CDMS

Features in this section are changes that apply to all application areas of Vault CDMS.

EDC Navigation and UI Enhancements 24R1.3

With this release, we have made several usability enhancements to the Data Entry and Review areas.

  • In the Subjects grid, a new, filterable column “Subject Status” is added.
  • In the My Sites and My Study Sites pages, a new info icon appears next to the Ready for SDV and Ready for DMR columns and includes hoverover messages.
  • The long label for events and forms is now shown in the Schedule Tree and the Subject Listing.

Use Case

These features help reviewers to better understand the meaning of the column counts. Subject status provides improved filtering on data within the grids in the Review tab.

Enablement

These enhancements are automatically enabled.

Protocol Deviation Change Reason 24R1.3

After the initial save of a Protocol Deviation record, subsequent updates will require the user to provide a Reason for Change. The most recent Change Reason for a PD record will display in the System Fields at the bottom of the record and is added to the SYS_PD dataset. To support this feature, two new default Change Reasons of the type “Protocol Deviation” have been added in System Tools, and enabled users can add additional change reasons. As with other Change Reasons, users can provide a custom reason for change when updating a protocol deviation if Enable Other Specify - Reason for change is set to Yes at the study level.

Use Case

This feature provides greater clarity in the Protocol Deviation audit trail and aligns with regulatory guidance.

Enablement

Contact Veeva Support to enable this feature.

Query Team Enhancements 24R1.2 24R1.3

  • The Query Team tag has been moved to the query message header.
  • “Query Team” is now a column following the Opened By column in the Queries grid within the Review tab. Users can * search to filter the list on specific query teams. This column is only seen when the study is configured to use query teams.
  • Users with multiple roles which are part of more than one query team can now select the query team when entering a manual query.
  • Reopening a query is now reserved for users within the selected Query Team.

Use Case

These enhancements provide better visibility within the UI, style consistency, clarity around query teams and enhanced query functionality.

Enablement

These enhancements are automatically enabled.

Query Usability Enhancements 24R1.2 24R1.3

With this release, we have made the following enhancements to queries:

  • When site users select Edit Value they will now automatically be directed to the queried item on the form.
  • In Data Entry, form queries can now be collapsed and expanded.
  • In order to match Data Entry, updates to buttons and spacing have been made to queries in the Review UI.
  • In the Review tab users can cancel a manual query from a new button in the top right of the query.
  • A character counter has been added to the query message textbox.
  • A character counter has been added to the query message textbox.
  • Users with the Open Query permission can now open queries on read only items.
  • When selecting a query from the taskbar, users will now be navigated directly to the location of that query.
  • When closing a query, the background color of the comment area is updated from yellow to white to reflect its existing state as an optional field.

Use Case

Queries can be added to API entered data to alert sites to revise this data in their IRT system and to derived items without having to determine which individual source field was incorrect. Style updates improve UI consistency, provide quicker navigation, and help reduce scrolling.

Enablement

These enhancements are automatically enabled.


Clinical Coding

The following are new features for Coder, the clinical coding area for Vault Coder.

Batch Assign Lists 24R1.3

Batch Assign Lists is a new feature allowing users to Batch Assign a Synonym List or a Do Not Autocode List to multiple forms at the same time. In Coder Tools, a new tab, “Batch Assign List”, is added. Users can select Synonym List (Default Option) or Do Not Autocode List from the dropdown and then apply the selected list to multiple Forms. If the Synonym List is already assigned to a selected Form, then the system skips that Form during the assignment. While a Batch Assign Synonym List Job is running, the system locks down the Forms being assigned and does not allow other Synonym Lists to be assigned to those Forms. When Synonym Lists are batch assigned, an email will be sent once the list assignment as well as all related autocoding is complete.

Use Case

Previously, Synonym Lists and Do Not Autocode lists had to be assigned to forms individually, but now this can be done in a batch, reducing the amount of time users spend assigning lists to forms. ​​

Enablement

Contact Veeva Support to enable this feature in your vault.

Coder General Enhancements 24R1.2 24R1.3

We’ve made the following enhancements to Coder:

  • Updates to Synonym List Import Validation Error Messages: Synonym List Import Validation Error Messages have been updated to be consistent with the column labels in the import file.

