I'm curious about something regarding electronic signatures and OpenClinica.. When I read the part 11 document I thought I needed to record the actual signing and include certain data points (we have had different QA consultants expect different things in this regards so maybe its not a standard practice).. anyway I'll paste the part 11 doc I'm referring to below.. b ut basically when I see that I read that I need to record the name, datetime, and meaning.. I don't see this anywhere in OC.. am I missing it????
