Ethical has integrated redaction capacity to its clinical endpoints adjudication software platform eAdjudication® to allow online anonymisation of documents uploaded by investigational sites.
Source documents needed for the adjudication of clinical endpoints such as patient charts, physician’s notes or procedure reports often contain personal identifiers and other confidential information that needs to be deleted or hidden to preserve the anonymity of the subjects. In addition, adjudicators must be blinded to other information such as site number, country or investigator’s name to ensure unbiased and impartial assessment of the cases.
In the framework of endpoint adjudication site personnel anonymise source documents and reports while hiding study information is the responsibility of the sponsor’s central staff. In both cases, redaction of documents generates a heavy administrative burden.
Ethical’s eAdjudication now has a new feature that allows authorised users to easily and quickly redact documents online as necessary ensuring efficacy and compliance.
CEO of Ethical Mimmo Garibbo says: “Ethical’s eAdjudication platform continues to improve with additional capabilities such as the new redaction functionality.
“We are very proud to continue to make our customers’ job easier by allowing investigational sites and sponsors’ staff to redact documents in just a few clicks.”
eAdjudication is a Cloud-based platform designed to manage clinical endpoint independent review and adjudication in a simple, effective and good practice (GxP) compliant way.