  • Duplicate Synonym Warning is turned into an Error: In 24R1.0 we effectively allow duplicate Synonym List detail imports as the Duplicate Synonym validation message is a warning. With 24R1.2 we are turning this warning into an error that will block import.

  • We have added a limit to the number of forms that can be assigned to a copy Synonym List using Batch Upversioning.

  • The text and display locations for warning banners displayed while an Upversioning job is running have been updated.

  • We added a new option “Do Not Assign a Synonym List” to the dialog when Batch Upversioning a Synonym List with Forms.

  • Updated the Batch Upversion Dialog text when no Synonym List is to be assigned to remaining forms.

  • Added a back button to the “Upversion” dialog.

Use Case

These updates improve usability.

Enablement

These enhancements are automatically enabled.

Unique Terms Report Updates 24R1.3

With this release, we’ve made the following enhancements to Unique Term Report Job Options:

  • Primary Action & Error Handling: The Unique Terms Report job options dialog has been updated to reflect Veeva’s error handling pattern.
  • Form Type Selector: In the Unique Terms Report Job Options, we added a new multi-select field for Form Type. The following form types from the Coding Configuration can be selected:
    • AE
    • ConMed
    • Medical History
    • Other
  • Date Range: Added the option to specify the start and optional end date for the Unique Terms Report. All unique coding requests that occurred during that date range will be starred in the report. Dates will be in UTC.
  • File Type: Added the option to select the job type of the Unique Terms Report, so that the file can be generated as a PDF or Excel file.
  • Unique Terms Report Summary page: The Unique Terms Report will now include a summary page, which will detail the job options included in the report. It will be available for both the Excel and the PDF versions of the report.

Use Case

These updates are automatically available.

Enablement

These updates improve usability.


Reports & Dashboards

The following are new features for reports and dashboards in Vault CDMS.

Item 2 Standard Reports 24R1.2

With this release we are introducing two new standard reports with Item-level information:

  • Items Intentionally Left Blank: This report provides a listing of Items marked intentionally left blank, filtered by Study and grouped by Site and Subject.
  • Item Reason for Change Report: This report provides a count of Items per Site per change reason entered by the Site. It excludes system-managed change reasons.

Use Case

These reports provide greater insight into Site use of Intentionally Left Blank and Reason for Change at the Item level.

Enablement

These reports will be immediately available to Vault Owners to share with other users. The reports support studies on Data Model 2.


Study Design & Configuration

Features in this area apply to Studio, the study design and configuration area for Vault EDC.

Delete Empty Production Environments 24R1.3

With this release, an empty Production instance can be removed using the “Delete Environment” action in Studio > My Studies. This is only possible for empty Production instances that have no data.

Use Case

In some cases, users need to remove environments when a study has been created by copying from an incorrect study or library source. This feature allows users to remove those instances.

Enablement

Contact Veeva Support to enable this feature.

Queries in User Languages 24R1.3

This feature allows users to see system query messages in the language associated with their user account, instead of the language associated with the Vault. This setting applies to univariate checks defined in the Studio form properties, user defined rules, and lab queries seen in Data Entry, Review, and within the extracts. It is also included in Study Design Specifications (SDS), Comparison Reports (Diff Reports), and study deployments.

This feature applies to the QTEXT field in the SYS_Q and SYS_QT files in the Study Data Extract (SDE) job.

For users whose user language differs from the study setting and also the user who created the query, queries will display in the language according to where the query was created. Studies that operate in multiple countries with several languages should utilize the existing features for translations.

Use Case

Previously, system-generated queries were only displayed in the vault language, when users needed to see them in their user language. This feature adds flexibility for users to execute specific studies in locations where the sites, monitors, and data managers may not speak other languages.

Enablement

Contact Support or your Vault Admin to enable this feature on new studies. This setting can be enabled on a live study, but it will not backfill any records.

Studio Study Grade 24R1.4

We’ve added a new Study Grade tab in EDC to help guide Study Designers with Studio configurations. After a successful deployment from DEV to TEST, Vault will run a job to evaluate the study design and then log the results in an .xlsx formatted file. The resulting quantitative score is reviewed by a Veeva Services team member who provides a qualitative analysis, confirming or adjusting the scoring with an explanation alongside the automated results. User roles with the new View Study Grade and the Study Grade Tab permissions can access this feature. The following standard roles have been updated with these permissions:

  • CDMS Super User
  • CDMS User Administrator*
  • CDMS API Read Write
  • CDMS Auditor Read Only
  • CDMS Librarian
  • CDMS Study Designer
  • CDMS Study Designer Read Only

*CDMS User Administrator only has access to the Study Grade tab

Use Case

Studio Study Grade validates patterns as well as individual objects for compliance, simplicity, and performance. This feature helps Study Designers during the study development process with study design, data entry, and data extract considerations by identifying opportunities for further training.

