Workshop One: The Art of the Possible: Insight Dashboards & Reporting

In this full-day workshop you will dive into the best-kept secrets of OpenClinica Insight. You’ll learn how to take full advantage of built-in reporting and dashboard creation to get your job done easier, faster and more accurately than ever before. It’s past time to ditch spreadsheet reporting and let purpose-built technology do the heavy lifting for you.

Suitable for: All skill levels

Learning objectives: You’ll walk away knowing:

    • What data are in Insight and how they are organized
    • Where to find key data reports across: clinical data, statuses, summary-level study information, SDV, Queries and audit logs
    • How to build and use both basic and advanced visualizations using built-in tools
    • How to build dashboards for yourself and external stakeholders
    • What the basics of relational databases are and their value to Insight success
    • How to combine data from different tables
    • What SQL is, how to craft SQL queries, and which built-in tools help you work with SQL in Insight

We’ll also explore advanced Insight capabilities such as embedded reporting on PDP, Participate or third-party apps; segments and metrics; URL generation for linking to OC pages.

Workshop Two: Advanced Form Building & Logic Calculations

Are you ready to take your OpenClinica form-building skills to the next level? This full-day workshop will cover best practices for creating eCRFs and advanced XPath calculations to help you optimize your study efficiency and data quality. In a step-by-step process, you will add new techniques and skills across key form concepts. We’ll explore guiding principles of study design; design roles and responsibilities, how to create libraries, manage timelines, develop time-saving cross-form calculations, and how to test your study design process before implementation.

Suitable for: Users who have either attended super user training or have some form building experience.

Learning objective: You’ll walk away knowing:

    • How to improve data quality with form design best practices and study build methodologies
    • How to improve data reliability through cross form calculations and error checking methods
    • How to use complex calculations to process, move, and reuse data for skip logic and edit checks
    • When and how to use XPath expressions
    • How to add filters to your expressions to target specific datasets based on user entered data

We’ll also focus on developing the problem-solving skills you need to walk through any form-building challenge.
