Linking multiple CRF's

We are pretty new in Study Design and OpenClinica.
For a study we will be supporting, we are designing a data entry application running on an embedded Linux device that should generate ODM documents to be imported into OpenClinica.
We intend to realize a high degree of similarity with the web interface of OpenClinica.
Each ODM document will contain multiple forms.
I get the feeling that each individual form in the ODM definition should map with a CRF in OpenClinica.
In the UI of OpenClinica we would like to show multiple (5) CRF's in one single dialogue. Is that possible, for example by using sections.
Or should we link multiple CRF's in a workflow? How should we do that?
Any comments or hints are highly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.

  • Hi Frank,

    The easiest way would be to make each CRF a section so you could click on the tabs to get through to each form. The caveat here is that, as another poster has pointed out, we do not import 'SectionDef' in our ODM currently, so the five-section CRF would have to be treated as one form in your ODM output.

    You could also set up five CRFs in a Study Definition, and then the user would just use the one event as their workflow. Do you think that would be better for you?

    Best, Tom

    Yes, I think that that would be the easiest way for the enduser.
    It would also be easy to do in our dataentry app. where we can easily use tabs in the UI.

    I think we should start with two little prototypes to see what is the best approach.
