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

V2019PR March 2020

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.

Prominent Industry Magazines address the need for investigator site systems assessment and eSRA

Applied Clinical Trials (English), PHARMSTAGE (Japanese)

Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems are being used increasingly by clinical investigative sites; and there is a growing expectation, by regulatory agencies, for clinical trial sponsors to verify that EHR systems comply with requirements to protect confidentiality and provide accurate and reliable data for the use in a regulated research environment. eClinical Forum provides a free tool to assist sponsors and sites in deternining if their EHR systems are appropriate to source clinical research data.

This very important topic has been featured in 2 prominent industry magazines:

Applied Clinical Trials (English, December 2018)

PHARMSTAGE (Japanese, October 2019)

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.
