Using OpenClinica with CaTissue

Are there any suggestions on easy ways for a scientific researcher to access both deidentified clinical information stored in OpenClinica with specimen availability in CaTissue? I was told that using I2B2 it would take our clinical IT person 3 months to extract the data, which sounds like a more expensive way to do things.

    Hi Tamrind,

    Which version of caTissue are you using?

    Deploying and using i2b2 can be a mammoth task and is an overkill for this purpose.

    Latest versions of caTissue (not OpenSpecimen) has direct integration between OpenSpecimen and OpenClinica. I will be happy to share further details with you.

    Hi Sri,
    Thanks for your response. We are currently using caTissue Plus v3.2. I would be very interested to learn more about how these could be integrated.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Sri,

    Perhaps it would make sense to list OpenClinica-OpenSpecimen integration as an extension on ttps://community.openclinica.com/extensions?
