|Free, web-based electronic data capture tools to support clinical and research studies.||REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture)|
The following Harvard-affiliated institutions have adopted REDCap. If you're from an institution outside Harvard, please contact REDCap directly.
REDCap is a free, secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies. The system was developed by a multi-institutional consortium initiated at Vanderbilt University. Data collection is customized for each study or clinical trial by the research team with guidance from Harvard Catalyst EDC Support Staff. REDCap is designed to comply with HIPAA regulations. REDCap is not 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing projects, you may create and design databases and surveys using:
REDCap provides user-friendly web-based case report forms, real-time data entry validation (e.g. for data types and range checks), audit trails, and the ability to set up a calendar to schedule and track critical study events such as blood-draws, participant visits, etc. Also, designated users can assign different levels of access for each member of the research team.
REDCap also provides a powerful tool for creating and managing surveys in your web browser. Collect anonymous responses or track and identify responses from survey participants by:
