Welcome to REDCap!
REDCap is a mature, secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases.
Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing
projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or
2) the offline method by constructing a 'data dictionary' template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap.
Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.
REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical
packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools,
and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields.
1. REDCap is for use only in support of academic research. Do NOT use REDCap for other purposes, for instance to store official university business data, patient care data, or electronic health records (EHRs). If you need further clarification on appropriate use, please contact us (see contact information below).
2. When using REDCap for storing academic research data containing electronic protected health information (ePHI), please note that you and the Principal Investigator (PI) are responsible for the privacy and security of these data and for compliance with any applicable federal and state laws and regulations, and institutional policies; this includes the appropriate Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals and a Data Management Plan. Be advised that CTSI provides technical and physical controls against the unauthorized release of data in accordance with HIPAA for this software tool, but responsibility for administrative controls (including granting access and terminating access, providing training, creating policies on usage, etc.), rests with you and the PI.
