Registry Release Updates

The EBMT Registry is a web application where data entry can take place. The web application was released for all users on August 24th, 2023. The release version is referred to as version 1.0.

Important information

Multiple users of EBMT Registry recently encountered a pop-up window with notification about Irreversible action on dependent fields and removal of data from some data fields listed (see example below). This notification appears only for data migrated from previous systems.

Pop-up on dependent fields

Please note that this is not a system bug or error, but an informative message to users about the way the migrated data is currently structured in the events in the EBMT Registry. Data Editors are asked to read the information and click the ‘Submit change’ button. If users fail to Submit changes, they will be shown this pop-up window every time the event is loaded until changes are accepted. It is important that patient events are synchronised with the logic and structure of the form (visibility conditions) and no contradictions in the migrated data are present, e.g. patient was reported as alive and also present cause of death in the old systems. If you think that the mistake was made in the old system you can correct it appropriately in the Registry. However the system automatically takes the primary response as the correct one, in this case that the patient is alive and removes the cause of death.

In the EBMT Registry, dependencies between data fields are currently set up in such a way that depending on the answer in one data field, only relevant sub-questions are shown.

Due to the fact that dependencies between data fields were changed in the EBMT Registry compared to ProMISe, and present availability to switch the dynamic filtering off in ProMISe, some of the data registered in ProMISe does not match the new dependencies.

For example, in ProMISe the user could report absence of GvHD and also record the aGvHD grade 0 (none). If the answer to the first question (GvHD present yes/no) is answered ‘no’ in the EBMT Registry (no observed GvHD), the user is not able to register detailed information about aGvHD and cGvHD due to the introduced dependencies and visibility conditions (these fields are not shown and thus cannot be filled in). If data is entered for the questions depending on the overarching question (in this example GvHD yes/no), and the answer to the main question changes from yes to no, the data in the sub questions will be removed.

Export button

The export button was removed from the EBMT Registry in preparation for version 2 of the core dataset forms configuration in the system. Please note that this functionality is currently not available and users are asked to use MicroStrategy to review or extract data. This is a temporary inconvenience and we will keep users updated on this topic.

Save changes button

The Save changes button in some of the patient/donor events may be shown as active. This is not considered a bug. This may appear in case of updates in a particular event form configuration or when migration to some data fields was performed. The users are advised to click Save changes button in such cases to save its last version to the database.

Due to maintenance or migrations the EBMT Registry will be closed on the following dates:
