Large, prospective, interventional clinical trials require significant funding and years of development and study execution before practice-informing results are available. There are many critical clinical questions that will never be addressed or addressable through prospective, interventional clinical trials.

Criterium creates configurable electronic data collection tools for efficiently capturing retrospective data that will be submitted for subsequent analysis to answer clinical queries. We work very closely with our clients and have strong ongoing relationships with leading KOL’s & medical experts in our Consortium (ATOMIC), to develop robust e-data capture tools that rely on scripting and revision of very specific and clearly articulated research questions for analysis.

A Trial Master File (TMF) is a collection of all essential trial documentation that enables effective monitoring, data integrity, and compliance throughout the lifecycle of a clinical trial. Because the TMF confirms regulatory compliance, it is integral to clinical trial success. The success of your TMF starts with effective planning.

We created a helpful resource for TMF planning: the 10 Essential Steps for Trial Master File (TMF) Success.

With this whitepaper, you’ll be able effectively plan for your TMF by learning:

    • How to set roles and expectations
    • How to clearly outline processes, maintenance, and tasks
    • What to do when problems arise
