DATAONE EDC system has inbuilt paperless query management system. The process of query Generation, Response, Review and Closure, is handled within EDC system itself, with no requirement of external resources. System has three inbuilt capabilities for query generation:
EDC system sends automated notifications to site on query generation or review; and to reviewer/monitor on response from Sites. System offers option to Reviewer/monitor to send back query to site, if not satisfied with response. System provides real time query view at each stage, with provision of generating PDF file of query for documentation purposes.
The EDC system provides real time query tracking and current status notification, and downloadable query log. In built OQMS helps in early generation and resolution of data issues.
