Taking eCOA Technology Deployment Off The Critical Path

Navigate A Path

In the realm of clinical trials, the "critical path" signifies a sequential arrangement of activities, tasks, or events whose delays directly impact the overall trial timeline. These essential steps, with specific dependencies, must occur in a defined order to keep the trial on schedule. A delay in the critical path has the potential to ripple through the entire trial, affecting completion dates and potentially escalating costs. Efficient identification and management of the critical path are paramount for streamlined trial management and prompt treatment delivery to patients.

Notably, all Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs) and electronic Clinical Outcome Assessments (eCOAs) must undergo submission to an Institutional Review Board (IRB) before a trial commences to ensure the safety of human participants. This submission process, crucial for safety assurance, often poses challenges, potentially causing setbacks or necessitating a restart of the critical path.

Recognizing the inevitable role of this process in clinical research, consider this expedited review approach to facilitate the efficient evaluation of COAs and eCOAs, streamlining the pathway for successful trial execution.
