Prelude Dynamics, LLC, has released some exciting new enhancements to the VISION™ Reports tool. This function of their Electronic Data Capture (EDC) system allows users to view data according to the criteria of their choosing at any point in the study. Reports can be saved, shared with other users, and added to each user’s Dashboard for convenience.
Users can now…
- Easily specify report content using a drag and drop interface.
- Include data from forms in multiple visit days (e.g., Physical Exams across all visits)
- Sort results by any column’s ascending or descending order by clicking on the column header
- Filter fields by typing into a field at the top of each column
- Download any report into Excel with a new and improved interface
The Reports feature of VISION™ has always been a useful data management solution, and is one of many ways to ensure data ingegrity. All clinical staff have the ability to create sets of reports that help them focus in on important data such as clinical end points. The ability to export these reports is a valuable tool for bio-statisticians and project managers alike. Now, clinical trial conduct and management have gotten even easier with Prelude’s addition of a convenient, new user interface.
Prelude constantly strives to assist the health industry in their pursuit to bring innovative pharmaceuticals to consumers. Stay tuned for even more updates from Prelude as we make it easier than ever to conduct a successful clinical trial.

VISION’s user-friendly tools for customizing forms includes a handy tool known as the dynamic drop-down. This deceivingly simple field packs a lot of punch. While you can leave the drop-down menu as just that, a menu and nothing more, did you know that you can also use this menu to populate other fields or even populate it from other fields?
A great place to use this tool is on the Adverse Events and Concomitant Medications forms, so that the two can communicate with each other. If a con med gets administered to a subject due to an adverse event, both need to be documented. Using a dynamic drop-down menu on each form for the relevant subject saves a great deal of time and streamlines documentation. Once it is noted on the con med form that a medication was administered after an adverse event, then a menu appears with all previously entered adverse events for that subject. Simply select the correct event, and now the medication and adverse event are linked. Vice versa, If an adverse event required the administration of a medication in a subject, then you can select from a drop-down menu on the adverse events form all previously entered con meds.
This tool opens the door to many more opportunities for customization and, therefore, simplification of data-entry. Signature drop-down menus can either be populated from another field, i.e., from a list of names, or be role-based, meaning the names of every user who has been assigned a specified role will appear as an option. The menu for the reason a subject was withdrawn can be pre-populated conditionally, e.g., only if the subject was euthanized. This would save the investigator time as there would be no need to answer a slew of unnecessary questions to close out a patient. The transcribed CRF form features a drop-down menu that can be based on all forms or form groups, or it can include or exclude specific forms or form groups. Dynamic drop-downs can even communicate between subjects and sites, e.g., when updating con med and adverse event dictionaries.