Enablement

This feature is automatically available.

Relabeled Rule Actions 24R1.2

To clarify rule actions, the ‘floating’ parts of User Defined Rule Action Identifiers have been relabeled. When the Dynamic Action Scope is set to Global, unspecified parts of action labels that were previously labeled “this” are now labeled with “all”. Action labels have been revised for more specific Dynamic Action Scope scenarios, and also for repeating portions of the action identifiers. The revised action labels more accurately reflect the behavior of the rule, given configuration of the action identifier and the Dynamic Action Scope.
For example, with a Dynamic Action Scope set as Global, in the Add Form rule action where only the Form (VS) is specified, the identifier would have previously been seen as “this event” and will now have the following action label:

Add Form     all events  >  VS

Additionally, when a repeating identifier is specified, the label will reflect whether the action takes place on all instances or the current one. For example, when the Dynamic Action Scope is set as Global and the rule action is Add Event, the identifier would previously have only shown the Event Group name, but will now have the following action label:

Add Event     CYCLE (all)  >  DAY5

“This” is still used in rule action labels where appropriate, to indicate that the action will occur only on the current instance.
For Open Query rules, when the configured action is set to All Instances of a repeating Event Group, repeating Form or repeating Item Group, it will be reflected accordingly in the action label, seen as (all) within the rule action.

Use Case

Previously, the floating action labels caused confusion for study designers, particularly when selecting specific Dynamic Action Scopes. This update helps clarify where the rule will perform its defined action(s), reducing errors and rework needed to correct rules.

Enablement

Contact Veeva Support to enable this feature.


Study Administration

Features in this section apply to EDC Tools, a study-level administration area for Vault EDC.

Enablement Change: PDF Memory Optimization Enabled in All Vaults 24R1.2

In 24R1, Veeva improved the job performance for generating large Closeout and Detail PDFs through memory optimization. Initially, this update required enablement by Veeva Support at the vault level.

With this release, this feature will be applied to all vaults.

Use Case

This feature improves the generation of PDFs with audit trail for very large casebooks.

Enablement

This feature is now automatically enabled.

Rename Studies 24R1.3

With this release, users can rename a study from the My Studies page in EDC Tools. Users must have the Manage Deployments permission and access to all environments and sites in order to utilize this feature. The previously existing “Rename” dropdown option in My Studies has been updated to “Rename Environment.” Users can select the Edit icon next to a study to rename it. A Study Rename job will run automatically when a study is renamed, the results of which can be viewed in Deployment History.

Use Case

In some cases, users need to update the study name because the study had changed during the development phase. This feature allows users to rename the studies so they can have a clean environment in which to work.

Enablement

Contact Veeva Support to enable this feature.

Enablement Change: Frozen Form Support for Amendments Enabled in All Vaults 24R1.2

In 23R3, Veeva released the Frozen Form Support for Amendments feature, which streamlined the Retrospective Amendment process. This feature was initially enabled upon request to Veeva Support.

With the 24R2 release, this feature will be automatically enabled on all vaults.

When enabled, Vault automatically retains the frozen status on data that isn’t impacted and will unfreeze data as appropriate where there are changes to forms during a retrospective amendment.

After the retrospective amendment is applied:

  • If any of the following item properties are changed, the Item will be unfrozen: Type, Label, Short Label, Hint Label, Override Label
  • Unit/Codelist item label changes will not have an impact on Frozen status.
  • Form property changes (e.g. form label or description) will leave the form frozen
  • Event changes will leave the Event frozen
  • Frozen casebooks will remain frozen and can still process retro updates
  • Newly added Items, Item Groups, Forms, and Events will be added in an unfrozen state

Use Case

This feature allows the system more control regarding managing frozen data when running a retrospective amendment. As a result, Data Managers no longer have to manually unfreeze casebook data in order to apply the amendment.

Enablement

This feature is now automatically enabled.

PDF Enhancements: Include Organization & Site Number 24R1.2

When Detail, Closeout, and Assessment PDFs are generated, the name of the Organization (Sponsor) can now be included. When a Detail PDF is generated, the name of the site folder will now include the site number and the site name, as follows:

  • Folder name: 1001 - My Site

Use Case

These enhancements clarify sponsor and site information in PDF files and folders.

Enablement

For vaults that have enabled the Studio PDF feature from 24R1 to add Organization in the Studio PDF, the additional PDF updates for Organization will automatically be included with this setting. Contact Veeva Support if the feature wasn’t previously enabled in your vault. The addition of the Site Number to Detail PDF folders is automatically enabled.

VeevaID for CDMS Vault Training 24R1.4

Following the 24R2 general release, site users will use VeevaID to access and complete CDMS Vault Training, replacing the Absorb Learning Management System (LMS). Users will receive an email with a registration link, informing them that their Absorb LMS account is no longer valid and inviting them to register for VeevaID. Veeva SiteVault users already registered with VeevaID will receive a similar notification instructing them on using their existing VeevaID for CDMS Vault Training.

If the user hasn’t registered within 72 hours, the initial email will expire, and reminder emails with a new registration link will be sent. Reminder emails will expire two weeks after the initial email, according to the Platform setting. After two weeks, users will need to contact Support to re-initiate registration.

Use Case

This update initiates the VeevaID transition for Site users. VeevaID provides site users a single account to manage multiple sponsor and product application logins.

Enablement

This feature is available on new customer vaults following the 24R2 general release. Existing customers will work with Veeva to migrate site users to VeevaID for both CDMS and Vault Training, with migrations scheduled accordingly.

Vault Training for CDMS - Sponsor & Site User Migration 24R1.4

CDMS will connect to Vault Training, replacing the current System Tools connection to Absorb Learning Management System (LMS). Training records and statuses from Absorb LMS will be migrated to Vault Training, including curriculum enrollment and course progress. Incomplete courses must be restarted. Vault Training will offer a new instructional course on navigation, recommended but not required for users who’ve already completed training.

Existing users will be assigned a “Site” or “Sponsor” value in the new User Type field in System Tools > Users. The Retrieve Users and Upload Users (CSV and JSON) API calls will also include the User Type. Customers must include the appropriate “Site” or “Sponsor” User Type when creating users individually in System Tools, as well as in bulk via a CSV file or the Upload Users API. Once a User Type is saved, it becomes read-only. Warnings appear if a User Type does not match the role.

Upload Users API: All versions of the Upload Users API will be updated to include User Type.

A new column for User Type will be added to the User Export and User Training Report in System Tools > Users.

To view curricula and associated courses, select the Vault Training connection in System Tools. Training curricula assignments in EDC Tools remain unchanged for studies previously using the Enable Absorb Learning System setting. The study settings in EDC Tools are relabeled as Enable Learning System and Include Course Details in the Training Report.

Users can view training progress and access CDMS Training via the My Training link or directly at cdmstraining.veevavault.com. Those who have completed all required training can access studies with their existing CDMS login.

Training Completion: To maintain training completion and CDMS access, any training completed in Absorb LMS after August 2, 2024, will be updated in Veeva Training by August 16, 2024. Users will retain their completion status during this period.

Use Case

The connection to Vault Training eliminates third-party dependencies and limitations from the prior Absorb LMS. Vault Training allows Veeva to fully manage training for CDMS, reducing issues and allowing for better flexibility with training assignments. For sponsor users it provides a single login to both CDMS and Vault Training.

Enablement

This feature will be automatically available with the 24R2 general release. Sponsor users are automatically added to Vault Training as cross-domain users and will access it using their existing CDMS accounts. Site users will access Vault Training using VeevaID. Users with User Type “Site” will automatically be directed to login or register with VeevaID to access Vault Training.

Extract Job Governor Enhancements 24R1.2

With this release, we’ve added Audit Trail Export Jobs to the total scheduled job count for the Vault.

Note that there is a limit to the total number of scheduled jobs allowed in a Vault to help control the amount of scheduled jobs created across the System. When a scheduled job is added to the job governor framework, it must be included in the total count for the number of scheduled jobs in the Vault.

Use Case

This enhancement provides consistency for the Audit Trail Export job within the job governance framework.

Enablement

This feature is automatically enabled.

Study Data Extract Enhancements 24R1.2 24R1.3

With this release, users can send test data to validate Test Connection for External Connections. While setting up an External Connection, users can test the transfer of data. This new option sends the data file while testing the connection, and will alert the user once the file is sent successfully.

We’ve added a new file in the definitions folder called study_definitions.csv that includes the metadata for a Study.

Use Case

These updates improve usability.

Enablement

This feature is automatically enabled.


Clinical DataBase (CDB)

The following are new features for the CDB application, the Vault CDMS solution for data cleaning and reporting.

Availability: Clinical DataBase (CDB) is only available to CDB license holders. Contact your Veeva Services representative for details.

CDB Incremental Import 24R1.4

Data ingestion from Vault EDC will move to an incremental model, whereby every 15 minutes, any new data in vault will be processed into workbench. The updated data will be seen in core and custom listings. With incremental ingestion, the Import screen has been updated to group imports by source, and allows users with the Delete Data Sources permission to delete a third party data source.

Use Case

Incremental data ingestion allows for faster, more frequent updates to Veeva CDMS data into Workbench, and provides fresher data for review.

Enablement

Customer vaults will be migrated to the new ingestion model after the release, as determined by Veeva Product Management.

Reprocess Third Party Data 24R1.4

Third party data may contain information about sites, subjects, and events that have not yet been created in EDC, causing this data to not be ingested into CDB until there are matching values from EDC. This feature will ensure third party data is reprocessed at least every 24 hours to account for any new EDC data. Third party data is processed on ingestion of the data, and then a job will check the last processing time, and reprocess the data after 24 hours have passed since the last reprocessing.

Use Case

This feature allows for regular reprocessing of third party data, without over stressing the application by reprocessing every 15 minutes when new EDC data is ingested.

Enablement

These changes apply in vaults where the CDB Incremental Import feature is enabled.

Clean Patient Tracker Enhancements 24R1.3

Three new columns have been added to the Clean Patient Tracker on the Subjects page in Workbench. These columns provide counts of Overdue Forms, In-Progress Log Forms, and Incomplete Reviews by Subject. Incomplete Review counts are now considered in the definition of a clean patient. In addition, Event and Form progress reports can now be downloaded from the Clean Patient Tracker.

Use Case

Overdue Form and In-Progress Form columns provide a more complete picture of data entry for a Subject, including the review listing status. The review listing status allows data managers to identify when a subject’s reviews are incomplete, facilitating better tracking at the subject-level.

Enablement

Incomplete Reviews by Subject is available for studies utilizing Review Listings. All other Clean Patient Tracker enhancements require incremental EDC ingestion.

CDB API: Query Source Information 24R1.4

New query source information from the EDC Queries API (Source System and Source ID) will be ingested into CDB and appear in the CDB Origination System and Origination ID fields, respectively. This change will be visible in CDB Query Listings and @QRY attributes in CQL.

The origin_sys field is limited to 100 characters when set through the CDB Open Query API.

Use Case

EDC can now receive query source information through the EDC Query APIs.

Enablement

This feature is automatically enabled, contingent upon query data coming via API to EDC.

Listing Usability Enhancements 24R1.3

With this release, we made multiple enhancements to listing display in CDB Workbench and Clinical Reporting:

  • Listings will now display up to 100 rows in a single page.
  • The listing grids provide the option to Expand the grid to hide the listing header and details.
  • The Cell Details panel has been made responsive to improve the user experience.
  • There is a new Reset filter and sort option to return a listing to its original definition.
  • The object summary and deletion logs are now accessible from the Dashboard action menu (CDB Workbench only).

Use Case

These improvements increase the usability of listings pages and experience when working on a smaller screen, such as a laptop.

Enablement

These enhancements are available automatically.

New Set Review Permission 24R1.3

With this release, we added a new permission, Set Review Status, to control the ability to modify the Review Status of a row in a review listing. This permission is automatically assigned to the CDMS Data Manager and CDMS Lead Data Manager study roles. If your organization uses custom roles, you must assign this permission manually.

Use Case

The permission allows customers to determine if their custom roles with access to CDB Workbench should have the ability to set the status of a review listing, allowing for a read-only type role in CDB.

Enablement

This new permission is automatically available. It is assigned to the CDMS Data Manager and CDMS Lead Data Manager study roles.


