A web and browser-based software solution, REDCap is a tool that helps to organize, manage, schedule and track study-related data. The software is free of charge and is currently in use by over 130 users at St. Joe’s.

REDCap allows researchers to build and manage online surveys and databases quickly and securely. It can be used to create case report forms, validate data entry in real-time, and export easily to Excel, PDF, and common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R).

“Unlike other spreadsheet and database programs, REDCap was designed for research,” states Dr. Gary Foster, Biostatistician. “It allows you to define every field, making cross-referencing and analyzing data much easier in the long run.”

The software also allows you schedule and track critical study events – such as blood-draws, participant visits, and more.

REDCap is easy to learn and easy to use. If you would like to get started using REDCap for your research studies or become a part of the REDCap User Group, please contact Doug Campbell at dcampbel@stjoes.ca or at extension 34913.
