Abstract :

Unique eCRF is an electronic platform which maintains and integrates clinical trial subject’s lifetime health care and financial
records. Unique eCRF could route authorized person to a private and secure environment to confidentially access, manage
and share the health information of a subject. Unique e-CRF has potential of integrating various domains of clinical trial to
a unifocal point like data capture, data cleaning, and data mining hence significantly contribute in trial management. Unique
eCRF helps both in reducing risk and improving efficiency throughout a study by eliminating the need for data reconciliation
and the expenses of managing separate systems. Thus, it also contributes in huge saving of a pharmaceutical company in terms of
cost and time. Unique eCRF make clinical trial more transparent by allowing real time data asses to all involved parties (clinical
trial manager, investigator, sponsor, licensee, regulatory auditors, etc.) simultaneously. The other potential advantages include
integrated patient’s health and financial data, audit trial capabilities, identifying eligible patients for clinical trials from patient’s
records, trial randomisation, agile data transfer, follow patient outcomes, in creating patient registries, monitoring adverse drug
reactions and pharmacovigilance reporting. The auto-alerts and correction feature of eCRF will improvise data collection, faster
database lock and hence a smart way for data management and quick statistical analysis. However, unique eCRF should be featured
in compliance with 21 CFR part 11 requirements which impose extra pressure and a challenge in its design. In addition, the initial
cost of adopting this model is quiet heavy.
