Getting started

Investigator accounts

If you will be entering CRF data on subjects, an administrator for your trial will create your user account. Administrators are usually staff at the trial coordinating centre. The login details will be sent to your email address. This user account will normally be associated with your site and you will be able to view and add data for subjects at this site. Depending on a trial-wide setting controlled by administrators you may also be able to edit data.

When you login, you will normally first arrive at a summary page showing the trials you have access to. You can also manage your account details and change your password here. You can get to the summary page at any time using the Home link.

Once you access a trial you will be able to see enrolled subjects at your site and enter data yourself.

Administrator accounts

When a Red Pill system is set up, the first administrator account is created by Sealed Envelope and the login details are sent to that person’s email address. The administrator should log in and create the trial sites, unless the sites have been pre-coded by Sealed Envelope.

You do not need to add all your sites at once - you can come back later and add more sites as needed.

Next you should add some investigator accounts for each site so that data entry can be performed by staff at the sites. You do this through the Access application. Check the settings page and make any adjustments to suit your trial.

Finally check the specification page and case report forms and report any discrepancies or errors to Sealed Envelope.
