Randomization is an inherent part of Randomized Clinical Trials (RCTs), typically requiring the split of participants in intervention and control groups. We present a web service supporting randomized patient distribution, developed in the context of the MyPal project RCT. The randomization process is based on a block permutation approach to mitigate the risk of various kind of biases. The presented service can be used via its web user interface to produce randomized lists of patients distributed in the various study groups, with a variant block size. Alternatively, the presented service can be integrated as part of wider IT systems supporting clinical trials via a REST interface following a micro-service architectural pattern.
