The Paperless Clinical: Time to Query Resolution


As part of Target Health’s contribution to the adoption, implementation and feasibility of the paperless clinical trial, our position is that “it is all about the data.“


The following table analyzes the time from the generation of a manual query to the time of its resolution when data are entered in “real time“ and monitored in “real time“ in a paperless clinical trial. This Phase 3 paperless clinical trial used Target eCTR (eClinical Trial Record) as eSource fully integrated with Target e*CRF (EDC) and Risk-based (adaptive) Monitoring. While it may have taken 30 days to resolve all queries, 15% of queries were resolved on the day of issue, 77% within 5 days and 93% within 10 days. Congratulations to our monitors for this spectacular metric.
