DFcollect – DFdiscover on your mobile device

DFcollect is a mobile, tablet-based data collection and data review solution for the DFdiscover software suite. It allows DFdiscover study data to be collected with tablets, either online or offline. Online data is available instantly in the central study database; offline data is available centrally as soon as online synchronization is initiated. It shares the same study data and data definition with the DFexplore desktop application and the DFweb browser solution, allowing each to be used simultaneously in differing environments.

DFcollect is an application built to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the DFdiscover API. It is provided to all licensed clients on an as-is basis. DFcollect may or may not be an appropriate tool for a specific clinical trial. Please consult with the clinical trial team to determine whether it meets study requirements and its use is permitted. DFcollect, for example, does not (yet) support electronic signatures, lookup tables or some edit check functions. For such trials, DFexplore is the correct tool.
