2020 Wrapped: Montrium’s Best Webinars

Yeseul Jun


Montrium Webinars Wrapped 2020 Gif 1

2020 was a year of many firsts — most of them quite challenging. But 2020 was also the year we learned the most: We learned to pivotadapt, and grow. We continued to share insights and connect with the great audience we’ve built here at Montrium. 

There were many firsts for Montrium, as well. We launched TMF Week in June, the largest free online event dedicated entirely to Trial Master Files. We also held eTMF Systems Day this December, where ClinOps and TMF professionals from pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device organizations came together to share and expand their eTMF knowledge.  

Among all the insights we’ve gathered and shared this year, here are some of our best, practical webinars that are worth revisiting. From how to bring your TMF in-house to Adobe Sign best practices to AI’s role in risk-based TMF oversight, we answered some crucial questions 

Block off some time in your calendar this week to tackle these, you won’t regret it. 

Monitoring Beyond COVID-19: Setting Yourself Up for the New-Normal

Webinar on clinical trial document management

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the pharmaceutical and medical device industries to explore methods beyond the traditional on-site monitoring and auditing of clinical trial sites. It has enabled companies to leverage both existing technologies and quickly adopt new methodologies to ensure data integrity and patient safety. 

What you will learn: 

  • Opportunities and the challenges of the “new normal” in the management and oversight of clinical trials 
  • How we think technology will evolve in the future to better support new risk-based approaches to oversight 
  • AI's growing role in clinical trial oversight 

21st Century Clinical Trials: Implementing an eTMF for Better Sponsor Oversight

webinar eTMF sponsor oversight

As a sponsor, bringing your TMF in-house can provide significant long-term benefits – including better oversight, more control, more accountability, and continual inspection readiness. It isn’t always the easiest change to make, however. An in-house eTMF can help you speed up your time to market by reducing tedious back-and-forth communication and freeing up more time to focus on research. 

What you will learn: 

  • The clinical trial landscape and the evolution of the TMF  
  • How outsourcing impacts TMF management 
  • Why sponsors bring TMF Management in-house 
  • Implementing an eTMF for better sponsor oversight  
  • What you need to manage your eTMF internally 

How to Fast Track 21 CFR Part 11 Electronic Signatures in Adobe Sign

webinar adobe sign 21 CFR Part 11 Electronic Signatures best practices

With strict worldwide regulations around electronic signatures, it's not easy to digitally transform your business if you don't know where to start. To tackle this problem, Montrium and Adobe teamed up to ease the validation burden on life science teams and speed up the validation process. As a follow-up to our Adobe Sign webinar in April, we present the key steps in implementing and validating Adobe Sign for use in 21 CFR Part 11 and Annex 11 GxP environments.  

What you will learn: 

  • Demystifying remote signatures 
  • Overview of Adobe Sign and its partner ecosystem 
  • Part 11 capabilities and a customer’s point of view on key considerations 
  • How to apply a strategic framework to validation 
  • Results from Pharmascience's customer experience validating Adobe Sign 
  • Adobe Sign's free validation packs 
  • Montrium Toolkit offering available to help accelerate your transition 

Leveraging Technology and Artificial Intelligence in Risk-Based TMF Oversight

trial master file management and TMF oversight with artificial intelligence

Risk-based monitoring has been growing in popularity over the past 15 years and this year's Covid-19 pandemic on clinical trials has only driven this growth further. With the increasing power of artificial intelligence and machine learning in TMF management, applying risk strategies in TMF oversight is becoming a means of gaining efficiencies without impacting quality.  

What you will learn: 

  • Applications of AI and machine learning in planning and conducting TMF oversight activities  
  • How these technologies will empower remote site access and clinical trial collaboration 

How to Prepare for an Audit and Maintain Oversight Within Your EQMS

Have an audit coming up soon? As your quality audit will examine your quality management system (QMS), you’ll want to take the right measures to keep your QMS in shape and avoid the last-minute rush to prepare your system and your team. 

What you will learn: 

  • What the quality auditor/inspector or quality team are looking for  
  • How to manage a clearly defined internal system that monitors procedure effectiveness linked to operational activities  
  • The importance of using the right communications strategy to get all process-owners on the same page 
  • How to motivate your team to get internal buy-in and increase ownership of quality processes  
  • How to show if you comply with the defined quality system processes (e.g. creating an SOP listing, organizational chart, and training matrix)  
  • What results can be achieved through the implementation of an enterprise QMS or EQMS  
  • After the audit: responding to findings and requests for corrective actions 

Beyond Implementation: The Evolution of Your eTMF

Montrium Webinars Wrapped 2020 eTMF Evolution

As the industry moves further towards advanced electronic Trial Master Files (eTMF), the opportunities for changing the techniques and processes for TMFs must also follow suit. Montrium’s CEO Paul Fenton and Dawn Niccum, QA & Compliance Senior Director from inSeption discuss how to ensure the quality of eTMF content and processes when transitioning to a new system. 

What you will learn: 

  • Current state of eTMF including multiple locations and owners for documents, regulator expectations, and technology opportunities  
  • New paradigm for the review and management of documents  
  • How the TMF Manager role will change over time 
  • Opportunities that evolve from advanced eTMF reporting