Integrations

Features in this section are new integrations with Vault CDMS or enhancements to existing integrations.

Visit Cycles for Payments 24R1.3

The definition of Event Groups, Event Labels, and Sequences for repeating visits, along with any updates, will now be transferred to CTMS via the ClinOps - EDC Connection.

Use Case

Having the visit sequence in CTMS allows customers to create cycle-based visit fees. Customers can also define and apply different fees for the same visit based on the visit cycle.

Enablement

The new integration point will be activated for all customers who utilize the ClinOps - EDC Connection for Visits.

Query Source Information - EDC & API 24R1.3

As of 24R2, queries from other systems can be pushed into EDC using the CDMS API. The following query source information can be added to Query API post requests:

  • Source type
  • Source system
  • Source user
  • Source ID

The query source information will be shown in both the Data Entry UI and the Review UI when the query’s source type is “external.” The query source information can be retrieved via the Query API and available in the following locations:

  • Audit Trail
  • Query Detail Listing
  • Study Data Extracts

Use Case

EDC data is propagated to various external systems (for example, Safety and JReview). Data queries are generated in external systems and then back-propagated to EDC. To support the visibility and traceability of the external query source and the querying user, query source information can be added to EDC via the CDMS Query API and displayed in the EDC UI for the end user.

Enablement

This enhancement is automatically enabled when using the 24R2 CDMS API for posting and retrieving queries. For more details regarding the CDMS Query API, refer to the CDMS API Developer Portal.

Vault Safety - EDC Connection Transfers Local Lab Test Results 24R1.3

In addition to the actual case data, the Vault Safety - EDC Connection transfers safety-relevant subject data for look-up and case assessment in Vault Safety. From 24R2, this data can be complemented with Local Lab test results from EDC that have been collected in a configurable time frame of given days before and after the SAE start date.

Use Case

The assessment of a safety case often requires insights into additional subject data beyond the actual case data. Now also Local Lab Test Results can be made available for pharmacovigilance to act on a serious adverse event or event of special interest.

Enablement

These enhancements are available automatically.

Vault Safety - EDC Connection: Support for Vault Safety Custom Fields 24R1.3

The Vault Safety - EDC Connection now supports both Vault Safety standard and custom fields for data transfer to Vault Safety. The new fields will be available for mapping in the Item Configuration step for the respective Safety Form Type after configuration in Vault EDC. While the field types in Safety must be considered during configuration in EDC, the codelist items for (auto-)mapping can be automatically read from Vault Safety.

Use Case

The Vault Safety standard fields cover most use cases for data required from EDC for evaluation by pharmacovigilance. However, in some instances, additional data points from custom Vault Safety fields are required for the case assessment. These can now also be transferred from Vault EDC to Vault Safety via the Connection similar to Vault Safety standard fields.

Enablement

This feature is automatically available, but it requires configuration by a user with the Vault Owner security profile.

Copy Form Designs with Safety Integration Configuration 24R1.3

When copying forms from another Study or a Library study with an identical Safety Integration Type setting, the user can now choose to include or exclude the copying of the Safety Integration configurations with the respective form.

Copying forms with the Safety Integration configurations requires the Manage Safety Configuration permission. In this release, this permission was granted to the CDMS Librarian standard role.

Use Case

To support a fast study build, the Safety Integration configurations can now also be built as a standard in Library studies and copied into a new study from there or from another study.

Enablement

This enhancement is automatically enabled.

Safety Integration Enhancements & Additional E2B Standard Fields 24R1.3

For both the Vault Safety - EDC Connection and the E2B Link, the Datetime Value Behavior for datetime field transfer can now be determined (sent in site time or UTC).

The E2B Link has been enhanced to allow the configuration of additional Safety Settings, including the Study Name Value (C.5.2) and Sponsor Study Number Value (C.5.3) as well as the roll-up behavior for the Action Taken with the Study Drug. Additionally, the following new E2B fields can be mapped and added to the safety case transfer:

