Case Report Forms (CRFs) comprise a large part of the total paper volume
produced during clinical trials and submitted to regulatory agencies by the
pharmaceutical industry. The sheer magnitude of the paper generated by
clinical trials can be overwhelming for those managing, submitting and
reviewing these documents. The FDA is ultimately committed to receiving all
CRFs in PDF format without paper copy backup. CRFScan(tm) is designed to
solve this paper-based problem in an extremely efficient and cost effective
CRFScan(tm) is used to capture CRF images from paper, facsimile, or digital
source format such as TIFF or PDF. Once the image is captured, CRFScan(tm)
can automate the manual process of organizing the collected data by
utilizing a host of robust indexing tools. The data can be indexed by:
Study, Site, Patient, Form Number and Visit/Domain. The electronic CRF is
then available for in-house review, storage, or external distribution.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
