Top 9 Features to Look for While Choosing an eClinical Platform

Rajesh Swamy Pothula

Are you in a situation where you are planning to select an eClinical platform for your trials?
You are not alone; many clinical research organizations are in the same boat.

If you have ever scoured the internet to find out which Software to use for your clinical trials, you could be overwhelmed by the number of options available.

In this post, we will help make your job easier by offering a list of essential features that your eClinical platform should have.

If you already have a preferred eClinical solution in mind, then it is best to evaluate them against these criteria before making a final decision. If you do not have any preferences yet, this list will guide you through the selection process.

1. Faster Study Setup

You can’t afford delays in starting your clinical trial; otherwise, you may fall behind your competitors or miss out on research grants and funding opportunities. The study setup process can be time-consuming and difficult. It involves different steps such as setting up a document library, importing data, creating case report forms (CRFs), and validating them. An ideal eClinical platform should streamline these steps and help you set up your study quickly.

2. Intuitive Interface

You must be able to quickly navigate through different areas of the Software without facing any complications or confusion. An intuitive interface makes it easier for users to understand the Software’s functionality without requiring much training or user guides. An easy-to-use interface will save you time and money on training while increasing user adoption (and reducing headaches).

3. Fully Integrated eClinical Software

To minimize errors, avoid data loss and eliminate duplication of efforts, look for a platform that combines all your essential clinical study needs into one fully integrated system — eProtocol Automation, EDC, CTMS, RTMS, ePRO, CSR Automation and so on.

4. Built-in Automation

Automation is essential in any industry, and clinical trials are no exception. Automated solutions allow for easier data collection, better patient experience and more accurate results. eClinical platforms with built-in automation help data managers perform necessary validation checks, create reports in a short time, and reduce errors by eliminating manual work.

5. Secure and Compliant Data Management

The most important feature you need to look for in an eClinical platform is secure data management. Your trial data isn’t just any data; it is highly sensitive and confidential patient data. The data collected by the sponsor company needs to be stored in a centralized location to ensure easy access and monitoring of the trial progress. Your solution should include audit trails, 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, and advanced security measures such as two-factor authentication (2FA) and IP address restrictions.

6. Remote Trial Monitoring

Today, most clinical research organizations (CROs), prefer to be able to remotely monitor their trials. Remote monitoring is a great way to improve the efficiency of their on-site team members and reduce travel time between sites.

7. Powerful and Advanced Reporting

Sponsors should have access to detailed, comprehensive reports that provide accurate information on progress and any issues that may have arisen during the trial. These reports should also be customizable to be tailored based on the sponsor’s needs.

8. Data Visualization and Analytics

A sophisticated eClinical solution allows you to automatically generate reports by selecting the parameters. Each sponsor can then customize the report according to their preferences. These platforms allow you to monitor patient enrollment and perform investigator tasks via visually appealing dashboards. This allows you to take immediate action when any problems arise.

9. Flexible & Cost-effective Subscription Plans

Pricing is one of the top factors when choosing an eClinical platform. Look for something affordable and flexible – you want to pay only for what you need. Choose a vendor that offers flat pricing solutions per study/per month basis, so you don’t need to bother about long term commitments.
