REDCap

Research Electronic Data Capture

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture.   REDCap was developed by Vanderbilt’s CTSA and is currently used and supported by thousands of consortium partners across the globe. REDCap at Duke is managed and supported by the Duke Office of Clinical Research (DOCR) Research Management Team, located in the School of Medicine. RMT provides research and data management support to investigators across Duke.

Advantages of Using REDCap @ Duke

  • DOCR’s instance of REDCap has been systematically tested and validated.
  • School of Medicine supports infrastructure costs associated with DOCR’s instance of REDCap, including dedicated servers, daily backups, application updates, and software validation.
  • DOCR initial consultations are free.  Contact us – DOCR’s data managers and analysts can help you find the best data collection solution for your project. 
  • Contracting with DOCR is often less expensive than hiring your own staff because you do not have to find, hire, and train staff, or worry about staff turnover.
  • DOCR provides training classes in the use of REDCap, available in the LMS system.

 

Build Options

  1. DOCR Build: DOCR will consult and build a database to your specifications.  The only cost to you is the percentage of the programmer’s effort needed to complete the work. There are no licensing or overhead fees.
  2. Study Team Build: Study teams may build their own databases in REDCap for free. DOCR provides support at no cost for builders and projects during weekly office hours.
