About the Program:

REDCap has established itself as a vital tool in creating and managing 21 CFR (including but not limited to parts 11, 50, and 56), GDPR, HIPAA, compliant electronic informed consent, and electronic data capture components in the clinical trial management system.

The Computer Software Assurance (CSA) concept within the context of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) refers to a risk-based software implementation methodology ensuring the safety, efficacy, and quality of software used in the FDA-regulated industry.

Implementing the REDCap system utilizing the CSA provides a robust cost, time, and labor-effective methodology to implement computer systems in the FDA-regulated industry.

Learning Objectives:

This webinar shall provide tools and resources to identify validation requirements to implement FDA-compliant REDCap to conduct eIC and EDC processes supporting the clinical trial management system.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is suited for all technical and non-technical resources (IRB support staff, System Owners, Technical Owners, Management, Quality Assurance, and Validation team) involved in the REDCap operations and administration from a beginner level to an advanced level in familiarity with computer systems validation.
