Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap)

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a versatile, secure, and mostly self-service web application that enables users to quickly build and deploy data collection projects and surveys. It is designed to be able to support a variety of data capture strategies, workflows, and compliance requirements, including HIPAA.

Although primarily geared toward research studies, REDCap may also be used to support quality improvement (QA/QI) and operational projects that have been sanctioned by the institution.

The application is licensed to Stony Brook University under a consortium agreement with Vanderbilt University. For more information on the REDCap consortium, visit
