Hear it From Them

The collaboration with REDCap worked very smoothly and efficiently. The end result was that I was able to complete and publish three studies in a span of less than three years

The Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) resource offers investigators a one-stop-shop to collect data, create standardized surveys, and export data to statistical software packages.

It includes a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad-hoc reporting tools, as well as advanced features like branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields.

Biomedical informatics, which marries computer programming with large health data sets for fast analysis, requires a specialized skill set that many researchers do not have.

But REDCap’s automated tools make biomedical informatics much more accessible to investigators with or without prior experience.

The ITM partners with the CRI to give researchers access to a free, convenient, secure, and accurate web-based platform that offers a suite of data collection strategies.

REDCap is used worldwide by more than 312,000 investigators in 97 countries spanning numerous research focus areas.

Since REDCap was implemented at UChicago about five years ago, more than 1,900 researchers have used it on more than 1,500 projects.

And demand for REDCap services just keep growing. In 2015 alone, more than 540 new projects and almost 600 new users joined REDCap at UChicago.
