Raising Our Standards: Collaboration and Technology for External Vendor Data
Erin Erginer | Director of Product, Pinnacle 21 by Certara
Historically, the primary focus of clinical trial data collection has been the Case Report Form (CRF). Though most paper CRFs have already evolved into the eCRFs of Electronic Data Capture (EDC) systems, our data collection is evolving yet again as more than 70% of clinical trial data is now captured outside of EDC systems or the concept of a CRF. Clinical trials now collect data through many other media, including decentralized trials (DCT), real-world evidence (RWE), electronic health records (EHR), wearables, and other complex vendor data such as genetic data, biomarkers, and data from ePRO devices. This Panel Discussion will explore how to best manage the ongoing transformation of clinical trial data collection. We will discuss the root causes of the problem, specific pain points, and possible solutions.
