VISTA RDC rdc.eortc.be EORTC Remote Data Capture System For trials that started before 01/01/2009
What is Vista RDC? Vista RDC is the web based Remote Data Capture application designed to enable the investigator, DM or RN to enter and edit data on-line and to send the CRF to the EORTC database. VISTA-RDC: User-friendly Runs in a standard web browser (internet) Does not require installation of any specific software
RDC is not used for … Patient registration Reporting SAE QoL forms …
Log-In page Documentation Request username & password Account study / patients complete and/or sign (documented on the signature log) Login
Main page Study box contains « your » studies
List of patients List of « your » patients appears automatically after study selection List of « your » patients appears automatically after study selection Move to the next / previous page (25 pts per page) Move to the next / previous page (25 pts per page)
Patients’ status overview nb of patients with requested forms nb of patients with incomplete forms nb of patients with complete forms Click on the blue text to display the list of these patients
Select a patient Or open the patient ‘file’ by clicking on a patient Open the patient ‘file’ by entering the seqID
Create an e-CRF – tab ‘Blank’
Create an e-CRF - Requested forms Form nb Form name Reason why form is requested The form can be created by clicking on ‘create’ If CRF has not been sent in due time, missing form queries will be sent this will result in the creation of a ‘requested form’.

A form can be saved as ‘incomplete’ at any time by clicking on ‘Save’ or on ‘Save & Close’, even if mandatory data has not been completed. Save a form as incomplete
