Welcome to REDCap!

REDCap is a secure web platform for building and managing online databases and surveys. REDCap's streamlined process for rapidly creating and designing projects offers a vast array of tools that can be tailored to virtually any data collection strategy.

REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools, and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading, and calculated fields.

Learn more about REDCap by watching a brief summary video (4 min). If you would like to view other quick video tutorials of REDCap in action and an overview of its features, please see the Training Resources page.

Please note that any publication that results from a project utilizing REDCap should cite grant support (CTSA NIH Grant UL1TR001105).

NOTICE: If you are collecting data for the purposes of human subjects research, review and approval of the project is required by your Institutional Review Board.

If you require assistance or have any questions about REDCap, please contact REDCap Survey Administrator.

Be sure to test your project thoroughly before moving to production. See instructions here.

There is no charge for use of REDCap.

Research Projects require an approved IRB Protocol prior to being Moved to Production and require additional time to move them due to regulatory checks.

REDCap requires an Institutional ID. Non-UTSW Users must be created by the REDCap Administrator.

IRB approval is required for use in Clinical Research.

Use of REDCap outside of UT Southwestern or for purposes for the benefit of another party is strictly prohibited. Any other non-profit entities (such as educational institutions) can apply for their own REDCap license through Vanderbilt.
