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 support a variety of data capture strategies, workflows, and compliance requirements, including HIPAA. Although mostly geared toward research studies, REDCap can additionally be used in quality improvement (QI) projects as well as operations.

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