Grappling with the inadequacies of the existing paper-based consent process — magnified when patients are children — prompted ATHN to look for a better solution. This success story shares the development journey of DFconsent, an eConsent solution that informs and engages.
DFconsent: An eConsent Solution that Informs and Engages
DFconsent is an integrated electronic informed consent (eConsent) application, developed with the core mission of providing a valid, 21 CFR 11-compliant, electronic informed consent process that:
- Facilitates clinical trials,
- Is participant-friendly and easy to navigate, and
- Integrates with DFdiscover and other EDC platforms.
The draft DFconsent forms were submitted to ATHN’s Institutional Review Board, and were approved.
The development process was a positive experience for everyone. ATHN successfully adopted the DFconsent application, experiencing no “first-to-market” failures. Everyone involved in the process chose to use DFconsent in their next studies.
The Benefits of DFconsent
The success of DFconsent in ATHN’s pediatric studies demonstrated the application’s efficacy and effectiveness. Additionally, DFconsent’s operational efficiencies provided both immediate improvements and long-term financial advantages to the informed consent process. ATHN adopted it for use in its following studies and features it on their website.
DFconsent can be a success story for any clinical trial. As an optional tool in the DFdiscover suite, it integrates with DFdiscover. Its forms can be quickly and easily tailored to capture the requirements of any study, and it supports other languages, with ease of choice among them.
As clinical studies become increasingly electronic, there are opportunities for CROs, clinical trial sponsors, and site personnel to adopt electronic informed consent. DFconsent is participant- friendly, educational, streamlined, easily customizable, and a regulation-compliant solution that can be effortlessly added to any study managed by DFdiscover. DFconsent will increase your ability to recruit and engage an informed cohort, moving studies forward to a better future.
