Patient attachments

If patient attachments are enabled for your trial you can upload documents associated with a patient for storage in the patient’s CRF.

Note: It is essential that you do not upload documents containing personally identifiable patient information.

The specification page will list details of the maximum file size allowed for an individual attachment and the proportion of the space you have available for attachments that has been used.
