OpenSpecimen allows users to add existing participants to another protocol. You can use any of the below fields to uniquely identify a participant:
MRN + MRN site
PPID is de-identified patient identifier within a collection protocol, and thus it does not uniquely identify a participant across the system.
E.g., Register a participant having eMPI ‘110231’ (already present in CP ‘Skin Cancer Study’) to another CP ‘Lung Cancer Research Study1’.
Navigate to the 'Collection Protocols' list view → More → ‘Biospecimen Data’.
Select 'Participant Registrations’ from the 'Select Records Type' dropdown and download the template file from UI.
Add the existing eMPI or MRN + MRN site of the participant under the respective column in the template file.
Add a short title and PPID (if auto-generation is off) of another CP on which the user is going to register the participant in the columns ‘CPR#1#CP Short Title’ and ‘CPR#1#PPID’ respectively.
Upload the file and select ‘Import Type’ as ‘Create’ → ‘Validate and Import’.
The system will register the participant to another CP using the existing eMPI.
