Age computation

Dear all,
OpenClinica takes date of birth at patient registration and auto computes the age of the patient at enrollment. This auto computed age is always displayed at data entry screen for each patient. This syntax that auto computes the age, can it be extended to compute a patient age within the formal CRF section? The problem with the above auto computed age is that it can't be extracted with other data.Would it also be possible to have date functions in Excel sheet that can auto compute age and check sequence of dates i.e date of birth should come before date of enrollment.
thank you always
Moses

  • Hello Moses,
    Age at Event can be extracted. When you create a dataset you would
    select 'Subject Attributes' and 'Age at Event'.
    Rules can be written to validate that a date is prior to another,
    however rules can only run on CRF item variables (if you wanted to write
    the rule that you are speaking of ,you would have to include those
    variables within a CRF).
    I hope this is helpful.
    Best Regards,
    Alicia
