I am going to make the assertion that it seems like a mistake to have this external dependency for randomization. It is just one more thing that weakens a web application by using external services where one does not have the full control that a built-in solution offers. An external service also makes difficult if not impossible to have the desired coupling with internal actions such as just-in-time inventory control of clinical trial kits.
Our upcoming Randomization module will be built-in with all of the benefits of being so.

Hi Tony and Giada,
In my experience it is possible to implement a randomization module integrated within an architecture stack like OpenClinica. With ClinCapture, we are rolling out a randomization solution built on top of randomize.net, provided by Biometrix.
1. One sided authentication
2. Loose configuration options
3. Support for unique trial Ids or multiple trial Ids
4. Support for both XML and JSON
5. Assignment to subjects
The code is already being included in our developer's releases of ClinCapture; if you would like more details about our solution, you can contact me off-list.
Hope that helps, Tom

we often develope RCT and we use to build a study web site for randomization / unblinding connected to OC db, adding a link to it in the CRF. But it's just an "external" solution...

Do you have any suggestion on how can i used randomization in the OC? does OC support randomization?
Thank you very much.
