REDCap

Research Electronic Data Capture: Build queries, visualizations, dashboards, and analytics

Institutions: DFCI

At this time, the REDCap team is unable to take on new projects as we are building out our capabilities, governance, and regulatory processes to support data curation.

We look forward to providing governance oversight, established infrastructure, and support for new data curation projects by October 1, 2021.

As part of REDCap Phase 2 we will be implementing survey capabilities that will be available for use come early Spring 2022.

Please submit a ticket through the IS Service Hub if you are having issues with your current DFCI REDCap project or you'd like to learn more about REDCap capabilities.

Areas we can assist with:

  • How do I get access and create a new project?
  • What type of projects are best suited for REDCap?
  • How do I do X in REDCap? (e.g., piping data)
  • How do I fix problem Y in REDCap?
