Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a secure and HIPAA-compliant web-based system for building and managing web-based research projects, such as surveys and databases. The REDCap system provides functionality and features to enable researchers to rapidly develop databases and online surveys. These databases, data entry forms and surveys are intuitive, easy-to-use tools for collecting data, including data validation.
REDCap offers a Data Export Utility, which enables researchers to export their data in an automated manner into formats that are compatible with commonly used statistical analysis packages, such as SAS, SPSS, Stata and R.
Advanced features of the system include branching logic for dynamic data-entry-form generation, file uploading, data importing and embedded calculated database fields. REDCap is offered to the UCSF Research Community and its collaborators. This application is available for research purposes only.
