Paperless Clinical Trials 2019

July 1, 2019

What's New

At DIA last week, we presented the profound experience of “A Pharma/CRO Partnership in the Design and Execution of Paperless Clinical Trials from eICF to Database Lock.“ The presentation was with Michelle Eli (Eli Lilly), Tom Haag (ex-Novartis) and Jules Mitchel (Target Health) and is based on our experience using our paperless clinical trial system.

Slide 4 says it all

1.     You can never go 100% paperless.

  • REALITY: Maybe not 100%, but you can get really close.

2.     Regulators won't go for this.

  • REALITY: Not true

3.     Sites will HATE not having paper.

  • REALITY: This was not our experience.

4.     This will never work outside the US!

  • REALITY: Not true

5.     You can't perform source data verification (SDV) if you have no source documents!

  • REALITY: You can and a lot of it can be done virtually

We demonstrated, with data from a completed clinical trial, that paperless trials are 1) infinitely more efficient and 2) quality driven than collecting data on piece of paper and then transcribing these data to EDC systems followed by SDV.
