decommissioning of Computerised Systems Used in Clinical Trials, PR1 (eclinicalforum.org)
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.
