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.

Specific code question regarding

in the UserAccountDAO class in getEntityFromHashMap you have code that excludes loading roles for users with a period in the username.. is there a reason for this? I would be using email addresses for usernames

if (!userName.contains(".")){
ArrayList userRoleBeans = (ArrayList) this.findAllRolesByUserName(eb.getName());

    I think this was introduced in order to support automatic user account creation for patients reporting their outcomes via OC Participate. In this case such user account is only relevant for data submission and cannot be used for login, so it does not have any particular role associated.

    the username for such automated patient account was constructed as:
    studyBean.getOid() + "." + studySubjectBean.getOid()

    in newest version of OC now there is a web service which Participate use to create the user accounts for patients, however the user name is still provided in a fashion I described above.

    hope it helps
