Phase 3 Study Begins Using Target e*CTR as eSource and Associated Risk-Based Monitoring


A meeting was held with FDA on 19 July 2012 to discuss our approach to the paperless clinical trial and Risk-Based Monitoring and no obstacles were identified. Minutes of the meeting, redacted, are available by request. Since that time, Target Health is pleased to announce that a fully paperless Phase 3 clinical trial has begun. In terms of software:


  1. Target e*CRF®is being used for EDC (24 approvals to date). In addition to the standard functionality of EDC, Target e*CRF includes:
    1. Real-Time Direct Data Entry (RT-DDE) at the time of the office visit using Target e*CTR™ as the eSource software
    2. Target Encoder® for medication and AE coding
    3. Target Monitoring Reports™ for Qualification, Initiation, Interim (central and onsite) and Closeout Visits
    4. Target e*Pharmacovigilance to generate Form 3500A and CIOMS1 forms
  2. Target Document® for the eTMF
  3. Target e*CTMS for study startup and project management


In addition, Risk-Based Monitoring has been implemented using the Clinical Data Monitoring Plan (CDMoP).
