Innovation and the “Change” process have gripped the clinical research Industry in the last few years. Evolution in technology and Risk Management processes consequently lead to release of the latest International Council of Harmonization (ICH) Good Clinical Practice (GCP) E6 R2 step 4 in Nov 2016. Change in the Clinical Research landscape also lead to revisions towards modernization and reinforcement of the “Common Rule” in Jan 2017 besides the Food and Drug administration’s (FDA) ongoing initiatives for paperless trials with the release of multiple guidance documents including electronic informed consent (Federal Register, 2017 and Mitchel & Helfgott, 2017).
