Description de EDGE
The EDGE system, developed by the Clinical Informatics Research Unit at the University of Southampton, is already embedded across 80% of the NHS within the UK and is quickly becoming a front runner for clinical trial management systems internationally. EDGE provides users with faster access to real-time data and complete study oversight from start to finish.

One System For All Data Needs
Commentaires: EDGE is an easy to use system can be used to house all your data. I use it more and more each day and find more and more uses for EDGE within our department. Great system and would recommend it as a data management system for research teams.
Avantages: The system is intuitive and easy to use with an easy to navigate site and simple but effective easy to follow GUI The system is very flexible in that it can be used to accommodate all data needs for any department. This is captured in the form of Entities or Workflows All the information you input can be made public or private depending on who you wish to view this data All the information can be reported on and easily exported to other programs such as Excel. This data can then be fed in to visualisation tools to allow quick and easy access to data that is easy to understand. The search facility used to create reports can save search criteria so continuous reports can be saved and run with ease daily/weekly/monthly. (would be great if this report could be scheduled to run automatically maybe in the next iteration of EDGE) Allows for standardisation of process through workflows and this can help standardise process trust wide or even further reaching. We have used this to help standardise particular processes across the region Can be used as document storage for clinical trials There is a global library available to anyone with EDGE access and this can be used to upload / download workflows and entities. Anything available here can be downloaded and tailored to suit the needs of the individual. This is a great idea and brings to the forefront the ideology of one NHS promoting best practice through sharing best practice. Support team are absolutely great
Inconvénients: No drag and drop option available for documents When adding workflows and entities greater customisation would be great e.g editing entity and workflow titles when adding to allow more than one of the same group of attributes to be added

If it's clinical trials related, it's in Edge!
Commentaires: We have been using EDGE for 7-8 years and it has been instrumental to our department's management. Prior to EDGE, we did not have an accurate way of tracking our studies and recruitment data. After rolling out EDGE, we have become extremely precise. We use EDGE to track all recruitment activities, assign studies, analyze staff workload, share recruitment reports and trial listings, track ethics submissions and approvals, upload regulatory documents and centralized files, and track basic finance information, among many other uses. Regarding our users, our frontline staff are responsible for entering recruitment information and maintaining patient statuses. We also give EDGE access to our investigators so they can look up protocols and regulatory documents, as well as our active and upcoming trials by disease site. We share reports with all of our users using the My Reports feature for quick retrieval of data. Sharing this data in EDGE has resulted in a great uptake of the system across all types of users (coordinators, CRAs, primary care teams, physicians/investigators, admin assistants, senior management, finance, pharmacy, etc.). The reports we are able to pull from EDGE are second to none - we can build any report, any time, anywhere! Recently, we began using Power BI to create dynamic reports from the data pulled from EDGE to enhance our ability to drill down and ask questions of our data. As we continue to use EDGE, the system truly grows and develops with us.
-Easy to use
-Fully customizable fields allows you to create meaningful reports
-Able to maintain an accurate record of all trials and patients
-Having EDGE at your fingertips means that the information you are looking for is always available when you need it
-Acts as a repository for all of our protocols and regulatory documents
-Users are able to suggest new features or improvements to help build the system for all users.
-Networking and sharing ideas with other sites as part of a community of EDGE users. Not only are we able to connect directly with other sites about EDGE, but we can also reach out to other sites about our shared trials. EDGE has truly broken down the "silo-ed" nature of clinical trials.
-Needs a data tracking tool to allow end users and admin to track their patient visits, data entry, and data timeliness.
-Would like to see a more robust and automated finance module that integrates with patient visits and data entry. Currently the finance module is very manual.
-Enhancements to the user interface would be helpful (e.g. drag-and-drop) (to be addressed in Edge v3)

I have used EDGE for 6+ years and am constantly finding new ways to use EDGE!
Reports are run to manage our trial set up and amendment processes so we can keep track of where a study is in the pipeline and what tasks are needed next. We are able to prioritise studies in set up to ensure those that are most important to open get managed through the process first. We manage all patient activity through EDGE to not only review accrual but also to identify patient activity which can be billed. We use it to measure performance within each team comparing activity from one time period to another. We use it to check the quality of our data to ensure that we are not duplicating patients or inputting incorrect information relating to patients into the system.
Avantages: It is able to be individualised to an organisations needs. How much an organisation gets out of it is limited only by the limits of the organisation's imagination and its willingness to experiment. Information is available instantly. Reports can be generated to meet a whole range of stakeholder needs.
It has some limitations in being able to generate reports that combine patient data with study set up data. We have managed to find a workaround to this which suits our needs, but it would be nice to see in future versions a way to run a report that combined project attributes with patient attributes to be able to query the data in different ways.
There are limitations with using it as a financial management tool for trials and it would be good to see in future versions a way to upload information direct from the contract and to be able to generate invoices in this way. This would definitely be on my EDGE wish list!

Integrated System for Governance and Reporting
Commentaires: Our experience with Edge is excellent. We can produce timely reports on all aspects of study set-up and management. Particularly helpful with DoH reporting for PII and PID. The system is flexible and enables fully integrated governance and oversight. We have extended the system for the studies for which we act as Sponsor and continue to customise the system. We receive excellent support from the Southampton Team.
The system is accessible, easy to use and easy to customise according to our needs. We use Edge as a fully integrated governance system for studies for which we act as Sponsor and also as a participating research site. The system is used for basic recruitment information. We customised it to report and store information on all aspects of study set-up, end to end from site selection to contract and then for amendments. The Research Management and Governance Team are the main users but we have extended use to the Research Practitioners and Data Managers for study documents and information that is version controlled and in date. All research facing staff involved in study set-up use Edge as part of the process to review capacity and capability. We have plans to extend to clinicians acting as Chief and Principal Investigators.
We extended the system for all aspects of Sponsorship, as part of site oversight and management. We also use Edge as part of ECMC reporting and as our Document Control system.
Inconvénients: We would like to see a simple way to work on finances and costing templates.

Use of EDGE for support services authorisation
Commentaires: Removes the need for many emails with attachments of files for review as files all on EDGE. Set up our attribute to our needs, useful information, used friendly.
Avantages: Tailored to individual needs, information all in once place, easy to access
Inconvénients: nothing to think of as we have grown in it's use and tailored it to our requirements
