eConsent


Making it easier for the patient and the site

eConsent has the potential to transform the conventional consent approach by making the process easier for the site and the patient and proving transparency of the entire patient consent process. Enhanced informed consent is truly patient centric and improves the patients experience right from the start. 

eConsent solutions need to address both elements of ICH GCP, patient understanding and documentation of written consent.

Patient understanding and engagement 

FIRECREST eViewer gives the patient access to engaging, interactive, multimedia content using educational techniques that are developed based on research from Carnegie Mellon University.   It explains critical and sometimes complex terms to support optimal understanding of the study and commitments.  This enables the patient to make more informed decisions.  

eViewer also features a mark-up option for the patient to prepare for discussions and to seek clarification on specific topics with their clinician.  With better awareness of the requirements in advance, the patient is likely to be more engaged and to stay enrolled on the trial.  

Increased transparency and compliance 

FIRECREST eSignature was developed based on sponsor feedback and regulatory requirements.   It captures biometric signatures on a wide range of devices including USB signature pads, ipads or smartphone screens. Smart form technology ensures that the patient signs the correct version and that the form is fully completed, correctly dated and accessible for remote viewing by study monitors. 
Consent records are stored in a secure environment with tools for version-controlled document storage, deployment, publishing, approval and monitoring.  This enables full transparency on progress and compliance across your studies.  
Easy to deploy 

FIRECREST eSignature is designed to be compatible with sites existing infrastructure enabling sites to deploy the solution quickly and efficiently.
