Course Description

As the use of electronic source documentation (eSource) increases, so does the scrutiny for ensuring the integrity of the systems used to generate and retain electronic source data. In late 2010, the FDA issued a draft guidance regarding the use of eSource, providing direction on capturing, using, and archiving electronic data. A final FDA guidance was released in September 2013 focusing on identification and specification of authorized source data originators, the creation of data element identifiers to facilitate examination of the data audit trail, capture of source data into the eCRF, and Investigator responsibilities. This web seminar will review how the requirements for paper source documentation translate to the electronic source document as well as examine real-world examples of the FDA’s review of eSource.

  • Navigate initiatives in the regulatory climate leading to the eSource guidance
