Nearly 200 attendees participated in a webinar delivered by the eClinical Forum for ACRP.
The objective of the webinar was to allow attendees to:
The presentation covered:
Investigators are frequently asked to complete sponsor-specific assessments of their EHR systems to enable sponsors to evaluate clinical trial data that will be sourced from these systems. The eClinical Forum has developed a free, standard tool that can help sites to do this quickly, easily, and once for all sponsors.
This presentation provides an overview of the assessment tool and information on access and use.
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. Sponsors bear the responsibility for ensuring that data sourced from these systems are acceptable. As a result investigators are frequently being asked to complete sponsor-specific assessments of their EHR systems.
The eClinical Forum, a non-commercial, global organization has developed a free and standard self-assessment tool that can help sites to do this quickly, easily, and once for all sponsors. With the aid of information provided by their EHR vendor, the site can quickly identify if its system and/or processes are compliant with research regulations or if additional processes need to be put into place.
Using this assessment tool will enable sponsors to evaluate and manage risk. Regulators and sponsors should feel confident in the quality of eSource coming from assessed sites.
Improved access to patient data is key to managing bottlenecks in clinical research. The presentation gives an overview of one of the largest public-private partnerships aimed at providing adaptable, reusable and scalable solutions for re-using patient level data from Electronic Health Record systems for Clinical Research.The presentation gives an insight into how the EHR4CR platform and services will:
1. Enable re-use of electronic health records to do better upfront protocol optimization and planning.
Today… A third of protocol amendments are avoidable; over 40% of amendments occur before first patient first dose
2. Provide tools for sites to identify candidates for clinical trials by electronically searching EHRs in order to improve patient recruitment which is one of the biggest challenges for clinical research.
Today… 50% per cent of clinical trials fail to achieve the target recruitment rate
3. Connect healthcare and research systems to improve the capture and exchange of clinical trial data.
Today… Over 40% of clinical trial data is entered manually into both healthcare and research systems; Transcription errors increase the workload for monitoring, querying, and responding to queries; Complex processes must be put in place to manage the ‘source’
During 2014 the project will be engaged in activities for externalisation of the platform and services
The eClinical Forum held an open discussion with members from pharma, CROs, and associated software vendors, to talk about this draft FDA guidance on Jan 8, 2013. The resulting comments are a consensus of member opinion. They have been submitted to the FDA on March 12, 2013.
