What is REDCap Database?

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed exclusively to support data capture for research studies.

REDCap provides:

  1. an intuitive interface for data entry (with data validation)
  1. audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures
  1. automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R)
  1. procedures for importing data from external sources
  1. advanced features, such as branching logic and calculated fields.

The REDCap project ( http://project-redcap.org/) was developed by Vanderbilt University and includes more than 100 active institutional partners. It supports two web-based applications (REDCap and REDCap Survey) designed exclusively to support data capture for research studies. Currently over 1,000 studies spanning numerous research areas utilize REDCap.

Through the Division of Biostatistics, Department of Biostatistics, consultation is offered to the researcher to determine if a REDCap database is appropriate for the researchers study.

A brief description of the REDCap Database Creation Process

STEP 1. LEARN

Submit a Project Registration Request at  http://biostat-pts.kumc.edu/eres/jsp/kumcpr.jsp to request a meeting to learn more about REDCap. Once your meeting is scheduled this will be a face to face between an informatics staff member(s) and the investigator and his/her staff. The meeting centers around the timeline and data requirements for the study.

STEP 2. DEFINE

After the meeting, the investigator and his/her staff define their data variables and their properties

STEP 3. CREATE

The investigator and his/her staff create their REDCap database online as you go or upload the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Any questions or concerns should be directed to KUMC REDCap Support

STEP 4. PREVIEW

Preview your REDCap database or REDCap Survey content online, add study member(s) permissions and test functionality.

STEP 5. REVISE

Revise your REDCap database or REDCap Survey if any changes are needed.

STEP 6. LAUNCH

After review by our team your REDCap database or REDCap Survey will be launched into production. The investigator and his/her staff are now able to enter the necessary data for their study.
