To improve data quality, clinical cohort studies require ongoing centralized data monitoring. Results of data quality monitoring are often reported in a general format, without individual feedback for different types of users within the research consortium. Several R packages provide the possibility for an easy to use approach to analyze and communicate information in interactive web-based forms. This article describes a pilot, which is applied in a German infectious disease cohort using interactive feedback and gamification to report data quality, to ultimately increase the quality of research outcomes.
