Best practices and strategic approach for evaluating computer systems

Description

This seminar will explore the best practices and strategic approach for evaluating computer systems used in the conduct of clinical trials and determining the level of compliance, based on validation and data integrity. We will walk through the entire System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) approach to validation of FDA-regulated computer systems, and will also discuss 21 CFR Part 11 and the importance of managing electronic records and signatures appropriately.

We will also walk through the entire set of essential clinical trial files that must be maintained before, during and after completion of the trial in the Trial Master File (TMF). This part of the discussion will also delve into the use of electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) systems and the pros and cons of doing so.

Finally, we will discuss what is needed to prepare for an FDA inspection of computer systems and data used in support of clinical trials. These are extremely valuable assets for any company doing this type of work, and best efforts are necessary to ensure data is maintained in a state of integrity throughout its lifecycle.
