Prelude EDC Dashboard: The Future of Study Monitoring is Here
By Tommy Jackson on December 7, 2017
With the newest advancement of Prelude EDC’s Dashboard tool, monitoring your study or trial has never been easier or more adaptable! With more monitoring capability located in one place, you have the power to review what you need at a glance and dive deeper for further review.
Gone are the days of scattered summaries and reports. With the updated Dashboard you can now monitor what you want, when you want and all on one page with data summaries that you control. At Prelude Dynamics, we understand the importance of quick, convenient monitoring that you don’t have to dig for and in this article we’ll showcase some enhancements to the Dashboard that give you exactly that!
Similar to a news feed, Prelude EDC’s Dashboard enables you to decide what data criteria you want to see. No matter what your data monitoring preferences are, we give you full control to arrange and filter your data within the dashboard to your needs while also including fundamental tracking tools like a Quick Stat overview, messaging module, and a built-in study calendar. Real-time data reports and summaries are now all conveniently located in one place – the Prelude EDC Dashboard.
To access the Dashboard, simply click the dedicated Dashboard icon in the main navigation while logged into Prelude EDC:
When you first arrive you’ll be prompted to take an automated tour of the new dashboard features. One new feature is that your dashboard is fully configurable to show you the data that you need to monitor. You can choose from a variety of summaries, graphs and charts, display the ones you want, hide those you don’t and sort them in any order. Just click the +/- icon to show a list of active and disabled summary modules. Any module you want to view, simply drag it into the “Active” column, click Save and you’re done! Your dashboard is customized and you are ready to monitor.
The Dashboard has 3 Main sections: Overview, Messages and Calendar…
In the Overview section, the Quick Stats module lets you select from important monitoring data counts, like: number of adverse events, serious adverse events, monthly enrollment, number of unresolved queries or total queries, form status data and more. You can then add numerous charts and graphs showing at-a glance visual representation of various data within the study.
Within Overview, you decide which data points to monitor and in what order they are displayed. For a more detailed breakdown on any of the summaries, simply click on the label to access additional information which will display within a table or chart.
In the Messages section, notifications are conveniently displayed in a list so you can quickly review sent or pending notifications, acknowledge them or even compose new ones. The list can also be filtered by category such as adverse event, new patients enrolled, queries, protocol deviations and more to show you only what you want to see.
In the Calendar section, you get a view of the current month showing personal, site and study created events that are color-coded to help keep track of each. You can navigate to view past, present and future months, add and schedule new events and filter them by type to focus on only those events that are relevant to you to help plan and schedule accordingly.
As a Monitoring tool, the Dashboard is a comprehensive one-stop shop. You can pull in any existing subject, site or user summary or any ad-hoc report that you created. This provides you with the ability to view all the important study data in one place, and eliminates the need to click through reports and summaries in separate locations.
It gets even better! You can now also filter the dashboard by a given site or view data for all the sites as a whole. Each report and summary can be filtered separately by any custom search you create. If you want to see only data for enrolled patients, select that filter. Create new reports and filters at any time and they become immediately available for use in the dashboard. You can even pull in shared reports and searches from other users.
That’s a quick dive into our enhanced Dashboard monitoring tool available for all studies with our newest version of Prelude EDC. At Prelude, we believe in the power of convenience, configuration, and time-saving tools for you and your team. Welcome to the Prelude EDC Dashboard!
