English abstract:
Nowadays, clinical studies are often performed with the
help of paper based diaries which are kept by the patient
or paper based forms which are completed by the physician
during the patient interview. When using a paper based form
for data collection there are several main problems [1, 2]:
Errors when transcribing; Inability to validate the input data;
Loss of recorded data due to loss or damaging of the
physical medium (e.g. a sheet or diary). Personal Digital
Assistant (PDA) based applications for medical care speed
up the collection of data at the point of care and ensure data
quality and consistency [2, 3, 4, 5].
We developed a PDA based system for collecting data at
the point of care. For supporting different kinds of studies,
we allow the interface to be generated dynamically based on
the requirements of each study. The collected data is then
synchronized onto a central server with suitable backup
strategies to prevent loss of data.
