Webinar: Validation Strategies for Cloud-Based EDCs – More Innovation, Less Effort

Validation concerns can hold companies back from adopting innovations in their clinical systems

Validation concerns can hold companies back from adopting the latest innovations in their EDC systems. Differing opinions on the appropriate level of system validation can also add stress within an organization. It is possible to implement new features and stay validated with relatively little effort if you use validation techniques tailored to cloud-based systems.

In this session, we address how to set the right approach, what to expect from a cloud EDC software provider and what you should expect to do as a sponsor or CRO to perform the initial validation and maintain a validated state following subsequent releases.

Participants will leave with strategies in-hand to conduct more efficient validation cycles and a greater ability to incorporate new system capabilities as they are released.

Key Learning Objectives

  • What validation needs to be done?
  • Managing release cycles
  • Best practices – ensuring you have a record of what you have and have not done, understand what you have so it is straightforward to reference
