openCDMS - The open source clinical data management system

After nearly 10 years, the openCDMS system will be closed down at the end of 2014. We won't be taking on any new trials or studies. Arrangements are in place with existing customers for support of their existing studies to agreed end dates.


The openCDMS project is a community effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured and open source clinical data management system for studies and trials. The philosophy behind openCDMS is to enable clinical researchers to manage the full life cycle of their clinical research project, from design through to archiving, without any specialist knowledge of databases or IT systems.

openCDMS provides purpose built visual tools the enable clinical researchers to design, develop, implement, and manage large scale, multi-centre studies and trials quickly and easily.

openCDMS is mature and stable and is used by the UK Mental Health Research Network, the UK Diabetes Research Network and the National Institute of Health Research.

openCDMS has a feature set that is comparable with high-end commercial systems but is available under a free software license.

openCDMS is actively developed and maintained by a core team of developers at the University of Manchester and a growing network of collaborators and contributors.

openCDMS relies on the generous support of our sponsors.
