eSource Challenges and Opportunities on the SCDM Podcast

Dr. Elena Christofides joins the SCDM podcast to talk with Linda King about the challenges and opportunities of using eSource from a site perspective. Dr. Christofides is an experienced global lead Principal Investigator with Endocrinology Associates, Inc. She has using eSource for more than a decade and shares some of the top challenges she has faced, including:

  • Discrepancies between how sites and PIs collect data and how regulatory reviewers want to view and receive data
  • Sponsors and CROs are poorly equipped to address this challenge because of their limited understanding of site and patient workflows, but continue to insert their solutions in the process

She also discusses the challenge of using data from EHRs as direct source for EDC and the importance of PI review of medical history and medications.

In case you missed it, Dr. Christofides co-authored an article with Amelia Tian, CRIO Solutions Consultant, and Olivia Dennis, CRIO Analytics and Data Migration Manager, which was recently published in JSCDM. The article presents findings from a retrospective review comparing EHR data to EDC data in on-going clinical trials.
