Adverse event reporting system (caAERS)
Collecting and reporting participant adverse events that occur during clinical trials can be easily accomplished using the Adverse Event Reporting System (caAERS). This application supports regulatory and protocol compliance for adverse event report and allows local collection, management, and querying of adverse event data, whether routine or serious. The built-in, configurable rules engine helps determine whether adverse events are serious or routine. It also supports service-based integration of data from other clinical trials management systems.

caAERS is developed and maintained by the Clinical Trials Management Systems (CTMS) Workspace, which works to produce modular and interoperable and standards-based software tools designed to meet diverse clinical trials management needs.
caBIG« offers a number of support options for those learning about and deploying caBIG« tools and resources.
caAERS is part of a collection of clinical research software applications designed to meet the diverse needs of clinical trials management. Applications and infrastructure of interest include:
- Clinical trial data management system (Cancer Central Clinical Database - C3D): Collect clinical trial data using standard case report forms (CRFs), and support electronic submission of clinical trials data to the NCI Clinical Data System and the Clinical Trial Monitoring.
- Clinical trial participant registry (Central Clinical Participant Registry - C3PR): Create standardized registration templates; enroll, register, and randomize study participants; and track enrollment statistics.
- Clinical trial workflow integrator (Integration Hub): Support clinical trials workflow by capturing data from clinical systems and connecting to other caBIG«-compatible clinical trial databases.
- Clinical trial data viewer (Lab Viewer): Send, receive, and view clinical data from electronic case report forms (e-CRFs), patient registries and calendars, and connect with existing laboratory, adverse event, and data management systems.
- Clinical trial participant calendar (Patient Study Calendar - PSC): Create study calendar templates, manage clinical trial participants, and track participant registration and activities.
- Exchange information with 3rd party tools (Clinical Connector): Connect external applications with the C3D Clinical Database.
