OpenEDC is coming soon
We are currently working on the app and will release the public beta in a couple of weeks.
From Thesis to Clinical Trial
OpenEDC is the ideal solution for all types of research projects. From surveys during a doctoral thesis, to clinical outcomes study, to multi-centric studies. The modular concept allows the solution to be customized for every requirement.
Students and individual researchers can use OpenEDC locally on their own computers – without installation or registration. Surveys are easy to set up in compliance with the data protection regulations.
Clinics and practices can use OpenEDC to evaluate and continuously improve the outcome of their therapies. An app for patients allows user-friendly and digital follow-up. Interactive statistics provide insights in real time.
OpenEDC enables university hospitals, institutes and other research institutions to conduct large longitudinal and multi-centric trials such as registries and epidemiological studies. With the option of distributed data storage.
Prospectively, OpenEDC will also help medical product as well as drug manufacturers and Clinical Research Organizations to conduct clinical trials. Fully AMG, MPG, DSGVO, GCP and HIPAA compliant.
A Variety of Opportunities
OpenEDC offers you all the essential functions to implement your research project quickly and easily.
Start creating powerful forms, data tables and capturing information without registering. Everything runs solely on your computer or your mobile device. OpenEDC sets up a local database in your browser. Unless you explicitly choose to share data, no information will ever leave your computer.
OpenEDC is designed from the bottom up for extensibility. Use modules and question types that fit your research project. For example, you can integrate a high-security pseudonymisation service with just a few clicks or use a versatile document and file management system with all your colleagues.
OpenEDC builds on established data standards in medicine. So you can be sure that your data is collected in a sustainable format and can be further analysed by your colleagues. You can also easily connect OpenEDC with existing applications in your clinic and thereby import laboratory values, for example.
OpenEDC offers many features to support you with your study.
- Create intuitively even complex forms with conditional questions and calculated fields.
- Manage all participants of your trial – also completely pseudonymised if required.
