Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap)




The Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) System is used to provide a centralised secured data management platform that facilitates the capture, management, and sharing of research data.

REDCap is a National Institute of Health-funded, collaborative software project undertaken by Vanderbilt University in the United States.

Researchers can use a streamlined process to design survey/data collection portals and databases either online (via web browsers) or offline (via Excel). REDCap provides audit trails for tracking data manipulation and user activities, as well as seamless data integration to advanced analytics platforms such as Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), Excel, PDF, and common statistical packages such as SPSS, SAS, Stata, and R.
