New Firecrest eConsent Solution part
of ICONIK Informatics Hub designed to enhance patient engagement in the
trial process and in line with recent
The e-Consent solution is a component of ICON's new informatics hub designed to enhance the engagement of patient populations in the development process. One of the critical parts to improving this engagement is improving the informed consent process.
Addressing the FDA's recommendation for a more patient centric approach
to presenting clinical trial information, ICON's Firecrest eConsent
employs videos and visual aids to assist in the explanation of complex
scientific concepts and medical terms found in trial protocols. These
educational techniques were developed based on research
Conforming with the FDA's requirement for validating that e-signatures are written by the actual patient, Firecrest eConsent uses a new proprietary method to capture, confirm, encrypt, and store biometrics for each patient's signature.
Firecrest eConsent has also been designed to be compatible with sites' existing IT infrastructure, enabling sites to adopt the Firecrest eConsent solution quickly and efficiently.
"Electronic informed consent helps address one of the leading causes of regulatory findings - errors in the consent process - in current paper-based processes," commented Frances Abeton, Vice President, Firecrest. "Firecrest eConsent simplifies and provides transparency in the entire patient consent process. It thoroughly and consistently explains the trial, which instils trust in the patient, and it also offers sponsors a secure and easy-to-implement solution to drive patient enrolment and reduce the opportunities for protocol violations."
