False data prevention

Hi everyone,

We are new to CommCare, but trying to determine if there is any way to
prevent false data entry. We will be using mobile data collection
administered by clinicians for a study, but we want to make sure that only
the participant/patient is entering data into the app even though it will
be an app on the tablet of the clinician. Does that make sense? Is there
anything like this?

Thanks so much!
Emily

Hi Emily!

There are a few ways that you can perform this kind of workflow, but they
can be a bit tricky to enforce, for obvious reasons.

One is to use one of CommCare’s multimedia question types (audio recording,
or image recording) to identify that a unique person was present during the
visit. Unfortunately, this won’t really establish that the patient is
entering data, simply that they are present. You could use the audio
recording question as a “consent and understanding” fingerprint, by having
the user say out loud that they were the one entering the data, which
establishes their understanding that they were supposed to be the ones
filling things out.
