Electronic Data Capture
REDCap Research Databases and Survey Forms
REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a modern, secure software application for building and managing online clinical research databases and survey forms. The application allows users to quickly create research databases and data entry web-based screens and to link their collected data with existing statistical software tools. It is a replacement for all Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and Access databases for study data, improving data security, online access and the quality of data collected.
The CTSC Biomedical Informatics team can provide the tools and expertise to help researchers create databases for research studies. Specifically, we can help:
- Determine data specifications.
- Supply consistent terminology.
- Provide text for use in the informatics sections of grant applications.
- Provide assistance in preparation of a data set for statistical analysis.
