eCOA Contingency Planning and the Role of Web Backup

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Thursday, November 21, 2019

Risk management is an essential part of electronic clinical outcomes assessment (eCOA) planning, especially when it comes to backup and recovery. Although uncommon, device failures can happen. Ensuring data integrity during clinical trials requires viable backup data collection strategies for use in the rare event that assessments can’t be completed with the primary eCOA device.

This free webinar focuses on viable backup solutions that are recognized as industry best practices. Topics include electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) data contingency planning and regulatory considerations. The featured speakers will also discuss web-based data collection processes for site-based and home-based scenarios.
