REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, HIPAA compliant web-based application designed exclusively to support data capture for research studies. REDCap is a self-supported centralized electronic data capture (EDC) tool intended to replace Microsoft Excel and Access. RedCap is used for investigator driven studies where the Principal Investigator takes responsibility for the data model. RedCap can also be used for longitudinal database needs.
REDCap does not prevent acquisition of data that is out of range. It provides warning messages regarding out-of-range values but these can be overridden.
