Risk-based Monitoring at Target Health


This past week, Dr. Mitchel presented a talk entitled: “Impact of Risk-Based Monitoring and eSource Methodologies on Clinical Sites, Patients, Regulators and Sponsors.“ Respond to the newsletter if you want a copy of the slides. We showed that RBM tied in with eSource methodologies can:


1. At minimum, reduce in half the number of site visits

2. Reduce queries

3. Basically eliminate the need for formal source document verification (SDV) to verify “transcription accuracy“

4. Replace SDV with source document review (SDR) aka, “intelligent monitoring.“

“Couldn’t resist the blossoms in the trees of our parking lot here after work. Light was beautiful, sufficient and diffused by a thin layer of clouds.“ James Farley, Director, Data Management and Programming, TransTech Pharma, LLC
