Insight makes it easy to ask questions of ALL of your clinical and operational data and visualize answers via interactive reports and dashboards. The idea is simple, but the results are powerful: ask your questions, choose your visualizations, then return often for updated, interactive results that link you to all of the underlying data.

Data extraction speed

Greetings and Happy New year 2016.

I want to know, how long does it take to prepare a data set available to download.

Because it says, Your extract is running, You can continue doing other things.

In our study, we have 17 CRF with 1000 patients so far. For every CRF, we made data set ready, which shows available, but the links are not being shown to download.

Today i tried to see links, no link i found. Then i again clicked on export data set, select excel, then some link came, by doing back and forth in openclinica window.

What exactly is a time to wait for data to be ready.

How can we increase speed of it. Is it because number of patients are being increased. Around a year ago, when we had 200 patients, this was not the case.

Thanks and Regards

    The extraction speed is very much depending on your server capacity, number of kernels etc! With this many patients it may very well take 30-60 minutes.
