Free access to online, GDPR compliant clinical trial management system offered by EasyTrial to all COVID-19 research projects globally during entire research period

March 19, 2020

In the light of the current crisis, Danish-based EasyTrial offers its web-based, GDPR compliant clinical trial management system free of charge to researchers at hospitals and universities, medical, biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations (CRO) all over the world. The clinical trial management system is already used by the Danish Cancer Society, the Norwegian Cancer Registry and Scandinavian University Hospitals and handles all phases of a research project. The platform observes GCP and is praised by current users for its user-friendly front-end that eases online contact with test participants or patients and fellow researchers. Furthermore, the system is built to support research across borders.

“We dedicate an EasyTrial server entirely to any research related to the combat of COVID-19”, says Ms Jannie Hedegaard, Sales and Marketing Director of EasyTrial ApS. “The offer is for any researcher anywhere in the world who can contribute to the prevention, treatment and diagnostics of the COVID-19 virus which has taken the world by surprise.

 

Many professionals are already carrying out life-saving research and luckily, we see funds flowing from for instance the EU Commission to researchers. Our offer goes out to both these researchers, but also to minor and equally important project that may not get funds for their research.

 

We see this as our contribution to the combat of the COVID-19 virus – and it has no catch". Ms Jannie Hedegaard from EasyTrial underlines. “The platform will be free for research on COVID-19 during the entire research process”.

 

Support to clinical trials at no cost to speed up the combat of COVID-19

Researcher around the world are presently working together to find ways to tackle the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus that has hit the world. Projects include current and ongoing research on COVID-19 vaccine development, treatment and diagnostics as well as emergency research about to start now:

  • Development of new vaccines – both prophylactic and therapeutic that will prevent and treat COVID-19

  • Diagnostic tests that enable health care workers to diagnose more rapidly in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus

  • New treatments – both treatments in the pipeline and advanced modelling and computing techniques to screen and identify molecules that would fight the virus

  • Improving the public health and monitoring systems to prevent and control the spread of the virus

Free clinical trials management for COVID-19 researchers globally

EasyTrial reaches out to support the combat of the virus and has made a rapid decision to make their clinical trial management system available for free to all COVID-19-related research projects – whether local or cross-border – in order to speed up the process towards finding a vaccine.

 

“So, whether you are a professor or a PhD student, whether you are in Copenhagen or China, we are offering assistance in setting up your research on a web based, GDPR compliant storage platform. All communication with both patients, test persons or even the public to gather data about any phase of the COVID-19 infection can take place as long as the user has a cellular phone, tablet or PC and access to the internet.

In principle, the platform can also be used by national authorities to gather data from all citizens about the development of the virus at home – the cases that never reach the hospitals because people are told to stay home while not life-threateningly ill.

Naturally, the management software is specifically tailored to the needs of professionals and can be used by a group of researchers collaborating across borders.

 

Thoroughly tested clinical trial management system

Existing users of the EasyTrial management system range from the University of Bergen to the Danish Cancer Society. A group of researchers in the Cancer Registry of Norway that carried out HPV-based epidemiological research has this comment to their experience with EasyTrial:

“As part of the long-term follow-up of a vaccine trial, EasyTrial was used to monitor the blood collection from 1,000 women at 10 different sites across the country. The ’live’ EasyTrial status reports from each site allowed us to easily monitor progress, identify discrepancies and provide assistance when and wherever needed. Altogether, it strongly contributed to the overall response rate of the trial. Support from the EasyTrial team was also excellent throughout the trial”.

 

Key features of the EasyTrial clinical trial management system related to COVID-19 trials

The clinical trial management system offers researchers:

  • Complete, online, real-time study overview

  • A tool for cross-border collaboration (audit trail compliant with EU and US legislation)

  • Predesigned and customizable eCRF and questionnaires

  • Multi-site management

EasyTrial GDPR compliant storage platform

February 23, 2020

Because most tools for clinical trials focus on securing the collection process, they often fail to offer a safe storage during the statistical analysis. To comply with GDPR, all data points are required to be collected, stored and traced in all phases of a clinical trial.

EasyTrial offers a new solution which is a GDPR compliant storage platform, where your data never leaves the safe environment. When a third part needs to conduct the statistical analyses, you are controlling the access and the data. Dedicated statisticians now get access to the study data and analyses - using any desirable statistical tool.

University of Bergen - Another succesful implementation of EasyTrial

November 06, 2019

In 2018, EasyTrial initiated a collaboration with the University of Bergen, FHU department. An inquiry to the Research Unit for Health Surveys turned out to be the exact right time.

 

The research unit was looking for a trial management system that could solve several challenges related to their clinical studies. Among other things, they had a great need for handling online participant booking which EasyTrial excels at.

