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 (DFG SFB/TRR 205).

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 the REDCap administrator.

Rules and Responsibilities

Use of this service is subject to certain rules and responsibilities constituting fair usage and protecting the rights of patients whose details are contained within the registry, as well as the clinicians. In summary these include: Only summary patient information allowing potential collaborations will be held in the registry; detailed information that could allow identification will not be held. You are not allowed to enter any information that would directly identify a patient or could be used for that purpose (personal identifiable information) (including but not limited to names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses). Users will only be allowed to browse the registry following approval from the project consortium. Audit tracking software monitors access patterns, machine locations and user IDs. With this information it is possible to accurately track and identify any illegal usage.

Privacy policy The online registry does log the user's IP address and email address. These data will solely be used to run this service and not be shared with third parties. The website and server logs are hosted by ZIH at TU Dresden. We will not collect any information about you except that required for conducting research within the consortium, enforcing consortium privacy rules, or for system administration of the registry. The service operators are not able to connect the pseudonymised data entered here to persons. Additionally, ethical consent for storing patient information in the registry will need to be obtained according to the statutes of your country and institution. It is within the responsibility of the study coordinators and PIs to make sure that only pseudonymised patient data but no personal identifiable information is entered into the registry. Please take note of the REDCap Imprint and notes on accessibility.
