Webinar: Bridging Regulatory Quality and Operational Efficiency with Open Standards

Title: Bridging Regulatory Quality and Operational Efficiency with Open Standards

Description:

Central to the elimination of bottlenecks and unnecessary rework in the clinical trial continuum is automation and integration between eClinical applications based on open standards.

Existing systems (CTMS, eTMF, etc.) only support clinical trial functions in silos. Eliminating inefficiencies and bottlenecks associated with disparate data silos is critical to the goal of reducing cycle times in clinical trials. The challenges in integration of eClinical systems stems from the lack of standards, it's simply not enough to have APIs available.

Standards provide stakeholders with a basis for mutual understanding and are critical tools to facilitate communications. Open standards help fuel compatibility, interoperability, simplify trial executions and speed time-to-market.

The new TMF Exchange Mechanism provides the cornerstone in collaboration between all study startup and executive stakeholders, including sponsors, CROs, investigative sites and regulatory and ethical committees.

Why is this model so critical to all organizations engaged in clinical trials?

Learning Objectives:

  • The importance of open standards in the eClinical space
  • The business problems faced by different stakeholders in the integration of eClinical systems
  • Provide an overview of the new TMF Reference Model Exchange Mechanism
  • Discuss a specific use case on how this model could be implemented for an IRB/EC integration
