1 Introduction Why? Who? Purpose?What? Advantages?

2 Imperial College Mission Statement Imperial College embodies and delivers world class scholarship, education and research in science, engineering, medicine and business, with particular regard to their application in industry, commerce and healthcare. We foster interdisciplinary working internally and collaborate widely externally. Healthcare research is essential to this mission

3 What is InForm? An Integrated Trial Management tool designed to make data management of clinical trial data easier to handle and manipulate. A web-based electronic data capture tool that enables site staff to enter data on research participants into electronic Case Record Forms to eliminate paper trails. InForm ™ has been adopted for the following reasons:  Increasing level of legislation and regulation covering healthcare research  Increasing expectations from funders about quality of trial and data management  Regulators increasingly target data management in inspections  Supplier of the product is the market leader with over 3000 trials in over 100 countries worldwide

4 What does InForm do? 1. Collects data from clinical trials Validates the entries 2. Allows monitoring and oversight of clinical trials Source data verification checks Freezing and locking data 3. Creates an audit trail Data entered/modified (who, when etc.) Queries raised/resolved Monitoring undertaken 4. Facilitates Reporting

5 Advantages of InForm at Imperial College London Facilitates Governance - Imperial has to move to a consistency in approach Trial Oversight - InForm is proven to be a robust system regardless the size, simplicity or indeed complexity of the trial, whether it be 3 or 300 patients Audit functionality built in - Improved data retention, minimises missing data (including security and back up facilities) Proven product - Ability to spread best practice in design of eCRFs, which will make auditing more effective

6 Advantages of InForm for the Individual User Can be accessed from anywhere in the world where there is Internet Validation functionality built in – regardless of the different individuals working on one trial, data will be consistent because the system will run according to certain rules Data validated in real time Improved in-trial monitoring. This will ensure consistent quality checking so that trial staff can take more ownership of their data. Automatic audit trail creation for each individual data item so you can see all changes to data made by users Intended to minimise administration by streamlining the data collection, data retrieval and queries
