New EDC Feature for POC and Phase 1 studies
By Tommy Jackson on May 21, 2020
Prelude announces a new EDC feature that streamlines data entry for Proof of Concept (POC) or Phase 1 studies. Multiple Subject Data Entry allows users to enter data for multiple subjects at the same time using a single form. Users can configure this form at the site level by selecting the subject level forms and fields for entry. Filters can then be used to select a subset of subjects for processing.
Prelude EDC will post the data to the each subjects’ eCRFs once the data entry is complete. The system will also update the audit trail so that the field changes are attributed correctly. If errors or warnings resulted from the data entry, the subject list page can used to quickly identify those subjects and forms.
This feature is very useful when values are collected for subjects in rapid succession (e.g., taking everyone’s vital signs or, for animal studies, counting fleas). In such instances, data is typically manually entered on a clipboard and then transcribed to EDC. Transcription typically requires navigating from subject to subject, which can be error prone and time consuming. Use of Multiple Subject Data Entry eases transcription and facilitates using the EDC as eSOURCE.
The new Multiple Subject Data Entry feature was designed to offer an extreme level of efficiency for users. It is easy to configure and easy to use. This feature in combination with our powerful EDC, CTMS and CDMS functionality truly makes Prelude EDC an industry leader.
