Mater Workshop: The Transition to Paperless Technology in Clinical Trials

As a result of Covid-19, the industry has rapidly adopted paperless systems to allow for electronic source, paperless regulatory site files, remote monitoring, virtual visits and more. This webinar will explore the great benefits these systems have brought to our industry during this challenging time and address the opportunities that have arisen. We will also openly discuss these systems’ long-term impacts for sponsors, CROs, and sites as we move into a completely paperless world. Our very own Rick Greenfield BBA-IS, CEO, RealTime CTMS, and Nathan Levens, Director of Virtual Solutions & Technology, RealTime CTMS, will be presenting the workshop.

Advanced Clinical Research Systems: The Top-Down Approach

The clinical research process, especially as it relates to data, primarily functions off paper source documentation and manually transcribed data into EDC systems. Most clinical research sites are still utilizing paper regulatory processes. Due to these primarily paper-based systems, there are numerous inefficiencies and detriments to the speed and accuracy of the clinical research process. So why are many sites still using paper-based research systems?

The Problem

As it relates to advanced research systems, FDA regulations have paved the way for electronic document storage, eSignatures, and electronic data capture. However, there is still an evident uncertainty in the industry about the FDA’s acceptance of a paperless process. The slow adoption of these advanced systems, unfortunately, is holding back the clinical research industry from a much more efficient and cost-effective future.

The Top-Down Approach

The Top-Down (or sponsor-driven) approach to adopting advance research systems has proven to be a long-winded process. Adherence to site policies and procedures for data accuracy, GCPs, regulatory compliance, and protocol compliance makes transitioning to paperless systems a significant hurdle. Current top-down systems do not have the user’s (site staff and doctors) needs in mind regarding workflow and ease of use.

The Solution

The shift to advanced research systems such as eDOCS and eSOURCE is inevitable. Additionally, EDC vendors need to help pave the way by offering intuitive data sync capabilities that will bring value to all parties and keep EDC companies relevant in this inevitable shift. As sites adopt site-based eSOURCE and eDOCS systems, the need to efficiently transfer files and data into sponsor-managed eTMF systems and EDC systems will become imperative. The pendulum has shifted!  Advanced electronic systems are proving their value across all organizations!