 

After a call for tenders, it was clear that EasyTrial was the best qualified system for the task and the system was implemented already in January 2019.

In collaboration with Trine Leikanger, Divisional Engineer in the Research Unit for Health Surveys, an implementation plan was made with teaching the system's users, as well as special development of desired adaptations to the system.

 

The Research unit for health surveys has used EasyTrial for their clinical studies for over a year now and Trine Leikanger states about EasyTrial:

"Research Unit for Health surveys conducts various research projects for different research groups. Several of these studies use EasyTrial. We are very satisfied, both by the functionality of the software and the commitment that EasyTrial personnel shows us. They have shown great service by implementing and adapting the software to our needs and wishes, and are always very helpful if any issues appear."

 

The University of Bergen is truly a valued customer, and we're proud that EasyTrials features and support department have resulted in another satisfied customer. We are looking forward to a continued great collaboration with Trine and the University of Bergen in the future.

GDPR is coming

May 07, 2018

The new EU legislation on General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming, and EasyTrial will shortly update our terms accordingly.

Due to new regulatory demands, all users of EasyTrial must now accept an additional Data Management Agreement as part of our normal way of conducting business.

EasyTrial is designed from the first version to include data protection by design and data protection by default – this is the core of our business.

Keep doing what you’re best at, and let EasyTrial take care of the rest.

Mai Britts’ aspirations to see a more technologized society have a solid foundation behind, since the advanced social networking tools, web solutions and telecommunications can fully support the whole health care delivery and education. Information Technology may empower patients to take a more active role in their health care by providing enough information and giving possibility to take part in the decision making process. This redesign of home care services can lead to a totally new perspective in the medical sector, providing opportunity to receive an effective health care even by those patients who experience difficulties in accessing it. How is it going to be embraced this new transition in health care system, still remains under a big question mark…

Randomising

March 31, 2016

A valuable clinical trial management system should provide the opportunity to apply randomising functionality as needed. By using a clinical trial management system with an integrated randomising module, health care personnel can monitor and manage the trial using only one system, simplifying daily work.

Randomising ensures that each participant will have an equal opportunity to take part in the clinical trial. Moreover, it enables the formation of identical groups from different perspectives necessary for comparison in a trial. Therefore, randomising can play a key role in clinical trials, since its main function is to form comparable groups without any type of accidental bias in participant selection.

Very often the randomising is done manually or with third-party software that can make the trial more complicated.  

EasyTrial has incorporated an advanced randomising function that simplifies all trial processes. Some main features are:

 

  • Blinded or non-blinded randomising;

  • Randomising using allocation numbers;

  • Randomising using virtual envelopes and own allocation numbers.                                                                                                                                                      

 

EasyTrial’s randomising also allows automatic generation of consecutive baseline numbers, or uploading of custom allocation numbers directly into the EasyTrial system, making their integration simple and efficient.

In relation to a blinded randomising, there is an opportunity to break the randomising code for a study participant if a serious event requires it.

These and many other tasks can be performed with the help of the EasyTrial clinical trial management system – a great solution for the everyday challenges of clinical trials. 

Surveys

May 30, 2015

We have optimised the survey module in EasyTrial.


The survey module is used if you want the study participants to answer a series of questions from home. EasyTrial can automatically send out a link to the survey via email. Participants log onto the survey module via the link and answer the questions. All responses are immediately available in the study database.


The investigator can place the organisation's logo onto a survey for a more personal touch. 

Region Zealand signs major deal

January 06, 2015

Region Zealand has decided to optimise the university hospitals’ clinical trial management. A new system – EasyTrial, developed by Danish physicians – ensures optimal data protection and resource allocation in all projects.

The Zealand Regional Research Unit has signed a license agreement for unrestricted use of EasyTrial Clinical Trial Management Software by all hospitals in the Region with the Danish company EasyTrial. The solution includes electronic data capture, automatic participant surveys, local research databases and registry-based studies, while maintaining total control and overview of all clinical trials.

It is crucial that our doctors and other hospital staff use their resources as efficiently as possible. With the new management system from EasyTrial, we provide a tool that can help optimise the individual researcher's workday while we in the Region ensure that we comply with all applicable rules regarding data protection and good clinical practice.

Dr. Knud Rasmussen, Head of Research, Zealand Region

We very much look forward to working with Region Zealand. We are confident that the Region's scientists will achieve greater efficiency and a better overview of their trials with our solution, which has been developed by Danish doctors. […] In our view, Danish research environments have a great need for flexible and resource-saving management systems that ensure proper data storage and record-keeping in accordance with the applicable regulations.
