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.

RE: [Developers] the ODM MetaData of the OpenClinica ODM xmlexportproblem!

Hi Jozef and Jim,

In OpenClinica 3.0.3 there was a bug with duplicate ItemGroupDef’s which was a result of removing the –FormOID from each particular ItemGroupDef in the metadata.

This has been resolved in 3.0.4.

I checked the export with the "CDISC ODM Checker" (which is freely available for CDISC members) and indeed found that there is a lot wrong with this export.
The 3 mentioned ItemGroups are each twice defined within the same MetaDataVersion, which is a violation of the standard.
Even worse is that each of the two ItemGroupDefs with the same OID contain different ItemRefs. This then again leads to serious problems when checking the clinical data.

The "checking report" can be obtained from me by a separate (off-list) mail.

With best regards,

Jozef Aerts
