REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, Web-based application designed to support data capture and storage for research studies, providing: 1) an intuitive interface for validated data entry; 2) audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures; 3) automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages; and 4) procedures for importing data from external sources. REDCap has been designed to allow for compliance with such standards as HIPAA, 21 CFR Part 11, FISMA (low, moderate, high), and international standards. Also included are a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools, and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields. The University of Arizona is an institutional member with a Bioinformatics Manager in the CaTS Research Center responsible for development and maintenance. This application will be used in the development of electronic forms for data collection to be used by study staff in screening and seeing subjects in CaTS for study visits.
