April 27-29 2020:  Helsinki Finland, hosted by Signant Health

May 11-13 2020:  New Jersey, USA hosted by Diligent Pharma

But that doesn't mean we won't be "getting together"! We are announcing our "Virtual Global Workshop" for 11-13 May 2020.

Birds-of-a-Feather Webinar & Discussion:  Investigator Oversight on eCOA data - what is a good evidence?

Birds-of-a-Feather Webinar & Discussion: Investigator Oversight on eCOA data - what is a good evidence?

January 29 2020; facilitated by Cinzia Piccini of Eli Lilly

As there are no regulatory detailed expectations on oversight by investigators on eCOA data, multiple approaches have been adopted across the industry (from log-in as evidence to notification/alerts or investigator signature on eCOA data). In general, as per other data sources, oversight for eCOA data should be continual and not once at the end of the study. In addition, oversight activities should be right-sized according to the criticality of the data and protocol requirements for compliance. Evidence of the oversight should be available during the conduct of the trial and enduring for the entire retention period.  The aim of this webinar is to allow participants to share different approaches and any knowledge of current expectations by regulatory inspectors.

Free Public Webinar: Sponsor responsibility to Assess Investigator Site Systems that may originate source for clinical trials & the free eSRA tool

Presenter:  Kelley Olree, Study Manager – Pfizer, and eClinical Forum eSRA Team

This webinar will discuss:

  • What the Sponsor’s responsibility is regarding using data that has originated in an Investigator Site system (Electronic Health Records (EHR) or Electronic Medical Records (EMR) according to different health authorities
  • Benefits of all sites and all sponsors and all CROs using a common assessment tool
  • The eClinical Forum, a non-profit, non-commercial discussion/action group comprised of members of the Pharmaceutical and Clinical Research Services industry, along with sites and academia, have developed a regulatory-based assessment tool for clinical research sites to determine if their computer system (EHR, EMR, etc) is appropriate to hold regulated clinical trial data. It has been available for free for over 4 years and is currently being used around the globe by many sponsors and thousands of sites.
  • The eClinical Forum’s free “eSource-Readiness Assessment” (eSRA) that assists the sponsor/site in determining if the site system is appropriate for sourcing clinical research records
  • How a Sponsor/CRO can incorporate eSRA into their processes

eClinical Forum announces Public Release of "Requirements for Electronic Data for Regulated Clinical Trials"

The eClinical Forum is happy to announce the Public release of the “eCF Requirements V2019PR”.

ABOUT THE ECF REQUIREMENTSThe eClinical Forum has produced a set of Requirements, which are based upon statements in regulatory documents that pertain to the design, development, implementation, and management of electronic systems that support clinical research data as well as those statements that pertain to the handling of data that will be used in a regulated clinical trial.  We have reviewed regulatory documents from the FDA, EMA, PMDA, and ICH to produce this set of requirements. Each Requirement has as its basis one or more statements from one or more of these regulatory documents. The Requirements can be used to determine if systems that data which will become part of a regulated clinical trial are consistent with regulatory requirements and if systems and process that manage these data have the necessary features.

eCF Webinar: Industry Standard HL7 FHIR as used to integrate Sponsor’s EDC system with Site’s EHR System

This presentation will focus on how to reduce the amount of manual data entry for Site users by leveraging Health Level 7 (HL7) Fast Health Interoperable Resources (FHIR) standard.  Some sponsors are using FHIR to automate data entry of the EDC System’s Case Report Forms by integrating with their Site’s EHR System. This is an exciting trend that is in very early stages of adoption across the industry. We will hear from a site regarding how they send data (local labs, vitals, demographics, EKG, etc. ) directly to their sponsors and CROs via data file extracts and FHIR. We will hear from a technology vendor who has adopted the FHIR standard.
