CRF Health recently held another very successful eCOA Forum, this time hosted in Amsterdam. These semi-annual meetings are a chance to get together with our clients and leading industry experts to discuss the latest developments in the field of eCOA (electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments). It is also very important for us to hear directly from clients about the real-world challenges they are facing and creative solutions they have developed to support the implementation of eCOA in clinical trials in their companies.
There were a number of presentations, workshops and hands on sessions during the two days of the Forum. However, some of the most interesting feedback was generated during four breakout sessions which sought to develop best practices in a number of important aspects of eCOA solutions, namely Study Design and Set Up; Scientific Best Practices; Training Best Practice; and Scaling eCOA for Company-Wide Use.
