So, your organization has made the decision to transition to a new eTMF system. Congratulations on taking this step! Depending on your organization and your role, you may or may not have been part of the decision-making process for choosing the system. You may be somewhat familiar with the system or encountering it for the first time. Either way, now that the ink on the contract is dry, it is time to begin making the most of your new eTMF.
Remote interactions—often termed eClinical Technology—are making their way into clinical trials. Precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an uptick in the adoption of televisits, remote monitoring, and eConsent in clinical trials.
Due to the worldwide pandemic, the CDISC European Interchange, originally scheduled to take place in person in Berlin, Germany, was presented completely online. Susan Boquist, Associate Director, Statistical Programming, took advantage of the accessibility and logged in at 3:00 am her time both mornings. Though it may have become an April Fool’s Day to remember, with only a few weeks’ notice, the organizers were able to make the format transformation flawlessly. The conference schedule was consolidated into one track. A networking app was employed to allow for attendees to easily communicate with each other, ask questions of the presenters, and view and vote on the poster presentations. Training and workshops were rescheduled for another time. It was so successful that everyone hopes the organizers will consider adding a virtual option for future conferences.
