Who enters data into the data collection system (OpenClinica)? Does the patient enter their own information?
At this time, data is obtained by site staff via the patient’s medical history or during patient visits and is entered by the site staff into OpenClinica. NARCRMS also recommends that data be entered directly into the OpenClinica system as collected and not be copied from paper CRF forms into the data system. Over time, other avenues for data entry may be developed such as patient-reported outcomes.
