Overview of Veeva eConsent

Veeva eConsent enables study participants, signatories, and site staff to sign informed consent forms (ICFs) electronically, eliminating the need to print the forms and speeding up the consenting process. Participants and their signatories can review the forms at home on a familiar device, can read at their own pace, and can easily download and share the forms with their family and care team. Additionally, participants with accessibility requirements can zoom in and utilize screen readers.

The process of consenting participants into a study using Veeva eConsent uses the following general steps:

  1. The site staff creates, edits, and approves the ICF or ICFs in SiteVault and the Veeva eConsent editor.
  2. The site staff sends the ICF or ICFs to the participant and their signatories (if additional signatories are needed) in SiteVault.
  3. The participant and signatories review, sign, and submit the study ICFs in MyVeeva for Patients.
  4. The site staff (the approver on the sent ICF) countersigns the ICF in SiteVault.

See the Consent page on the MyVeeva for Patients Help website for more information about the participant’s experience during the eConsent process.
