Brechtje Hesseling

High-quality data collection

2018-02-01

Pros

What I like about Castor is that I can create a user-friendly database that will also create a user-friendly output, i.e. that I can already prepare the data as much as possible to make data analysis easier.

Cons

More possibilities regarding surveys would add even more value: automatic reminders to subjects to complete their survey, notifications if surveys have not been completed yet (in addition to the existing notifications that surveys have been completed).

Response from Castor


Thank you for your excellent feedback.

Regarding your points:
- Currently we recommend using the new "Repeated measures" feature to create your own medication module. We will try to include medication lists in Castor but that is difficult due to international differences
- We have built our Biased Coin Minimization (BCM) algorithm and are currently validating it, we will update you when it is released!
- This is a very valid point and was developed in the current 'sprint', it will be released in in version 4.7.

Again, thanks for the feedback, this is what we need to keep on improving Castor EDC!

National survey on fertility preservation: done in one afternoon

2015-12-17

The participants of the survey were able to fill it out, with hardly any intrtoduction needed. It is easy to design different user roles, to ensure that participants can only see their own data and not the data entered by the other participants.

Thanks Johan! True, we are constantly improving.

But I hope you agree that our current version is more than capable of supporting researchers in their daily needs? :) But of course that shouldn't keep us from innovating as much as we can!

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the review! Some great points. Keyboard navigation can indeed be approved, something we will work on. Performance is being constantly improved and also affected, for instance, by using many calculation fields in your forms. If these issues occur very often, please reach out to us!
