What is eConsent and How Does it Improve Clinical Trials?

We all recognize the vital role informed consent plays in clinical trials. These trials operate under a complex set of regulations governing how consent is obtained.

It is estimated that eConsent implementation in clinical trials reduce the time spent on consent-related tasks in trials by up to 50%, according to the article Comparative Effectiveness of eConsent: Systematic Review in PubliMed.

While paper forms remain an option, electronic informed consent (eConsent) is rapidly becoming the preferred method due to its efficiency and auditability. However, ensuring your eConsent process adheres to these regulations is essential.

In short, eConsent enhances the participant experience by:

 

Simplifying the consent process: Participants can access the consent document on a secure digital platform (computer, tablet, or mobile device) at their convenience.

 

Encouraging informed decision-making: Participants can review the information at their own pace, ask questions, and gain a clear understanding of the study before electronically signing the document.

Reducing paperwork: eConsent eliminates the need for physical forms, saving time and resources.
