Integrating Clinical Operations and Clinical Data Management Through EDC

4,071

Published on

When electronic data capture was first introduced there was a great deal of discussion surrounding how the technology would alter the roles of those in clinical operations and clinical data management. Through the review of a case study, we will explore how EDC is used as a tool to more tightly integrate clinical operational staffs with those in clinical data management resulting in a more streamlined process from study initiation to database lock.

  5. 5. Historical Perspectives ► Age of technological advances • Application of technology to a process • Integration of technology as part of the process
  6. 6. Clinical Operations:The Past! ► On-site monitoring was an isolated event ► On-site was the only way to monitor ► On-site monitoring = rate-limiting factor for data compilation and database lock ► Monitoring focus was on data checking ► Common (but now archaic) activities: • Tracking each CRF page as it passes from site to clinical to CDM • “yellow stickies” and tracking queries separately from CDM’s queries ► Monitored CRF “handoff” to CDM ► Few feedback processes to improve data collection during the trial
  7. 7. Data flow & Monitoring: the past Patient Data Database
  8. 8. Data Flow in the past ► Data recording, collection, compilation and reporting was….. • CRF design was often hampered by limited interaction with key parties • Sequential process – little feedback to improve data • Data was not sent to CDM until after each 4-6 week visit • On-site monitoring visits were a limiting factor for data processing • Silo’d processes with formal handoffs • Paper movement from site to CRA to CDM was the rate limiting factor • CRF Page tracking was inefficient and time consuming • Query generation and resolution was a tracking-intensive • Query process was labor-intensive with both CRA and CDM • No feedback to improve data collection during trial ………………………………Very paper and process intensive and slow.
  9. 9. Early EDC days Few process changes ► Monitors still reviewed CRFs on site but using a computer instead of paper. ► EDC = RDE (remote (site) data entry) ► Off-site CRF review was rare ► Limited EDC functionality ► No large process changes to capitalize on advantages of technology ► Some clinical operations/monitors would modify dept. procedures but no integration among all groups that interact with the data. ► Clin ops and CDM was still silo’d and CRFs were still “handed-off”
  10. 10. EDC is not just for CDM! It’s for Monitors too! = real time monitoring = more efficient monitoring = CRF page status tracked = edit checks= fewer queries = improved protocol compliance = flagged protocol violations = errors caught earlier = no query tracking (EDC does it) = immediate feedback improves data quality = less time data checking EDC = Data Entry
  11. 11. Time to maximize technology and change processes ► Need changes in processes of: • Collection, monitoring, tracking, cleaning ► Real time data processing requires real time interaction between Clin Ops and CDM ► CRF design including protocol deviations and edit checks require both Clin Ops and CDM ► Query process is more real time and interactive between Clin Ops and CDM for real time changes.
  12. 12. Integration between Clin Ops and CDM enhances efficiency of EDC ► CRF design to address monitoring issues ► Constant data flow to CDM with real time feedback to Clin Ops ► Clin Ops can modify monitoring with EDC and CDM feedback ► Query generation, tracking and resolution simultaneous but integrated into one list
  13. 13. New Monitoring processes ► Real time monitoring ► Off-site and On-site monitoring ► Build edit checks into CRFS to decrease queries ► CRF design requires monitoring considerations (eg, mandatory fields, protocol compliance, proper procedures, etc) ► NO tracking of pages or queries! ► Less data checking and focus on site performance continuously ► EDC metrics provide “window” to performance (time to eCRF completion, # queries, # data errors, etc)
  14. 14. FDA Guidance ► Risk Based monitoring! ► 1988 guidance withdrawn! ► Centralized (off-site) monitoring is encouraged! ► Centralized monitoring suggested to replace on-site monitoring when it can complete activities better or as well as on-site ► Centralized monitoring (when appropriate) should improve ability to ensure the quality and integrity of data • Pubs suggest that data anomalies may be more readily detected ► EDC can implement centralized monitoring methods that can enable decreased reliance on on-site monitoring
  15. 15. Clinical Operations:The Future! Monitoring process has changed. ► Real time monitoring (not just every 4-6 wks) ► Data reviewed off-site ► Continuous data flow to CDM ► CRF design with Clin Ops and CDM • Includes protocol compliance • Edit checks to reduce queries • Database designed early requiring earlier data decisions ► Sequential processes become simultaneous (Clin Ops & CDM) ► Silo monitoring processes become integrated with CDM ► Poor communication is improved with interactive communication tools in real time (from EDC system)
  16. 16. Data flow & Monitoring: the past Patient Data Database
  17. 17. Data Flow & Monitoring: The Future Centralized DatabaseCRC CRA CDM
  18. 18. Monitoring in the 21st Century ► Risk based monitoring ► Centralized monitoring (off-site) ► Continual interaction with Site (not just during site visits) ► SDV% will vary ► Monitor spends less time on data checking and tracking ► Monitor spends more time on overall study mgt. ► Continuous data flow to CDM ► Immediate query resolution with feedback decreases monitoring time ► Continual interaction with CDM from CRF design through monitoring to database lock
  19. 19. Agenda ► Historical Perspectives ► Integrating Clinical Operations ► Integrating Clinical Data Management ► Conclusions and Parting Thoughts
  20. 20. Clinical Data Management Process Driven Technology Driven Cross-Functionally Driven
  21. 21. CDManagement ► Technology and EDC is not just a CDM tool ► Benefits extend to all functional areas ► Integration and Technology allows for companies to put the MANAGEMENT back in Clinical Data Management
  22. 22. EDC as an Integration Tool ► Technology poses no functional constraints ► Forces process re-evaluation ► Workflow bring Clinical Operations and CDM closer together ► Groups compliment and build upon each other – seamless and without formal handoffs
  23. 23. A Case Study ► Company A had a small clinical operations group with offices next to the CDM and rest of Biometrics ► Paper-based data collection – time from last patient to database freeze/lock was approximately 4 weeks for a ‘typical’ Phase II study
  24. 24. A Case Study ► EDC decision made at Management-level ► Top-down implementation ► No process re-evaluations or changes ► Study protocol in a state of flux ► Costs for EDC builds over $300K and not in production – EDC deemed a disaster
  25. 25. A Case Study ► Same teams 2 years later – CDM pro-EDC but Clinical Operations showing resistance to EDC ► Internal process evaluation/re-evaluation ► Workflow changes implemented ► EDC application implement across functional areas with cross-functional involvement ► EDC
  26. 26. Conclusions ► Use of technology is a great advance but we need to assimilate it into re-engineered processes ► To gain maximum benefit we must approach implementation of any technology through an integrated approach ► EDC can bring together groups traditional separated by process
