Over and Above

In addition to the standard capabilities you’ll find in other systems, eCOS offers a series of unique advanced capabilities that strengthen the platform and take your Quality Assurance and Compliance programs to a whole new level. For example, our V-Room gives you full control of the internal audit process right from your eCOS dashboard. This “Virtual Audit Room” lets you direct every aspect of the testing process to ensure the study follows ALCOA principles. Our team of experts also is available to conduct on-site audits to resolve any issues that might crop up.

Built-in Features:

eCOS has two built-in features to support your study: a Vendor Qualification Audit and a Study Audit.

Vendor Qualification Audit

The first step on the road to compliance involves ensuring all your ducks not only are in a row, but that they’re the most-qualified ducks for the task at hand. Our vendor audit process helps you guarantee all vendors meet Good Clinical Practice standards from the get-go, so you never get a phone call that starts, “Houston, we have a problem.” 

Study Audit

When you get down to it, quality assurance in clinical research is about minimizing risk. It means identifying and eliminating potential problems before a study goes live by ensuring every process adheres strictly to all pertinent regulations across devices, procedures and all points in between. Most important, it means the answer to “Will this study pass an audit?” is never “Um, let’s hope so.” 

Study Audit in eCOS helps you examine every detail of your study. At any point, you can tap this feature to review the work to date and identify any anomalies or concerns so you can address them rapidly. In addition, we built supporting tools right into the eCOS platform that allow you to audit the study-specific deliverables.

What does this intense, consistent focus on quality and consistency mean for you? We can sum it up in three new acronyms we suggest adding to your lexicon: FCFY*, REDIDO** and YCRN***.

* Fewer Concerns For You.
** Reduced Exposure Day-In and Day-Out.

*** You Can Relax Now.
