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.

Can I add multiple Study Subjects at the same time?

I would like to add multiple study subjects at the same time? Is that possible?
After that I would like to upload subject data for all subjects at the same time. This is a study, where data has been collected into Excel, and I am trying to build the study and populate it with data in OpenClinica.

Can anybody help? I would highly appreciate it. Thank you!!

    Hi Silke

    I guess it is not possible otherwise somebody else would have told you how to do it.
    Is there a special reason to do it all at once or was this just a kind of "is this feature available" question?

    This not something that you can do directly via OC user interface however, you can use additional extensions that do all the necessary orchestration (SS creations, Event scheduling, XML data transformation and import). This task is not something for beginners. You will have to invest some time to find to extension that fits your need and learn how to use it. Check the OC extensions page to find a proper data import utility:

    Dear Tomas and Christian,
    thank you for the links.
    The reason why I want to upload data for multiple samples and multiple visits at the same time is that this study started two years ago with study management being done at a different site which did not use OC but Excel spreadsheets.

    looking at the links, it truly seems that adding multiple samples at the same time will not be an easy task...

    Do you have any recommendations on how to accomplish this task as a non-programmer?

    Is this something that will be available in the near future?

    I would appreciate your help..

    Hi Silke,
    Did you have a look at ?
    It is an MsAccess-tool I use for creating subjects and scheduling events. Most of the time I have to modify it slightly to fit specific requirements, but the basis is always the same.
    If you need further explaining, please let me know.
    Kind regards,
    Gerben Rienk
