As a data manager, one of the most common pain points are PPC's. They
are necessary evil & you can't avoid them, but if you clearly understand
them - then you can manage them successfully.
PPC's can be planned (you know it's coming & you can prepare) and
unplanned (Surprise!!! These are real shockers)
PPC's usually will have below steps:
1. Identifying the changes
2. Impact Analysis
3. Define timelines for PPC
4. PPC approvals
5. Implementing the changes
6. Document learnings in "Lesson Learnt Document"
1. Identifying the changes
This is not always a straight forward activity & needs inputs from
several study team members. Ensure you identify each change correctly
& document the same in change control form / change control
document.
2. Impact Analysis
This is the most important step of PPC. As Data Manager we are not
always aware of complete impact of the changes requested by sponsor. (
for Example - custom functions updates, RTSM updates) so involving all
the required study team members ( programmers, coders, clinical team
member, stats etc)
Along with technical impact DM also need to assess the impact on
budget & resource. How much the requested changes cost? Does study
has the budget for the same? Are people available to work on the PPC?
etc
3. Define timelines for PPC
Once impact analysis is done, ensure to come up with timelines
for each activity (ex: programming, UAT, approval, push to prod
etc). Share the timelines with entire study team and get an
agreement about the same.
4. PPC approvals
Ensure PPC request form is thoroughly reviewed and approved by
sponsor / study team members including programmer, project
manager etc.
Do not start the work unless you have all the approvals in place.
5. Implementing the changes
As DM ensure the changes are programmed correctly, tested in
UAT and are ready to be pushed to production. Also do think about
unseen issues like data loss, access related issues wont arise due
to implementation.
Get required signoff on UAT documentations, go live checklists. Do
keep CRA's and site managers updates about the implementation.
6. Document learnings in "Lesson Learnt Document"
Once the PPC is implemented, document lessons learn specially
for unplanned PPC's about what lead to PPC? What is the root
cause? Why was it missed first time?
