Frequently Asked Questions

What is clinical trial eConsent?

Clinical trial eConsent (electronic informed consent) is a digital consent process that potential study participants undergo prior to enrollment as well as throughout the study to confirm their comprehension. eConsent may employ multiple electronic media to convey information related to the study and obtain informed consent. It can be used remotely or on site.

What types of studies can be supported by eConsent?

Our eConsent solutions can be used for traditional, site-based eConsent forms as well as remote, at-home consent forms. Signant’s tiered options support a wide range of clinical research studies – from Phase I studies to global Phase III studies.

Why should clinical researchers transition from paper-based consent forms to eConsent forms?

By switching from traditional forms to eConsent forms, sponsors can expect significant improvements, such as enhanced clinical data quality and traceability, minimized audit findings, real-time visibility and monitoring, increased site efficiencies, as well as a centralized document mangement.

How can clinical trials improve compliance with eConsent?

eConsent improves adherence in clinical trials by ensuring study participants sign the correct consent form version. It uses date and time stamps as well as real-time monitoring for better traceability.

Does your eConsent solution offer data integration tools and clinical data exchange with other systems?

Signant’s eConsent solution offers integration with our other clinical data solutions from our SmartSignal product suite, as well as with other eClinical systems.
