See you in Brussels: the European OpenClinica meeting

In a few days, the 14th of April, I will be attending as a panelist the first European OpenClinica meeting, in the “regulatory considerations” panel. It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet all the other OpenClinica users and developers, and in general talk and share experiences. As I will stay there for the evening, I would love to invite all friends and open source enthusiasts that happen to be in Brussels that night for a chat and a Belgian beer.

As for those that are not aware of OpenClinica: it is a shining example of open source software for health care; it is a Java-based server system that allows to create secure web forms for clinical data acquisition (and much more). The OpenClinica software platform supports clinical data submission, validation, and annotation; data filtering and extraction, study auditing, de-identification of Protected Health Information (PHI) and much more. It is distributed under the LGPL, and does have some really nice features (like the design of forms using spreadsheets – extremely intuitive).

We have used it in several regional and national trials, and even trialed it as a mobile data acquisition platform.

If you can’t be in Brussels, but are interested in open source health care, check out OpenClinica.
