The C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research recently hosted the second seminar of the four-part BIC Brown Bag Lunch series.
Tim Aro, information systems manager for the CCTR’s Biomedical Informatics Core (BIC), and Michael Tran, IT specialist for BIC, reviewed the benefits of REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture), the basics of building a project, advanced features, and the available data management support services offered by the CCTR.
A survey conducted in the summer of 2007 found that of 200 researchers, 80% were using Microsoft Excel as a database platform. In response to these findings, REDCap was created as a way of “making it easy to do the right thing,” Aro said.
In addition to being a secure platform, REDCap allows researchers to export and report on data, import and compare data, log field comments, lock records from further editing, and much more.
At the completion of Aro’s presentation, Tran reviewed more advanced REDCap features, such as branching logic and the ability to import data into REDCap from external data sources, including text files, databases, and electronic medical records (EMR).
