Your CRA and Sponsor Monitors for the first time in our recent history are being locked out of sites either based on a site-specific decision to protect patients and staff or because of travel restrictions that Sponsors or CROs are instituting.
In any event, the suspension of this vital element of clinical research has the potential to bring studies to a screeching halt. However, with an eISF or vritual document management solution in place, it is your opportunity to lead with action and give your monitors remote access to your source and regulatory documents.
And with a tool like eBinders, you will have additional security features like PHI redaction, permission controls (down to the document level to ensure only what they need to see is exposed) and QC collaboration features that meet the needs of communication and the goal of ensuring document quality and completeness.
As a technology-enabled research organization with remote monitoring-specific tools in place, you will be uniquely positioned to help ease this unprecedented setback.
