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.

Working with different environments

Hello all,

I'd like to use OpenClinica to implement validated studies.
The CRFs need to be designed in one environment and tested in another.
A 3rd production environment is needed to enter the subject data.

It is important that these steps can be performed separately without the risk of unwanted side effects like loss of data etc.

So far I've only heard about the possibility to install OC on different servers and copy databases.
Is there a better way for a release process?

Thanks in advance! :)

    Unfortunately not. We use scripts to setup the studies automatically but these are only for internal use and I can't make them public available.
    There is a browser test tool called "Selenium" that can be used to record user activities and replay them later.
    So you can setup the study once and replay it for the other two instances.

    Hello Christian,

    thank you very much for your reply.
    I was just made aware of the fact that OC Enterprise offers this functionality.

    Kind regards,
