eDiFy - Evidence based Case Report Forms (CRF) design - Templates and methods

Duration: 2015 - 2017

Funding: Tyrolean Science Fund (TWF)



The design of electronic Case Report Froms (eCRF) is one of the most challenging and important tasks while setting up medical studies or while building Medical Data Registries (MDR). Ensuring the quality of the design process and the eCRFs has an important impact on the overall quality of studies to be set up.

When creating such eCRFs while relaying on existing studies, scientific publications or medical cases in an evidence based way the quality and the comparability of the study can be increased.

Aim of the project

The aim of this project is to provide templates for evidence based eCRF design. Using these templates the quality of the eCRF design process as well as the quality of the designed eCRFs can be increased. Additional those templates can be reused and can speed up the eCRF design for other similar studies or implementation of MDRs as well.
