The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children’s National (CTSI-CN) is pleased to continue to offer Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) training to the Children’s National and GW research communities.

Would your study or research benefit from web-based data entry? REDCap might be for you!

What is REDCap?

  • Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a web-based system for data collection that allows users to build and manage online surveys and databases quickly and securely.
  • Data entry operators or people taking online surveys enter data in any web browser, either locally or from remote locations.

Why REDCap?

  • Easy and intuitive to design, develop, and use data collection forms/screens
  • Screen layouts are clear and simply to navigate
  • REDCap provides audit trails for tracking the history of data entry and revision
  • REDCap permits downloads of data to Excel, PDF, SAS, Stata, R, and SPSS
  • Free use for  members of the CTSI-CN or member institutions.

Due to its popularity at Children’s National and GW, and the ever-increasing need for REDCap support, we have assembled a small REDCap Support Team to assist new researchers in the start-up process of using REDCap. They may be reached at redcap@childrensnational.org.
