Prepopulation of data according to previous CRF's

Hello all,

I wondered if there is a possibility to pre-populate data in a CRF from a recent CRF.
For instance, if entering the height value in the first visit CRF will cause automatic pre-population of the height value in the CRF’s assigned for Follow-Up visits.

Thanks,

Liora

    Hi Liora,

    I would rather remove height from the follow-up visits unless you are working with growing children. In that case you wouldn’t want to pre-populate the value anyhow!

  • Hi again,

    In the study CRF the height is required in every visit in order to calculate the BMI. I designed a calculation within the CRF that depends on the patients weight, mostly changes along the study and height assumed to stay constant. For this reason I wanted the height to be automatically updated in the following visits CRF’s.

    Any idea how this might be done would be appreciated.

    Now I understand. This could probably be accomplished via a rule where you would use the height as a constant, i.e. the OID for the HEIGHT variable during the initial visit will serve as the constant for all subsequent BMI calculations. I’m sure that this could be accomplished by one of the programmers in the user group. Maybe you can ask them for help? I would have loved to try it out but I’m leaving for an extended trip tomorrow so I do not have the time.

    Krister,

    How can you use height as a constant across all subjects?

    Additionally, I thought rules were used to identify discrepancies, not to calculate values.

    Could you please explain a little further?

  • Hi Mihai / Krister,

    In OpenClinica 3.0.x this is not possible; however, in OpenClinica 3.1 this will be possible. An insert action will be added to the rules and it should be possible to populate the value from other values.

    One workaround for now would be to collect the field in each form and write a rule that checks to make sure the value matches what was previously entered, though this would not populate the value, only check that it is accurate.

    Best,
    Alicia

    Thank you for the clarification.

    When will the insert action occur, when the form loads or when the user clicks Save? I am thinking it would be the latter, but I just want to make sure.

    That sounds really nice :)
    Rules are fired when user hits the Save button, which makes perfect sense
    in the way that the function of rules is to evaluate data. Actions, on the
    other hand, aren't necessarily involved in evaluation of data, but are
    highly usable in data presentation. Therefore I think it would be a great
    improvement if Actions could be fired when opening a page (a CRF, a Section
    or perhaps when adding/removing a row in a Group) to e.g. prepopulate
    fields.
    Best regards,
    Janus

    Your question should really be answered by Akaza. My thought was to use that is stored in the HEIGHT OID and utilize that in a rule or calculated field. It should be possible!!

    Subject: RE: [Users] Prepopulation of data according to previous CRF's

    Now I understand. This could probably be accomplished via a rule where you would use the height as a constant, i.e. the OID for the HEIGHT variable during the initial visit will serve as the constant for all subsequent BMI calculations. I’m sure that this could be accomplished by one of the programmers in the user group. Maybe you can ask them for help? I would have loved to try it out but I’m leaving for an extended trip tomorrow so I do not have the time.

    Hi again,

    In the study CRF the height is required in every visit in order to calculate the BMI. I designed a calculation within the CRF that depends on the patients weight, mostly changes along the study and height assumed to stay constant. For this reason I wanted the height to be automatically updated in the following visits CRF’s.

    Any idea how this might be done would be appreciated.

    Hi Liora,

    I would rather remove height from the follow-up visits unless you are working with growing children. In that case you wouldn’t want to pre-populate the value anyhow!

    Subject: [Users] Prepopulation of data according to previous CRF's

    Hello all,

    I wondered if there is a possibility to pre-populate data in a CRF from a recent CRF.
    For instance, if entering the height value in the first visit CRF will cause automatic pre-population of the height value in the CRF’s assigned for Follow-Up visits.

    Thanks,

    Liora

    Hi,

    I knew I had heard it somewhere. I’ll try it in OC 3.1 as soon as I get the beta! Cab we expect the beta soon? I was very impressed with the alfa

    Hi Mihai / Krister,

    In OpenClinica 3.0.x this is not possible; however, in OpenClinica 3.1 this will be possible. An insert action will be added to the rules and it should be possible to populate the value from other values.

    One workaround for now would be to collect the field in each form and write a rule that checks to make sure the value matches what was previously entered, though this would not populate the value, only check that it is accurate.

    Best,
    Alicia

    Krister,

    How can you use height as a constant across all subjects?

    Additionally, I thought rules were used to identify discrepancies, not to calculate values.

    Could you please explain a little further?

    Thanks,

    Mihai
