Duplicate Case Check Criteria - Why 90 Days (Doc ID 746528.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2008

Applies to:

Adverse Event Reporting System - Version: 4.5.1 to 4.6.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The description of the duplicate case check for non-clinical AE cases (and other case types) in the Admin. guide for AERS states the following:

"The critical fields captured at case creation are compared with existing values of non-clinical
cases received within the last 90 days." I have some questions regarding the 90 day criteria for
this check:

  1. Why are only those cases received within the last 90 days identified as possible duplicates?
  2. Why aren't all cases (regardless of case create date) included?
  3. I understand how this criteria would apply to a case that is being entered on the Triage form
    (i.e. a new case). But how does this logic apply to older cases? For example, if I run the duplicate case check for a non-clinical case that was created several years ago, will the duplicate case
    check only identify potential duplicate cases created within the last 90 days?
  4. How could I identify a duplicate case that is older than 90 days?
