Introduction to REDCap™

Are you looking for a way to manage your data? REDCap™ (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies. Join Brian Wilson, Tufts CTSI Senior Systems Project Manager, for a hands-on introduction to the latest version of REDCap, and you will learn how to log in, create a simple survey and database, and navigate the user access dashboard. You will also gain experience with data fields and validation features in the user-friendly data entry interface. In addition, this seminar covers security features, HIPAA compliance, data export tools, and branching logic.

Experience level: Beginner

By the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • List the benefits of using REDCap
  • Describe how to create a survey
  • Explain the differences between a variable and field name
  • Discuss the differences between an anonymous and identified survey
  • Describe how to set up a distribution list to disseminate a survey
  • Identify the resources available for REDCap help and support.
