For the last couple of years, the clinical research industry has seen its staff shift to a work-from-home, remote model. Here, our clinical data management and EDC expert goes through some eClinical regulatory trends that are impacting clinical research:
Considerations when embracing an eClinical suite
There’s one important advantage of going from paper to paperless data collection, which is eliminating certain steps you take on paper that don’t offer any value. If you’re moving from paper to digital, take a step back and evaluate your current workflows. This will help you understand which steps can go, and which steps should stay in your digital workflow. For instance, assessing your delegation of authority workflows.
However, when moving from paper to digital, it’s important to understand it’ll take effort on behalf of your staff to build libraries and ensure they’re ready to be used. By using technology, you’ll make your research more efficient for everyone. If you dedicate some time now, your staff will continue to reap the rewards for an exceedingly long time.
Your studies will also become more efficient and scalable, and you’ll help your staff do more and serve more participants for every study.
Reducing staff burden when shifting to remote work
When moving toward a hybrid or remote model, ensure you’re equipping your staff to do so effectively. For instance, a single organization usually has staff members scattered across a city. Previously, keeping your trials moving and being at the right place at the right time needed a lot of coordination and ensuring everything that was required was in place.
Plus, sometimes, site staff would drive across the city just to get a signature of an investigator. By switching to an eClinical suite, extensive coordination for all staff isn’t needed, as everything is available online, and there’s no need for any physical retrieval.
Moreover, eClinical suite doesn’t just benefit your staff, it also decreases the need for onsite monitoring visits. Today, a lot of institutions have limitations in place, restricting who is on-site.
