eSRA: A Project to Self-Evaluate the GCP Compliance of Systems Holding Source Data

 

It is important that electronic health record systems (EHRS) that will supply source data for clinical research be designed and maintained to meet regulatory requirements. The eSRA project is developing a free tool that vendors and sites can use to quickly and easily evaluate their systems once for all sponsors, CROs, and regulators.

eSRA (eSource Readiness Assessment) Handbook and Assessment Template

Version 2019

This is the ONE FILE that you need to perform an eSRA EMR/EHR Assessment.

- Sites should complete an eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA) to self-assess their healthcare computerized systems (EHR/EMR) for readiness to originate or handle electronic data that could become part of a clinical research study.

- Sponsors/CROs will find useful information in the Handbook in order to evaluate a completed eSRA from a site, to determine if data that originated in the site's healthcare computerized system complies with clinical research regulations

- Download the Handbook file and save to your computer. The instructions are in section 3 and the assessment is in section 5. Sites should complete the assessment and email it to their sponsors.

Regulatory documents used as a basis for the eClinical Forum eSource Readiness Assessment (eSRA)

Release 2019

eCF eSRA Release 2019 is based on regulatory documents from FDA (USA), EMA (European Union), PMDA (Japan) and ICH (International). The eClinical Forum will continue to monitor new releases and updates of regulatory documents from these agencies to determine if the eSRA template questions should be updated.

Determining if Data from Electronic Health Record Systems Can Be Trusted in a Clinical Trial Setting

Applied Clinical Trial's article on eCFs eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA)

Applied Clinical Trials has published an article on the eCF eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA). eSRA is a list of questions, based on regulation and guidance from FDA, EMA, PMDA, and ICH for Clinical Research sites to self-assess their readiness to provide data from their electronic health records systems. This data may be electronically supplied to sponsors, or manually entered into a sponsor system, however if it originates in a healthcare system, then sponsors are responsible for assessing that these systems are appropriate.

Investigator Site Survey .. Please Participate

Partnering for Success

The ongoing Investigator Site Survey survey is open to all site staff involved in clinical trials. By participating in this survey, you will help us to better understand the experience and needs of site staff with clinical trial systems and processes. This is not eSRA -- it is a voluntary survey -- it is not an assessment.  (If you are looking for eSRA, please download the Handbook below).  GO TO THE SURVEY. Expand the article to read more...

eSRA Slides suitable to present to your organization

At recent eCF meetings we have discussed the eSource-Readiness Assessment (eSRA) and the desire that it is used widely by sponsors to assist their sites in assessing the appropriateness of their EHRsystems for providing data for clinical trials. At the eCF meeting at Janssen in Brussels in May 2019, Sumarni Oetringer and Martijn Griep presented a ppt presentation they had created to provide information for J&J … showing how eSRA can be used to save the sponsors and sites a lot of time and effort.  There has been a request to make this ppt deck available to all for use in presenting the case to use eSRA to your organization. Sumarni has modified it so that it is more general and not J&J-specific.

If you are a site and you some of your sponsors are not using eSRA, please pass this presentation on to them. If you are a sponsor or CRO and you are not (yet) using eSRA, please present this to those in your organization who are doing site assessments.

Thanks for spreading the word!  The more organizations that use eSRA, the more efficient and time-saving it becomes for all Sponsors, CROs and Sites.

eSRA Use is Growing!

Feb 2018 Statistics on use of eSRA around the globe

eClinical Forum has provided a free assessment tool for clinical research sites to self-assess their computerized systems for readiness to originate or handle data that could become part of a regulated clinical trial. This tool is called the "eSource-Readiness Assessment" or "eSRA" and has been available since August 2015. As of February 2018, it has been used by over 1140 sites in 47 countries.

BoF Webinar: EHR to EDC for Automated Population of CRF

Where is your organization on the EHR to EDC journey?  Not started, early prototypes, other?

What is the principal value your organization expects from EHR to EDC one day? 

  • Getting patient data sooner than typical industry 8+ day lag time from visit to EDC data entry?
  • Higher quality data leading to less “back and forth”?  
  • Direct cost savings on SDV as data sourced from EHR doesn’t need to be SDV'd?

Come join us as we cover a perspective of some of the work happening across the industry to take advantage of this valuable Data Source.