Safety Form Type E2B ID E2B Element Data Type Notes
Serious Adverse Events E.i.1.2 Reaction / Event as Reported by the Primary Source for Translation Text (250) Some safety systems are configured to use this field in E2B as well as E.i.1.1a, the field for verbatim. The common use of this field is to map the same field as E.i.1.1a
Serious Adverse Events D.3 Body Weight (kg) Number (6) For numeric item definitions, ensure the user knows to enter in kg. Otherwise, use a unit codelist field with standard unit of kg. For multiple events in a safety case, the answer from the primary SAE is used.
Serious Adverse Events D.4 Height (cm) Number (3) For numeric item definitions, ensure the user knows to enter in cm. Otherwise, use a unit codelist field with standard unit of cm. Fractional portion is rounded, as this E2B location only allows whole numbers. For multiple events in a safety case, the answer from the primary SAE is used.
Serious Adverse Events D.6 Last Menstrual Period Date Datetime For multiple events in a safety case, the answer from the primary SAE is used.
Serious Adverse Events H.4 Sender's Comments Text (20000) Use a repeating or non repeating item group with this field, but seperate from the E.* fields. Using a repeating item group allows a user to add more fields when they need to go further than 1500 characters.
Medical History D.7.1.r.1a / D.7.1.r.1b Medical History MedDRA Coding and Version (Coding / Version) For coding on the medical history, the single verbatim field can be mapped here, and also mapped in the Comments field. Or, seperate fields can be used for each, however, the coding location in E2B is ONLY the coding, no verbatim text.
Study Drug G.k.8 Action(s) Taken with Drug Number (1) Like G.k.1, this is additional information answered about a linked ConMed from back on the SAE form itself.
Study Drug G.k.9.i.2.r.3 Result of Assessment Text (60) Like G.k.1, this is additional information answered about a linked ConMed from back on the SAE form itself.
Study Drug G.k.9.i.4 Did Reaction Recur on Re-administration? Number (1) Like G.k.1, this is additional information answered about a linked ConMed from back on the SAE form itself.

Use Case

To further support the transfer of EDC data to any Safety system, the Safety Setting options as well as the mappable fields have been expanded. This will increase the amount of data that is automatically transferred from EDC and available for pharmacovigilance to assess the safety case in their system.

Enablement

These enhancements are available automatically.

Vault Safety - EDC Connection Configurations in the SDS 24R1.3

The Safety Integration configurations for the Vault Safety - EDC Connection are now reflected in the Study Design Specifications (SDS) in the ‘Safety Settings’ and ‘Safety Form Configurations’ tabs.

Use Case

To support the build and review of the Safety Integration configurations during study build, these are now available in the SDS for both the Vault Safety - EDC Connection and E2B Link.

Enablement

This change applies automatically.

Vault Safety - EDC Connection Subject Deletion Support 24R1.3

The Vault Safety - EDC Connection now supports the propagation of a full and formal subject deletion to Vault Safety. For each SAE of the deleted subject, an inbox item will be created in Vault Safety so that pharmacovigilance can act accordingly on a full subject deletion similar to the individual deletion of an SAE.

Use Case

Pharmacovigilance must be informed of the deletion of individual SAEs and also a full and formal subject deletion by the site in EDC to be able to timely void or nullify each case of the deleted subject.

Enablement

This enhancement is automatically enabled.


Migration Vault

Features in this section are new features for Migration Vault.

Support for DMR 24R1.2 24R1.3

Migration Vault now manages the migration of Data Management Review (DMR) attributes from the Legacy EDC System. This includes applying DMR attributes at the Casebook, Form, and Item levels and ensuring that both DMR and Source Data Verification (SDV) attributes are applied during the migration process.

Use Case

This feature expands migration support for workflows found in the Legacy EDC System.

Enablement

This feature is automatically available when DMR is set in the Attributes CSV File.

YAML Builder 24R1.2 24R1.3

This release adds a YAML Builder within Migration Vault to support the creation of mapping files for study migrations.

For Forms without repeating Item Groups, the system generates a single YAML mapping file for each form definition retrieved from the CDMS target Study. For Forms with repeating Item Groups, the system generates a single YAML mapping file for each repeating Item Group definition retrieved from the CDMS target Study.

After the YAML file generation is complete, the user receives a notification. The YAML file is then placed in the Attachments section. It can be manually modified and re-uploaded if needed, for example, if the source definition name does not match the Veeva EDC definition.

All users with Migrator, System Administrator, or Vault Owner access to Migration Vault can access the YAML Builder, if enabled.

Use Case

With this feature, Migration customers can now generate most of their Form YAML mapping files directly from their study’s EDC Studio design.

Enablement
